Caprica: Why the Battlestar Galactica Prequel Ended After 1 Season

The 2004 remake of the 1978 classic Battlestar Galactica was a critically acclaimed series that ran for four seasons on the Sci-Fi channel, pulling in 19 Emmy nominations throughout its run and around 2.8 million views per episode in Season 1 alone. With a smash hit on its hands, the network greenlit the production of Caprica, a prequel spinoff series set 58 years before the Cylon‘s devastating attacks on the Twelve Colonies.

However, while the series pilot aired on October 5, 2010, the show didn’t even last the entire month, as Sci-Fi canceled it on October 27, not even bothering to air the final five episodes until the following year. So, with an interesting premise that was connected to a franchise beloved by many, let’s look at why Sci-Fi canceled Caprica.
