The series was cancelled by Syfy last month and the network said at that time that the remaining episodes would return in the early part of the new year. The Battlestar Galactica prequel was a departure from the sci-fi action series and didn’t measure up in the ratings. The cable channel has given a greenlight to another prequel series that will be closer in tone to the original and is tentatively called Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome.
Of the Caprica cancellation, executive producer David Eick told EW, “I understand that these are rarely simple decisions and I know the current leadership at Syfy genuinely loved the show and were hell-bent on protecting it and seeing it succeed… Caprica was an extremely smart, unique show and it’ll take quite some time for me to get used to the idea that it’s really gone.
