Syfy Cancels 'Battlestar Galactica' Prequel 'Caprica'

Syfy has pulled the plug on Caprica, a prequel to Battlestar Galactica.

“The remaining first run episodes of Caprica – airing Tuesdays at 10/9c – will be removed from the schedule as of next Tuesday, November 2,” Syfy said in a statement (via EW).

“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.”

“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,” Mark Stern, EVP of original programming at Syfy, added. “Unfortunately, despite its obvious quality, Caprica has not been able to build the audience necessary to justify a second season.”

    I tried getting into this show but I just couldn’t. Found it dry & boring; its “sequel” [revamped] “Battlestar Galactica” was just too dark, depressing & boring for me to watch for more 10 minutes before channel-surfing. A far cry from the original series that I loved & for which I NEVER missed an episode because it was pure escapism & fun.
    I’m sure there will be a LOT of angry people posting here & on other blogs… but I’m sure I read somewhere that another series in the franchise will soon appear – I can’t remember what it’s supposed to be about or its title, but I’m sure someone out there will know.

    the show was terribly boring … and also has nothing to do with battlestar galactica mythology.

    I really didn’t expect this from Syfy at all. They never really gave Caprica a chance. But now we know it got canned to makes way for the other BSG spin-off Blood and Chrome.
