The Real Reason Galaxy Quest 2 Was Never Made

By 2015, Galaxy Quest‘s place in pop culture history had been pretty well cemented, and interested parties started priming the pump for another go ’round. The idea was actually to create a streaming series as a follow-up to the original film, with Entertainment Weekly reporting that Amazon Studios had begun development on the project in conjunction with Paramount. The show was even greenlit directly to series, giving fans plenty to look forward to.

The plans were short-lived. Tragically, in January of 2016, Galaxy Quest star Alan Rickman died at age 69 from pancreatic cancer. Sam Rockwell saw this, along with Tim Allen’s difficult-to-parse availability, as the death knell for the project.

Then, in 2017, Deadline reported that Amazon was still developing the project, with How Did This Get Made‘s Paul Scheer as the head writer. Those plans were “put on hold” the next year, reportedly as the result of Paramount TV president Amy Powell’s exit from her post.

The most recent word on any potential sequel projects came in January of 2021, when Tim Allen stated that a new entry in the series was stuck “in a holding pattern.”

“We talk about it all the time,” Allen told EW. “There is constantly a little flicker of a butane torch that we could reboot it with.” Translation: never give up. Never surrender.
