SyFy's 'Caprica' Buys Time
According to Fancast.com, NBC Universal has worked out an extention deal with the actors on CAPRICA, prolonging their options. Set to expire this month, the contracts have been extended until November, in the hopes that SyFy will renew the BATTLESTAR GALACTIC spin-off for another season.
This gives the studio and fans some breathing room, although the cable channel recently revealed a new slate of planned series that might not leave room and budget for CAPRICA to return.
The science fiction network has been slow to renew before, supposedly putting off deciding to whether to renew the fantasy-detective series THE DRESDEN FILES for a second season until it became clear that star Paul Blackthorne had signed for another series, making continuing the popular show impossible.
