From the “don’t believe what you read on blogs” files:
SciFi channel has confirmed that Season 5 of Battlestar Galactica will air in January of 2009 and not April of 2009.
Several blogs (not this one) claimed that Sci Fi Channel was going to frak over the fans and push back the final season.
The reports are erroneous, the channel confirmed to SCI FI Wire. “It is still slated to return January 2009,” a spokesman for the channel said.
**UPDATE** Technically speaking the January start is being called Season 4 by NBC Universal – i expect when they do their box sets they’ll call it 4.5. But it’s really Season 5. How do you have a show in the same season more than 8 months apart? that’s nuts it’s season 5 and Sci Fi is just playing around with numbers for some unknown reason.
**if you haven’t seen the new episodes you can pick them up on Amazon now too Battlestar Galactica season 5 aka season 4.5
