The final five episodes of the cancelled Galactica prequel Caprica will air in a 5-hour block on the Syfy network on January 4th from 6pm to 11pm (ET, PT).  The last five episodes of the series, “Blowback,” “The Dirteaters,” “The Heavens Will Rise,” “Here Be Dragons,” and “Apotheosis” will be released on the Caprica: Season 1.5 DVD box set, which is due to be released on December 21st (see “Caprica Ends on DVD First”).


A campaign to save Caprica, which culminated, according to the L.A. Times, in fans sending 2,880 apples to NBC Universal’s head Steve Burke, has so far failed to save the series (though the fruit was donated to City Harvest), but the Syfy network has ordered the pilot for a third Galactica series, Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome (see “New Galactica Pilot Greenlit”).
