Toaster series Caprica is toast. Not totally unexpected with the low ratings it has had. Under a million viewers, 900 000 or so the last episode. Now BSG fans has to wait on Blood and Chrome the pilot for a new series set ten years into the first Cylon war. This could be a great thing but personally I am fed up with the BSG universe. Lets do something different, I am not interested in any more angels. Supernatural does that better. What? I am not bitter! Well, I am, quite a bit in fact.
From Syfy’s press release:
“The remaining first run episodes of Caprica – airing Tuesdays at 10/9c – will be removed from the schedule as of next Tuesday, November 2,” said the network in a statement. “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,” said Mark Stern, EVP of original programming at Syfy. “Unfortunately, despite its obvious quality, Caprica has not been able to build the audience necessary to justify a second season.”
