SyFy has formally announced that the first season of “Caprica” will be its last and pulled the “Battlestar Galactica” prequel from the schedule, effective immediately.
The five remaining “Caprica” episodes will air in the first quarter of 2011, concluding the show’s series run.
Normally abrupt cancellations of this sort don’t include comment from the network, but SyFy acknowledged the importance of the “Battlestar Galactica” franchise to its brand.
“We appreciate all the support that fans have shown for ‘Caprica’ and are very proud of the producers, cast, writers and the rest of the amazing team that has been committed to this fine series,” states Mark Stern, Executive Vice President of Original Programming, SyFy and Co-Head of Content for Universal Cable Productions. “Unfortunately, despite its obvious quality, ‘Caprica’ has not been able to build the audience necessary to justify a second season.”
Well, first and foremost, let’s put that “first season” bullshit to rest. There were three mini seasons, and they were poorly spread out over three years with changing timeslots and confusing plot lines that were dependent on people knowing what happened previous episode. Hopefully SyFy can get their head out of their ass and the next BSG series will come out on time, with a better plot and more action.
