BSG Season 4 Rumors

Posted by Skye |

Well this comes as no surprise to me:

It looks like it's four and out for "Battlestar Galactica."

Both series stars Edward James Olmos and Katee Sackhoff, who play Adm. William Adama and Kara "Starbuck" Thrace on the series, told IESB's Stephanie Sanchez that SciFi Channel will officially pull the plug on "Battlestar Galactica" following its fourth season, which begins in January. "This will probably be the most extraordinary season of 'Battlestar,'" said Olmos, while attending the Saturn Awards Thursday night in Universal City, Calif. "It's the final season, so it's definitely going to be the most vicious. As far as we know, in respects of the way we have this show constructed, this is the final season."

After hearing that Olmos had already talked about it, Sackhoff almost confirmed to Sanchez that this would, in fact, be the final season of the show that has received across-the-board critical praise, but has been stumbling in the ratings in recent years. "I think part of the problem is that it's an expensive show,"said Sackhoff, who also implied that her guest role in the new NBC series "The Bionic Woman" may not be just a guest role after all.

I called this months ago, when the character of Starbuck took her own life in Maelstrom. You cannot kill off characters that provide the series dramatic juice and expect the series to remain relevant to the audience and the network.
