The Sci Fi Channel has renewed Battlestar Galactica for a third season.  The new version of the 1978 TV science fiction classic is currently in the midst of its second season on the Sci Fi Channel.  The continuing success of the revived cable and satellite series bodes well for the merchandise it has spawned including trading cards (from Rittenhouse), the DVD of Season One (due out on September 20th from Universal), and action figures from Joyride Entertainment.


WizKids is planning to release a Battlestar Galactica Collectible Card Game in March 2006 as the airing of the second season concludes (see 'WizKids Plans Battlestar Galactica CCG').
