Battlestar Galactica is officially coming back! Deadline reports Michael Lesslie has been named as showrunner for the upcoming Peacock reboot TV show.
The original ABC series ” centered on the last group of humans on the verge of extinction after a series of wars with a robot race, The Cylons, destroyed the Twelve Colonies. All the humans are left in one remaining battleship group, anchored by the Galactica, as they search for their last option for survival: a fabled Thirteenth Colony known as Earth.” The show ran from 1978 to 1979 and was rebooted in 2004 on the Sci-Fi Channel.
The new Battlestar Galactica comes from Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail. Michael Lesslie will write and executive produce the series for Peacock.
What do you think? Are you a fan of Battlestar Galactica? Will you watch the new reboot series?
BG Really looking forward to the reboot. Make sure it has an amazing cast like the BG that was done in 2004 . Needs better Cylons cgi Robots The Ceylon humans were perfect. Story needs to be similar or true to Story publicly already is familiar with. Huge fame base 2004 BG . Good luck
Would love to have a sequel to the original Battlestar Galactica
The Reboot That Was On For 5 Years With Grace Park Was A Awesome Show. It’s Going To Be Extremely Hard To Come Any Were Near As Excellent As That Was!!
You can’t improve on perfection and Battlestar was the perfect reboot. The vast majority of reboots can’t touch the original. Nor would another Battlestar.
Come On !!!
Please no !
The worst F*cked Idea of the the century.
Even dumber than any tweet from POTUS Trumpet.
I want the name of the person resposable for even thinking about it.
BSG 2003 is the best Reboot/remake ever made of any movie/show before and after.
Great news. It is a terrific show. What about the cast?
Yes, yes! Do it
A reboot of a reboot? No please.
Hell Yeah, I’ll watch. Loved the dark prev reboot.
I’ll watch this new reboot series if the storyline was similar to the original series instead of that 2004 dark reboot.
The darker reboot was far more enjoyable than the original series. Having said that, not really waiting for a reboot of any Battle Star Galactica.
StarGate would be be a far better prospect to reboot.
Would be nice, sure, but Stargate is SG-1 and SG-1 is Richard Dean Anderson. Without him, what’s the point 😉
(No mistake, I love the movie too 🙂 )
