Futurama'Futurama''s second life will be even longer, thanks to the two-season renewal Comedy Central is about to give the series.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the animated show is close to being picked up for two more 13-episode seasons, with one to air next year and another in 2013. The show's season premiere in June saw 2.9 million viewers tuning in.

In February, star Katey Sagal told Vulture that the show had been picked up for another season, but there is no official word from the network yet.

Lucy Lawless Heading to 'Caprica' for Final Five Arc?

by Mike Moody, posted Feb 11th 2010 10:00AM
lucy lawless bsg capricaWith 'Caprica' struggling to find an audience, it seems natural for the show to hail the mother ship, 'Battlestar Galactica', for a little help.

According to TV Guide, 'Caprica' will soon begin an arc that reveals the backstory of 'BSG's "Final Five" Cylons.

It's unclear if the actors who originally portrayed The Five will return for the 'BSG' prequel, but we might get a visit from another familiar Cylon face. Word is that 'Caprica' producers have already asked Lucy Lawless to reprise the role of D'Anna, one of 'BSG's most troublesome toasters.

Trucco will play Kate's ex-husband, who also happens to be a lawyer. The show's premise stems on the death of Kate's dad, another lawyer, which sends her into a need for a new career of sorts.

Also signed on is Virginia Williams ('How I Met Your Mother') as an obsessive stepmother.

Do you want to see these Battlestar Galactica actors appear in Caprica?

by Mike Moody, posted May 13th 2009 8:09PM
Michael Trucco Kate Vernon Battlestr Galactica CapricaThis week, actors Michael Trucco and Kate Vernon both hinted that they'd like to appear in Caprica, the Battlestar Galactica prequel series.

The former BSG stars say it's possible for their characters, Sam Anders and Ellen Tigh, to appear on Caprica, which takes place roughly fifty years before the events of BSG.

The uncut, two-hour long Caprica pilot hit DVD last month, but the series won't premiere on Sci Fi Channel until 2010. Should Anders and Ellen be a part of it? (BSG spoilers after the jump!)

Olmos to direct Battlestar prequel movie

by Brett Love, posted Aug 7th 2008 10:02AM

Edward James Olmos - Battlestar GalacticaGood news everyone. It seems that this whole movie thing is working out quite nicely for the folks over at Sci Fi. Executive VP of original programming for Sci Fi, Mark Stern, now also counts himself as co-head of the newly formed Universal Cable Productions. Why should we care? Because at the end of the day that means a little more Battlestar Galactica.

The success of Razor is a big part of this. Stern describes it as doing "phenomenally well in the international and DVD market." It's led to a whole new way of financing and creating entertainment for the network. The new Battlestar project will air after the series completes its run next year. Edward James Olmos is on board to direct, and he'll have a script by Jane Espenson to work with. Both nice choices. Casting is still up in the air at the moment. So far, Michael Trucco (Anders), Aaron Douglas (Tyrol), and Dean Stockwell (Cavil) are confirmed.

The story is prequel-esque. It goes back to just after the Cylon destruction of human home worlds. We'll follow the Cylons as they deal with human survivors, aboard ships as well as on planets. There is also a hint that the movie will focus specifically on two of the Cylon agents.

Battlestar Galactica - Comic-Con Report

bsg panel
After a log day of being in Hall H and Ballroom 20, things started to come to an end for the busiest day of the 'Con with the Battlestar Galactica panel. Basically, if didn't already have your arse planted in a seat in Ballroom 20 for that panel, you weren't getting to see BSG. I'm either completely dedicated to the coverage for TV Squad or a complete fanboy for the show. I submit that I'm likely both.

I'm not going to post the full, detailed report yet, as Sci Fi has told me we'll have embeddable video to show you soon (here it is on SciFI.com). Seriously, there's no way I can put to justice the funny job that Kevin Smith did as moderator -- you have to see and hear it for yourself. I will, however, submit to you the highlights for now.

NY Comic-Con: Battlestar Galactica, Moonlight, Venture Bros. - VIDEOS

by Annie Wu, posted Apr 22nd 2008 8:22AM
BSG, Moonlight, and Venture Bros.

Okay, I'm finally back from the New York Comic-Con and I still smell like the Javits Convention Center. Fandom seeps into the deepest layers of one's skin and take at least a few weeks to wash out. It's a scientific fact.

The first panel I attended wasn't even TV-related. Worrying that the Battlestar Galactica room would fill before I could even step into the line, I sat through the preceding panel for Wall-E and Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian to guarantee a seat. As it turns out, the theater is absolutely huge and two big screens were on either side of the stage, so my worry was kind of pointless. I was reminded of what I already knew: Wall-E looks insanely cute, Chronicles of Narnia has a greasy-haired new guy and the Jesus lion again. However, this is when I began to play a game that lasted throughout the entire weekend: Analyze the differing levels of scary devotion throughout various fanbases!

Starbuck reveals Battlestar Galactica secrets for next season

by Richard Keller, posted Apr 23rd 2006 10:30AM

Katee Sackhoff of Battlestar GalacticaWhen you see Lt. Kara "Starbuck" Thrace on the season premiere of Battlestar Galactica this fall you'll notice a few things. First, her hair will be very, very short. Second, she will not be with the same man she was with at the end of last season.

This is according to Katee Sackhoff, who portrays Starbuck on the very popular Sci-Fi Channel series. In an interview on Zap2it.com, Sackhoff reveals that she will go through some very tough times in the first four episodes of the new season. By the fifth episode she will recommit herself to her military career and sport a nifty crew cut to go along with her new attitude.

Starbuck will also have a new love interest other than the man who she married during the second season finale. It's unsure if Samuel T. Anders (Michael Trucco) dies of the pneumonia he suffers during the finale, or while he resists the Cylon occupation.

Production on the third season of Battlestar Galactica began on April 10 and will continue until December, with the Sci-Fi Channel premiere in October.
