The Battlestar Galactica prequel, Caprica has been cancelled by Syfy. The show has just not been able to build up a big enough following to stay on air.
“The remaining first run episodes of Caprica – airing Tuesdays at 10/9c – will be removed from the schedule as of next Tuesday, November 2,” said the network in a statement. “These final five episodes of the season will be re-scheduled to air at a to be announced time in the first quarter of 2011, and will conclude the run of the series.”
If you are a Galactica fan, don’t worry. Syfy recently unveiled plans for another prequel. The network announced a new two-hour pilot for Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome, set 10 years into the first Cylon war. This prequel will be a little more action-packed than the slower pace of Caprica.
