Reports are starting to spread via the BATTLESTAR GALACTICA
online community that Sci Fi has given an official greenlight to the proposed GALACTICA
TV series late yesterday afternoon. The message forum of Galactica 2003.net has a thread
actor Aaron Douglas has stated that the network has ordered 13 episodes of the new series. Douglas played Chief Petty Officer Tyrol in the mini-series, and according to his post, his contract calls for his character to appear in all 13 episodes.
"Yes it is true," writes Douglas in his posting on the website. "They have ordered 13 episodes and it truly went down to the wire."
According to Douglas he only learned of the go-ahead late in the afternoon of January 30 with literally minutes left until the options holding the actors in place ran out.
Douglas also added that he heard from actress Grace Park, who played Boomer in the mini-series, also stating that her option had been exercised and the series was happening.
No official word from Sci Fi Channel about a greenlight of the new GALACTICA
TV series has been heard as of yet, but if the messages are indeed true, it will likely be announced after the weekend is over. There has been no comment from series creator/showrunner Ronald D. Moore about this latest development, but if Sci Fi just gave a go-ahead Friday evening, maybe he's out celebrating.
We'll keep you appraised when more news develops.
