Battlestar Galactica: Renewal for Season 4 (but new spin-off Caprica struggling?)

A quick news tidbit from a new blog – SyFy Portal.  Yes, I am somewhat embarrassed to admit that I read it.

The good news is that it looks like the SCI FI channel is ready to announce support for another season of Battlestar Galactica, probably my favorite drama right now that isn’t on HBO.  Season 3 is about to start up again after the mid-season cliffhanger on January 21st, with a move to Sunday nights.  If you are not Tivo’ing this or catching it on iTunes, it’s never too late.

The bad news is that the new spin-off show proposed by the creators of Battlestar Galactica, “Caprica”, may be having some trouble.  The article suggests that the new show is unlikely for 2007.  That might be a good thing, since the spin-off doesn’t sound that compelling, and might represent a real “jump the shark” moment for the series.

In any case, you can read more about it here.

  1. I think you are right! It would be better to concentrate on BSG, when the ratings for season 3 have dropped conpared to the last season.

    It’s going to be very interesting how BSG will do on sunday nights. I hope the show is going to live long and prosper for many more seasons!
