The second half of Battlestar Galactica’s final season may possibly be delayed until April 2009, according to reports emerging from Dragon*Con 2008.
Aaron Douglas, who plays Specialist Galen Tyrol on the Peabody-winning show, apparently broke the news to fans at the convention, as well as adding a few choice words about the network. “Ten episodes is not a season,” said Douglas in reference to the already aired first half of the fourth season, while Edward James Olmos reportedly confirmed that the cast hadn’t been paid for two seasons, despite Sci Fi essentially marketing it as such.
The news comes through Geeks Of Doom, who have been covering the Atlanta convention. Although it hasn’t been picked up by major outlets yet, it does seem likely, given that the network will be looking to buoy up the release of Caprica and transfer as many fans as possible from its parent show. Although this is pure conjecture, it could mean that the series itself has been given a green light.
