Syfy cancels Caprica

The critically acclaimed, but very, very low-rated, sci-fi drama series Caprica has been canceled by Syfy, the network announced today. Five original episodes remain to be aired but they’ll be pulled from the schedule effective immediately. The network says they plan to run the rest of the episodes in the first quarter of 2011:

“We appreciate all the support that fans have shown for ‘Caprica’ and are very proud of the producers, cast, writers and the rest of the amazing team that has been committed to this fine series,” said Mark Stern, Executive Vice President of Original Programming, Syfy and Co-Head of Content for Universal Cable Productions. “Unfortunately, despite its obvious quality, ‘Caprica’ has not been able to build the audience necessary to justify a second season.”

While fans of the show will be — understandably — disappointed at this news, Syfy really had no choice. Through last Tuesday (10/19) the series’ first season was averaging a dismal 1.10M viewers and a 0.4/1 A18-49 rating/share. Even worse, the most-recent episode drew a paltry — series-low — 718,000 viewers with 0.3/1 A18-49 rating/share.

The full press release follows after the jump.

Caprica return on Syfy shifts to October 5, 2010; Sanctury staying put on Friday’s

Syfy is pushing up the midseason premiere of Caprica season one from January 2011 to October 5, 2010:

The highly anticipated return of Syfy’s critically-acclaimed series Caprica will come even sooner than anticipated. The second half of season one will now premiere on Tuesday, October 5, 2010 at 10:00PM ET/PT, the channel announced today. Fans will no longer have to wait until January to watch the series exciting kick-off, as the citizens of Caprica deal with the chaotic aftermath of the mid-season finale’s harrowing events.

The shift means that Sanctuary, which was originally slated to move to Tuesday night at 10:00 p.m., will stay put on Friday at 10:00 p.m. Sanctury will now premiere on October 15.

The full press release is included after the jump.

Caprica season 1.5 trailer

New episodes of Caprica aren’t scheduled to air on Syfy until January 2011, but maybe this new season 1.5 trailer will tide you over until then. Or not. Seriously Syfy? You’re making fans wait 10 months between half-seasons for new episodes? That’s very, very weak. Anyways, check out the trailer after the jump.

Caprica season 1.5 premieres on Syfy January 11, 2011.

The network recently announced that the back-half of season one — 10 episodes remain to be aired — will premiere next January. Airlock Alpha adds that the second […]

Comic-Con 2010: Ron Moore thinks Caprica will get a second season

Caprica won’t even begin to air its back-half of season one episodes until this January, but that didn’t stop co-creator Ronald D. Moore from telling a Comic-Con audience that he “[believes] it’s coming back, adding,  “I firmly believe that we’re going to get a second season.”

Caprica had a horrible first season in terms […]

Syfy announces January 2011 return for Caprica

The second half of Caprica‘s first season won’t premiere on Syfy until January 2011, an out of the ordinary 10 months after the midseason finale aired on the network this past March.

In season 1.5, the once idyllic world of Caprica – as well as life across the colonies – falls prey to an explosive chain reaction of consequences set off by the characters’ many questionable actions in the season’s first half. Tensions rise, power shifts and the line between reality and the virtual world becomes increasingly blurred as everyone struggles to learn – and conquer – the stakes in this volatile setting. As the season races towards its stunning conclusion, events of each episode lay the framework for the inevitable (and brutal) clash between the newly-created Cylon race and their human creators.

Syfy has done this very often with their programming, specifically “Battlestar Galactica”. It seems as if the network is willing to make their fans wait extended periods of time just so they can extend the life of an under-performing — but critically well-liked — program .
