Syfy's Battlestar Galactica Prequel 'Caprica' Has Been Canceled
Syfy's Battlestar Galactica prequelCapricahas become space dust... SyFy announced today that it will be pulling the show off the schedule effective immediately.
"We appreciate all the support that fans have shown for Caprica and are very proud of the producers, cast, writers and the rest of the amazing team that has been committed to this fine series," said Mark Stern, Syfy's EVP of original programming. "Unfortunately, despite its obvious quality, 'Caprica' has not been able to build the audience necessary to justify a second season."
The remaining first run episodes of Caprica - airing Tuesdays at 10/9c - will be removed from the schedule as of next Tuesday, November 2. These final five episodes of the season will be re-scheduled to air at a to be announced time in the first quarter of 2011, and will conclude the run of the series.
