Galactica Renewed

Thank Frak for that! The excellent Battlestar Galactica has been renewed for a fourth season. This is really great news, Galactica is one of the best shows on TV right now, taking the mantle in my view as West Wing faded, and SG1 moves to an end.

As of today, Galactica is number one for me (it takes some getting into, but the catchup at the start of the episodes is helpful), second place goes to SG1.

Confirmation has appeared on the BSG site, TV Blend and the Chicago Tribune reports the rumour of renewal.

The Futon Critic cites the press release.

There is talk of a direct to dvd special, as well as a spinoff, showing the development of the Cylon - 'Caprica'. They've created something really special in galactica, I defy anyone to watch the pilot, with six walking in a crowded marketplace not to sit up and take notice!

Battlestar Galactica: Season 2 [2005] [2004] The pilot movie is now quite cheap, and both season 1 and season 2 are available in one boxed set. Season 3 is currently showing in the UK on Sky One.
