'Battlestar's' Fourth Season Will Be Its Last


This upcoming season, the conflict between the humans and the Cylons will come to a close.

On Friday, June 1, "Battlestar Galactica's" executive producers Ronald D. Moore and David Eick announced that the fourth season of Sci Fi Channel's Peabody Award-winning show will be its final season. The 22-episode season is currently being shot in Vancouver.

"This show was always meant to have a beginning, a middle and finally, an end. Over the course of the last year, the story and the characters have been moving strongly toward that end and we've decided to listen to those internal voices and conclude the show on our own terms," say Eick and Moore in a statement. "On a personal level, it's been a creative privilege and an honor for all of us who work on the show and we know we'll be lucky to ever see its like again. And while we know our fans will be saddened to know the end is coming, they should brace themselves for a wild ride getting there -– we're going out with a bang."

Mark Stern, Executive Vice President of Original Programming at Sci Fi, adds, "We respect the producers' decision to end the series and are proud to have been the home of this groundbreaking show. We have always known that Ron and David had a plan for 'Galactica' and trust that fans can look forward to a truly amazing final season."

The latest season began with the Cylon occupation of New Caprica and ended with Baltar's (James Callis) trial and the unveiling of new Cylons.

A special two-hour extended event, titled "Razor" will premiere in November, setting the stage for the remainder of the season that will start in early 2008.
