Frak! BSG season four dated for April

In space, no one can hear you scream, "Frak! They aren't airing the new season of Battlestar Galactica until April 2008!?!?"

Unfortunately, we're stuck here on Earth, which means the cacophony coming from fans of Battlestar is quite audible.

Late last week, executive producer Ronald D. Moore, while discussing his upcoming directorial debut (more on that in a bit), told the Los Angeles Times that the highly anticipated final season of Battlestar won't premiere until April 2008. The finale of season three aired in March 2007, meaning that more than a year will have passed between seasons when Battlestar is up and running again.

Moore did not mention whether the final season will be split up into two halves, with the second ending in 2009 as previously reported.

In September, members of the cast of the show were quoted as saying season four would begin in February, but reps from Sci Fi were unable to confirm the date, saying only that it would premiere in 2008.

In other news, Moore, who is the creative driving force behind the show, will make his directorial debut in an episode of the upcoming season. "For all I know, I'll hate directing, but right now I'm hungry for it," said the Emmy-nominated writer.

Until next April, Battlestar fans have the two-hour telefilm Razor to look forward to. Razor will air on Sci Fi on November 24, but Sci Fi is partnering up with Microsoft to bring the movie to theaters for a special screening. Theaters in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Chicago, Boston, Dallas, and Seattle will hold preview events on November 12. Admission is free, but seating is very limited. For theater and seating information, head to the event's official Web site.

An unrated and extended cut of Razor will also be available on DVD on December 4. The season-three Battlestar Galactica DVD still has not yet been dated.

with the success of heroes, maybe they're trying to make a play to move it to NBC. The timing is interesting to say the least.

way to go kill of a show before it shows its final season do people in tv world not know by delaying a show you have a very good chance of killing it .

the only thing that i can hope for is that SKY ONE in ireland and the uk might get it first and before scifi even get near showing it .

Well maybe it'll give them a chamce to fine tune the 4th season. The 3rd started off great but drifted once they left New Caprica. The last thing i want is for them to find Erth in some massive anti-climax

I watched the screener of Razor last night and I have to say it's not all that. It's good, but not great.

There must be a reason for their decision. The powers that be should explain themselves, even if it is an embarrassing tale of folly or misteps...

For frak's sake has Sci-Fi lost it's mind!? They have a winning show that evey man and his dog want to see and they won't air the fraking thing! What the hell is wrong with you people!? This show should have returned to the small screen this November right after razor aired... and splitting it into two and delaying the final half until 2009 is even more ridiculous! Someone at Sci-fi should get fired for this outrage! Send in the toasters!!!

What is the deal? Why stretch it out? Is this some way of recouping the huge numbers they once had? Very frustrating!

'The season-three Battlestar Galactica DVD still has not yet been dated.' I could swear you can already buy the season 3 DVD, or am I completely misunderstanding this?

I'd rather them push back the release of the season than split it in two. Not good news, but I can live with this. Just for the love of the fans...please don't split the season over two years!

I hate you Sci-Fi Channel! BSG is one of the only good shows you have. We don't wanna watch endless B-movies.
