Sci Fi greenlights 'Battlestar' prequel
'Caprica' to star Eric Stoltz, Esai Morales
By DANIEL FRANKEL
'Caprica' is set 50 years prior to 'Battlestar Galactica.'

Sci Fi Channel has greenlit "Caprica," the much-anticipated prequel to hit series "Battlestar Galactica."

"Caprica" will star Eric Stoltz, Esai Morales, Paula Malcomson and Polly Walker, and will be set 50 years prior to "Galactica's" seminal attack on human civilization by those dreaded 'droids the Cylons. Family-drama-themed series will focus on the Earthlike planet of Caprica as two rival families deal with, among other topical issues, the broader implications of their society's emerging artificial intelligence technology sector.

This show looks very uninteresting, worse than SGU, imo. They should just continue with BSG and SGA, instead of making new shows. :S

I'm actually glad BSG will end. All good things must come to an end.It's much better to end it now than making more and more seasons like Stargate. And as for SGA, for me this show is agonizing to watch.And after some news I don't care about SGU either. For me, the whole Stargate franchise is dead.

I'm very happy that Scifi will continue to air very different scifi show as they've been airing BSG which is not a typical scifi show like ST or SG.

Good cast. Interestingly, they're all over or pushing 40. Not a youngster amongst them...

Eric Stoltz - 47
Esai Morales - 46
Polly Walker - 42
Paula Malcomson - 38

What is Sci-fi thinking!!!!!!!!! Where will they ever find the demographic to watch these geezers! ;)

YAYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!! :D I've liked the concept behind this show since we first heard of it. :)

I'm very happy that Scifi will continue to air very different scifi show as they've been airing BSG which is not a typical scifi show like ST or SG.I agree- I fail to grasp this "more more more" mentality people seem to have with shows. :rolleyes: More shows could do with taking a lead from BSG. BSG is the best show I've ever seen, it's likly to remain my favourite, I'm sad that that it's ending, but ultimately I am glad because I think they're doing it the right way.

And SGA this season ugh....."agonizing" is a good word. I agree that the Stargate franchise is pretty much dead- I never want to see the same thing happen with BSG.

The fact that Caprica is a very different kind of sci-fi show makes me happy- this may not have big space battles and whatnot, but I think Caprica sounds like it will cover the themes at the heart of science fiction. When it comes to television we sometimes forgot that the heart of science fiction is more about the questions of technology, etc, and how it relates to us as human beings, rather than explosions and battles.

What G.O.D and TrekGirl said.

"Agonizing" sums SGA up. S5 is just a load of unrelated fillers, bound by occaisional Michael references.

I'm gutted BSG is going; especially since S4 has built up to sheer brilliance. I was worried after S3, but now it's back on form and going to go out on a massive high.

It's a shame BSG didn't get more mainstream success. Sci-fi-avoiding mates would just mock when I suggested they try it. The stigma of the original cheese I guess... and the fact (despite spending $$$ on it), NBC left it on SciFi instead of taking a risk and showing it on NBC itself.

Caprica... again, why's it on SciFi? If it's determined to be "more of a family drama than a SciFi", then surely SciFi is the wrong home for it? Stick it on the mainstream, show some balls. If it's good, it'll succeed, and probably get non-Frakers into BSG... DVD sales innit.

I'm massively excited about Caprica, on the basis that there's something BSG-related at least to comfort us when it's gone.

I really agree with what you are saying. BSG, IMO is a brilliant example to SciFi. For one thing, the writing was good - I can hardly remember any empty irrelevant episodes, which became ubiquitous in SGA circa Season 4 and the latter part for Stargate SG-1 ( e.g Quarantine - a whole ep just about a city locking up). The really good episodes of Stargate IMO were the early ones (maybe exclude Emancipation...). They were well- written, and non-plot episodes actually contributed in some form even if it was just a random ep (e.g Tin Man). BSG is good, and thats why it will end with a bang. I would rather that than having lengthly unclear episodes with only about 5 OK episodes and the rest were crap (SGA S5, SG-1 S10.5).

BSG did brilliantly, now time for Caprica, which I think will be really interesting. For starters, we'll get to know a bit more about the Colonies' society, infrastructure (by that we mean the set for the Tollan new homeworld and Ba'al's time machine!). We'll also follow the Adama family, and if the series is in that timeframe, run into how Tigh ended up in the chain.

I´m glad SCIFICHANNEL at last made the good decision! I was getting worried. Still, I´d love to see the Pilot before 2010. This BSG hiatus is endless.

Great news!

'Battlestar Galactica' Prequel Gets 20 Episode Order

Series Slated for 2010 Premiere

Stars Eric Stoltz, Esai Morales, Paula Malcomson and Polly Walker

NEW YORK – December 2, 2008 - SCI FI Channel has greenlit production on the new original series Caprica, ordering 20 hours of the drama including the two-hour pilot, it was announced today by Dave Howe, President, SCI FI. Caprica is the prequel to SCI FI's hit original series Battlestar Galactica and stars Eric Stoltz (Milk, Chicago Hope), Esai Morales (Jericho, NYPD Blue), Paula Malcomson (Deadwood, ER) and Golden Globe nominee Polly Walker (Cane, Rome).

Set 50 years before Battlestar Galactica, Caprica follows two rival families – the Graystones and the Adamas – as they grow, compete, and thrive in the vibrant world of the 12 Colonies, a society recognizably close to our own. Enmeshed in the burgeoning technology of artificial intelligence and robotics that will eventually lead to the creation of the Cylons, the two houses go toe-to-toe blending action with corporate conspiracy and sexual politics. Caprica will deliver all of the passion, intrigue, political backbiting and family conflict in television's first science fiction family saga. Production on the series is slated to begin summer '09 in Vancouver for a 2010 premiere. Jeffrey Reiner (Friday Night Lights) directed the pilot.

"Caprica will build on Battlestar Galactica's acclaimed legacy of gripping drama and extraordinary characters," says Dave Howe in making the announcement. "It's the beginning of a brand new epic saga that will appeal to both new viewers, totally unfamiliar with the Battlestar franchise, as well as existing loyal and passionate Battlestar fans."

"Ron, David and Remi have created an amazing series with thought-provoking storytelling that deals with a world very similar to our own. It's definitely not as dark as Battlestar, but like that show, this series has smart, dimensional characters who grapple with issues of love, sex and politics from a world in transition," says Mark Stern, Executive Vice President, Original Programming for SCI FI & Co-Head Original Content, Universal Cable Productions.

As the series begins, a startling development is about to occur - the creation of the first cybernetic life-form node or "Cylon" – the ability to marry artificial intelligence with mechanical bodies. Joseph Adama (Esai Morales) – father of future Battlestar commander William Adama (Sina Najafi) – a renowned civil liberties lawyer, becomes an opponent of the experiments undertaken by the Graystones (Eric Stoltz), owners of a large computer corporation that is spearheading the development of these living robots: the Cylons.

Caprica is produced by Universal Cable Productions and executive produced by Ronald D. Moore and David Eick (Battlestar Galactica) and Remi Aubuchon (24). It is co-written by Aubuchon and Moore and directed by Jeffrey Reiner (Friday Night Lights).

SCI FI Wire is the premiere source for fast-breaking entertainment news related to science fiction, fantasy and horror on topics ranging from TV and movies to books and games. Rapid growth in traffic and ad sales propelled the relaunch SCI FI Wire as its own site, which will include a new logo and redesigned homepage.

"All three have been tremendously successful for us both in terms of audience and ad sales, and we expect Dvice.com, Fidgit.com and the newly launched Scifiwire.com to thrive in 2009."

I can't understand SciFi channel how could they order Caprica season 1 without the airing of pilot.... It is a very strange decision...

There were some short scenes from the show on scifi.com. I won't say I hate it, but it didn't grabbed my heart either. Greek mythology OK. Robot technology OK. But where are the cylons, space adventure, exiting discoveries? So maybe Caprica will be the new space-Dallas with A.I. feeling, but it almost doesn't bind to BSG at all with anything. :o

given the fact, that Caprica series takes place 10 years before the first war, it's obvious we won't see any skinjob from BSG.

But can someone please explain this unrated thing to me...?

I know Razor was 'unrated' yet here in the UK, it DOES have a rating, and it's a 15. I heard in another thread that when the Stargate movies were "unrated" one of the users (a mother) was concerned, because unrated usually means pornographic material (her words, not mine). So could someone please explain this?

Apparently in the US direct-to-DVD films or made for TV films are often released unrated. In the US this is legal because the MPAA is not a legal authority. In the UK, it's illegal to release anything that isn't BBFC rated unless it is marked as exempt.

Battlestar Prequel Caprica Will Debut on DVD
Feb 6, 2009 11:12 PM ET

Now this is peculiar. Caprica's two-hour pilot/TV movie will debut on DVD on April 21.

That's at least eight months before the Battlestar Galactica prequel begins its 22-episode run on the Sci Fi Channel. Just last month, in fact, BSG producers Ron Moore and David Eick confirmed to TVGuide.com's Nerd High Priestess Erin Fox that Caprica wouldn't premiere on the Sci Fi Channel until 2010.

Caprica Pilot on DVD April 21

The fact that we're watching the last episodes of Battlestar Galactica is a stark reminder that very soon the show will be gone. The finale airs March 20, and after that, there's going to be no more Starbuck, no more Adamas, no more Cylons...

But it turns out the Cylons, the Adamas, and the folks of the Twelve Colonies will be back sooner than we think. Even though Caprica, the prequel series that will explore the origins of the artificial intelligence that becomes the Cylon race, isn't due to start airing on Sci Fi for months yet (the channel has been vaguely signaling a premiere date sometime in 2010), the feature-length pilot is actually going to be released in April. And in an unusual (and very canny) move, the Caprica preview is bypassing TV broadcast and coming out straight to DVD.

I've read some reviews and I can't say I like what I'm hearing, not only because the consensus seems to be that it's a soap with the young vibe, but because I'm worried that if it's true that maybe Sci Fi is trying to push SGU in that direction too. :S

April 13th, 2009, 07:49 PM
not done watching it yet but I have to say the butler the greystones have is adorable to me for some reason

also spoilers

wow didnt take long to see the first cylon centurion which was lulzy since it couldent aim worth a damn and Admiral Adama's 69 years old I though he was a slightly younger in BSG

great sound track as well so far *makes note to buy soundtrack*

Edit:I finished it and

le spoilers

while I think It started off slow it got alot better towards the end, the Cylon part was awesome expecially the by your command line, and damn did it get alot better at shooting....plus the music became very galacticaish as well with the Drums and the Remix of ''wander my friends'' from Galactica


so Dvd here I come *hopes they dont release it with the S1 boxset like they did BSG*

Not in the pilot (available online and on DVD April 21), but according to SciFi veep Mark Stern, "I'm lobbying for that. There will definitely be references to Battlestar in Caprica at some point."

Eric Stoltz was really good. I look forward to seeing more from him. Esai Morales as Joseph Adama was really great to watch too. Two very fine actors, with some serious screen presence.

Five minutes in and I'm worried. If this is the sort of thing Sci Fi are pushing for then maybe SGU will be 90210 type stuff after all, because this certainly has been so far. :(

*edit*

Admittedly the 90210 vibe went away to an extent over time, though I'm still not sure how this will work as a series, it just seems too sombre to be something that people will tune in week in week out for, there's not much intrigue and I didn't think much to the characters either. I'll give it a go but I doubt it's something I'll be waiting in anticipation for.

*edit*

...and that CG was ****ing amazing.

Review: Caprica Spins Religion, Race Into Worthy Galactica Prequel

EXCERPT:

Caprica is a religious experience.

That's not to say the highly anticipated Battlestar Galactica prequel, which comes out on DVD Tuesday, is a blinding experience that will transform you forever. But the movie-length pilot makes it clear that theology will play a huge part in the series when it hits the airwaves in 2010, just as it did in Galactica.

Review: Caprica Is a Very Different but Worthy Prequel
By Matt Blum April 21, 2009 | 6:30:00

Battlestar Galactica this isn't. The pilot episode of Caprica is more grounded, both literally and figuratively. Where BSG depended on the interactions between many strong characters—so many that you could never really guess where any of them was going—Caprica has only a few. Where BSG had tightly-scripted action and life-or-death decisions in every episode, Caprica is slower and more methodical.

Also on hand, along with the aforementioned Caprica think-tank Ron Moore, David Eick and Jane Espenson, was series star Esai Morales, who plays Joeseph Adama, BSG's William Adama's (Edward James Olmos) father. Yes, Caprica is set squarely in the BSG universe, but it predates the fall of man, or the beginning of Galactica by almost five decades.

"Desperate Housewives" alum Kevin Murphy has put together an eclectic slate -- ranging from a CW drama on which he's working with "Smallville's" Tom Welling to a stage adaptation of "Heathers."

Murphy has also joined the staff of Syfy's "Battlestar Galactica" prequel "Caprica" and is supervising another project for USA.

As for "Caprica," Murphy has signed on as co-exec producer and is already working on his first script for the show.

"As a rabid 'Battlestar Galactica' fan, it's hard not to go in that writers room and not just grin ridiculously," Murphy said. "These are the people who made the best TV show ever. To be able to be a part of the legacy of that show, I'd be willing to pay them for that."

Past credits for Murphy,who’s repped by WME, also include "Reaper," "Ed" and the Showtime musical "Reefer Madness."

The series will premiere with a two-hour pilot that is already available as a standalone DVD. Eight additional hours of “Caprica” will air through March. Then the show will take a break and the remaining nine hours of “Caprica’s” first season will air some time in the second half of 2010.

If you’ve done the math in the previous paragraph, you’ve realized that “Caprica’s” episode order has been reduced by one hour. Syfy had originally commissioned a total of 20 hours for Season 1, but the show, which is currently in production on the last third of the season in Vancouver, will now consist of 19 hours.

Caprica - Jane Espenson Steps Aside as Showrunner

Syfy once said it was excited to have former "Battlestar Galactica" and "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" writer Jane Espenson take on showrunning duties for its upcoming prequel show "Caprica." But apparently, that excitement may have been short-lived.

Espenson is out as showrunner, replaced by Kevin Murphy, who joined "Caprica" last month as a co-executive producer to work on the second half of the show's first season, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Espenson is not leaving the show, however. She will remain an executive producer with Murphy and "Battlestar Galactica" developer Ronald D. Moore. Instead, according to a Syfy spokeswoman, Espenson wanted to focus more on writing than management.

"She and Kevin switched up duties a bit during the second half of 'Caprica' Season 1," a Syfy spokeswoman told Airlock Alpha. "Jane decided to get back into some more intensive writing rather than running the room, and so ... Kevin has been taking a bit more of a lead in breaking stories as a result."

However, the spokeswoman added, this is simply "business as usual." It "doesn't change anything," she said. "And Jane, along with Ron and David, is still an exec producer."

New Caprica Stills Reveal An Old BSG Crew Member

Some new character stills over at io9 reveal that Luciana Carro(Kat in Battlestar Galactica) will be part of the cast in the upcoming Caprica series...

Kat was a recurring character in BSG up until the end of season 2 when she sacrificed herself to save her crew mates. Her past was never really revealed. All we knew was that she was involved with some shady dealings back on Caprica(the planet) involving drugs. Was she a Cylon? The fact that the actress who played her, Luciana Carro is popping up in Caprica certainly suggests she may have been, although apparently she is playing a different character called Pryah, who works for Daniel Graystone. So who knows..but I doubt its a coincidence.

IF Magazine - Exclusive Interview: JANE ESPENSON LOOKS TO 'BATTLESTAR GALACTICA'S' PAST FOR SYFY'S 'CAPRICA'


Talking about the BATTLESTAR GALACTICA sequel, why she's on the show but no longer show runner, BUFFY comics, Danny Strong, hiring James Marsters and more.

There are a lot of intriguing things going on both in front of and behind the cameras on SyFy Channel’s new series CAPRICA. The series is a prequel to BATTLESTAR GALACTICA, with executive producers Ron Moore and David Eick shepherding the tale of how and why Cylons were created and how humanity got itself into the fix we saw chronicled in the previous series.

The Daily Beast - Sci-Fi TV Gets Frisky


Caprica, the Battlestar Galactica prequel, hopes to reach beyond the sci-fi audience with teen characters and “robot-fondling.” The Daily Beast talks to its producers. VIEW OUR EXCLUSIVE CLIP from the show.

In the past year, Syfy wrapped the four-season run of the network-defining Battlestar Galactica, but while the show’s fans mourned the loss of the intelligent and provocative series, its executive producers Ronald D. Moore and David Eick, and co-executive producer Jane Espenson, haven’t closed the doors on the franchise.

Torresani: 'Caprica role is challenging'

Alessandra Torresani has admitted that she has found her Caprica role challenging.

The 22-year-old actress, who plays the human, avatar and robot form of Zoe Graystone on the Battlestar Galactica prequel, told DS that the role has been "crazy".

"It's been crazy just trying different personalities all the time!" she said. "From the pilot everyone knows she's a 15-year-old girl. She's very headstrong and knows what she wants."

Describing the show, set 50 years before Battlestar, she added: "It's not really about all the guns and fighting and Cylons against the human race

Esai Morales: Caprica Is Like The Godfather

Esai Morales wants you to know that Caprica (premieres Friday, 9/8c on Syfy) is no Battlestar Galactica. "BSG is BSG, and we will never touch BSG because we're not in that business. We don't want to be," he tells TVGuide.com of the prequel. "We're trying to show that someone's parents and someone's pre-life is different than their children's." Set 58 years before the post-apocalyptic events of Battlestar, Caprica focuses on the thriving, technologically advanced Twelve Colonies that eventually create the Cylons. Morales plays Joseph Adama, a lawyer and father to BSG's Commander William Adama.

The elder Adama meets inventor Daniel Graystone (Eric Stoltz) when they both lose daughters in the same terrorist bombing. Graystone attempts to bring the girls back as robots, and it's from there that a "morally gray family saga unfolds," Morales says. Find out what else is in store this season and why the actor thinks the show is similar to The Godfather.

bear's blog entry on scoring "the plan"

MODERATE SPOILERS AHEAD:
covering it up to protect the innocent
;)
After many months (or arguably years) of anticipation, the “BSG” prequel series “Caprica” premieres tonight on SyFy. Originally released as a two-hour film on DVD last spring, with a subsequent soundtrack album release in June, most hard-core BSG fans have probably already experienced this. For any of you who don’t know, “Caprica” is a prequel series to “Battlestar Galactica” that chronicles the origins of the robotic Cylon race that will ultimately wipe out most of humanity.

Those of you who have been enjoying the soundtrack CD know that this two-hour film introduces several important melodic and rhythmic themes. Beginning next week, you will finally hear that musical world expand and develop into exciting new ideas, themes, melodies, songs and score. I also just tonight approved the final “Caprica Main Title” which you will hear next week (and it kicks ass).

I plan on blogging detailed entries about each episode, so check back each week after you’ve seen the show. And if you’re watching the pilot tonight for a second or third time, try to pick out the variations of the Graystone and Tauron Themes that are woven throughout the score.

There’s little I can say about the “Caprica” pilot that I didn’t already cover in my blog last spring, when the DVD came out. So, I’m reposting that entry with updated sound clips so you can hear the themes being discussed…

Seems like they are just going to be playing repeats of the edited non nude pilot repeatedly until 1/29/10 and then REBIRTH 9 times and then Pilot then REBIRTH 3 times then Pilot then REBIRTH. Man it goes on like that with all the eps.... Very frustrating looking at the ep lineup. Don't think I have ever seen one like this before.

Glad I got the DVD.

Syfy Standing Firmly Behind 'Caprica'

Thanks to the Internet and a thirst for information, television fans in 2010 are far more savvy than they have ever been before. Blogs, message boards, even Twitter are filled with discussions dissecting ratings, audience attitude and instant reactions to just about anything that pops up on the boob tube. But while smarter viewers typically result in smarter programs, it can sometimes backfire into rampant speculation that could help bury a show.

That's exactly what Syfy doesn't want to happen to its newest series "Caprica." And no matter what Entertainment Weekly's Michael Ausiello wants to predict with his cable scorecard, network executives say the "Battlestar Galactica" spinoff is here to stay.

"We're definitely with 'Caprica' for the long haul," Syfy's VP of original programming Mark Stern told Airlock Alpha Thursday. "There's no question about it. We knew exactly what it was not going to be, that is an easily adopted show. It's not 'Battlestar Galactica,' it's its own animal. And we definitely recognize that it's going to find its audience and it's going to grow its audience."

Exclusive: 'Caprica' producer Jane Espenson explains Sam Adama's tattoos

Getting ready to play a shirtless Sam Adama on Syfy's "Caprica" is no easy feat, Sasha Roiz told me during a recent trip to Chicago. The actor who plays the Tauron assassin, awesome uncle and gay family man has to spend hours getting the make-up applied. "Well, 2 ½ hours and like three or four makeup artists. So, I've got like six to eight sets of hands on me," he said, sometimes standing with his arms spread out. "It's a bit of an ordeal, but ... I just stand there and take it all." Tattoo-prep for scenes when he's full clothed, which would be the art on his hands and neck, is about a half hour.

Roiz also told me that writer/producer Jane Espenson came up with an entire history of Sam's tattoos, which he said tell Sam's story as a Tauron and a member of the Ha'la'tha gang. Via e-mail Espenson has kindly shared the meaning of all of Sam's tatts, which you can read on the jump.

Has Caprica Season Two Been Given The Green Light?

After such a Lengthy commissioning process, and a slightly shaky start, a second helping of Batlestar Galactica spin-off Caprica was not necessarily a given. But fans that were expecting to be singing "Cylon, farewell, auf wiedersehen, goodnight!" at the end of season one can breathe a sigh of relief: Caprica will definitely be returning to our screens.

While the Syfy channel are still remaining tight-lipped about season two's prospects, the show’s critical plaudits have been a delightful surprise. So much so, that they’ve already begun hiring staff for season two behind the scenes, according to a source working on the production. They told us that that they've been booked to start work at the end of the year, which should tie into a Jan 2011 air date.

I really hope so. But Syfy pulled the same crap with both Farscape and SG-1, "hey guys go ahead and get working on the next season, nothing to worry about--PSYCH! Suckers!"

So I'll wait for the official announcement before I get my hopes up.Its just basic business. Something losing money you get rid of the product

Basic business is one thing. Telling people to go ahead and get to work on the next chapter and then yanking the rug out from under them is quite another.

If you tell them not to worry and to get to work on more, then yes. Yes it is yanking the rug out from under them.

It would be different to be silent and then just cancel it; that's just business.

Business is not only about making money, taking riskes is a great part in it. And when you have put up massive sets like Caprica most likely has, I doubt you would give up on first try if you still had the possibility of making it work.

*creeps into thread* Oh, a few familiar faces in here! Just discovered Caprica - it was highly recommended to me by a friend, and I had some time to kill while Spn is on yet another hiatus *groan* so I gave it a shot. And I like it. Never watched the new BSG, though, so a lot of the referencing goes right over my head. I was too fond of the original series, and when I found out that my hero Starbuck was gonna be a GIRL I decided to give it a miss. But I must say, everything makes sense so far, so the claim that the show is for both BSG fans and newbies has merit. Looking forward to the next episode.

Question: Caprica is fraktacular! Got any scoop? —Sarah
Ausiello: I’m hearing something about a bitter mental standoff coming up between Zoe and Daniel. And THIS JUST IN from exec producer Jane Espenson: “Lacy is pulled deeper into a dangerous orbit. When the center cannot hold, we’ll see more than one character take genuinely desperate actions that change the course of the story entirely.”

DS Interview: Ronald D. Moore ('Caprica')

Earlier this year, Battlestar fans rejoiced at the arrival of Caprica, the latest project from the sci-fi franchise. Set 58 years before the events depicted in Galactica, the series - fronted by Alessandra Torresani- shows how robotic cylons first came to be. With life for the Graystones getting progressively worse as each episode airs, we decided it was time for a catch-up with series creator Ronald D. Moore to see if there's light at the end of the tunnel for sci-fi's most troubled clan.

Will the Final Five ever appear on ‘Caprica‘? I mean, shouldn’t they? – Qbert85
This question came up at last week’s screening of ‘Caprica’s cliffhanger-filled midseason finale, and ‘Battlestar’ boss man Ronald D. Moore explained that the iconic quintet are “very, very far away, traveling on a faster-than-lightspeed spacecraft to Caprica.” What that means is that any Cylons we meet on Syfy’s ‘Caprica’ will be born of Daniel Graystone’s tech, and go to war with the colonists some 10 years down the road. “It is in the middle of that conflict,” Moore says, that the Final Five would arrive on the scene.

'Caprica' actress rides with 'Sons of Anarchy'

Paula Malcolmson is going to roll with the "Sons of Anarchy" in the FX show's third season, according to a source close to the show.

Malcolmson, a.k.a. Amanda Graystone on "Caprica" and Trixie on "Deadwood," has signed on for an eight-episode arc in the new season of "Sons of Anarchy." She'll be playing a character named Maureen.

'Caprica's' Chances At Renewal? Strong

EXCLUSIVE: Airlock Alpha takes a journey into the decision-making realm of Syfy

Excerpt :
"This doesn't mean that "Caprica" is a shoo-in for renewal. But fans who would like to see a second season shouldn't feel too pessimistic.

And news should be announced later this month both on when "Caprica" will return, and if Syfy is ordering more episodes for a second season. So keep your fingers crossed."

I'm not familiar with American TV programming, so I didn't get what it meant when the article said
With Syfy still not officially announcing the mid-season return of "Caprica"When does 'mid-season' air anyway?

I hope they'll be picked up for another season as well. Correct me if I'm wrong, but they must have shot all the episodes for this season already, so we would probably not get a satisfying ending if they finish the series now. Even if they re-shoot parts of the finale.

Still unknown, I'm afraid. A while back they said "summer", which means July at the soonest. But the fact that they've announced the summer premiere dates for both Eureka and Warehouse 13 but not Caprica is less than promising

I'd tend to agree, but I also find that a little puzzling. One would think they'd put it alongside one of their summer ratings giants (Eureka/W13) to try to boost its lousy numbers.
