The record held by The X Files.
Stargate SG-1 became the longest-running North American science fiction series on television, surpassing the nine seasons and 202 episodes of the The X-Files.
It is also listed in the 2007 Guinness World Records as the "longest-running science fiction show (consecutive)"; Doctor Who fans dispute this claim, as 694 episodes of the British show were produced and shown consecutively between 1963 and 1989.
