Nerds, dorks, dweebs--it's almost time to put on your Viper pilot cosplay outfit and get ready to watch one of the best shows on television end its run. It is with both a heavy heart and unbridled anticipation that Battlestar Galactica fans await the return of the show; on one hand, we're dying to know what happens, and on the other, it means the beginning of the end of one heck of a series.
Battlestar Galactica has been off the air since June, with Sci-Fi Channel's wacky scheduling cutting the show's final (*sniff*) season in half. But it is coming back, and after what felt like frakkin' years of waiting, we finally have a return date.
The second half of season four of Battlestar Galactica will get going on January 16 at 10 p.m., according to super-snoop Michael Ausiello of EW.com. And for those looking for an end date, Ausiello also says the series finale will take place on March 20.
The final stretch run of Battlestar Galactica, which, I will say again, is currently television's best science-fiction (and possibly drama) program, is slated for 10 episodes. However, producers have said that those 10 episodes will run at least 11 hours long, possibly more. AND--there is at least one post-series Battlestar Galactica TV movie in the works as well.
Ten more episodes, guys...are you ready!?
