A new set of webisodes to be available later in 2008
The Chicago Tribune reports that the Sci Fi Channel will produce a new set of webisodes and make them available during the mid-season hiatus. No word yet on the exact date of release.
Season 4.5 to start in the 1st Quarter of 2009
There have been quite a few developments this week. First off, the president of the Sci Fi Channel confirmed that the 2nd half of the season will begin airing in 2009. But it will be the 1st quarter of 2009, so we know the episodes will start to air in January, February or March.
The second half of the season may expand to 11 or 12 episodes
Ronald Moore is writing the script for the series finale himself. Apparently the script contains so much material that it will probably be necessary to expand the series finale to 2 or 3 episodes. Thus, the back half of the season may include as much as 12 episodes, not the 10 episodes previously announced.
Battlestar Galactica TV movies
It also looks like at least one of the rumored BSG TV movies will be made. No word yet on the other two movies that had been discussed on a few websites.
The Caprica prequel
The Caprica TV movie will air on the Sci Fi Channel later this year as a possible backdoor pilot. There are some concerns that the story is so dense that it might not work well as a stand-alone TV movie. However, if enough BSG fans and new viewers tune in -- and buy the DVD -- we could still see a weekly Caprica series at some point in the future.
You may comment on BSG news items but please do not post any significant spoilers from unaired episodes on this thread. I will try to edit this first post of the thread so that all major developments can be found in a convenient location.
