Its been confirmed by SyFy Portal that the upcoming final season of “Battlestar Galactica” will be split in half, so now the big question is how long will the break in-between be.
Producer David Weddle says “We were told that SciFi was thinking about splitting the final season, but we do not know how long the gap in that split will be…As far as I know, SciFi has not decided yet. The SciFi Channel executives are the only ones who will be able to answer that question, once they’ve arrived at a decision.”
Last weekend, actor Jamie Bamber said that SciFi Channel was looking to put as much as a year between the mid-season finale and the mid-season premiere. Whatever the case, shooting is scheduled to wrap next March on the series.
Weddle also confirms that the writing staff just spent three days in Lake Tahoe mapping out the final episodes of the show – “We now know how it will end and what each major character’s journey will be, though the specifics may go through many changes between now and the conclusion of shooting.”
The writing staff actually recorded a podcast on the final night at the cabin talking about writing for the show which should be released online or on DVDs. The fourth season begins airing in January 2008.
