Caprica returns in January 2011, new trailer coming this week

Syfy announced it's going to air the second half of Caprica's first season starting in January 2011, with the exact date still TBA. The network also said a new trailer for the show will be unveiled at the Carprica Comic-Con panel on July 23 before it shows up on the Xbox Live and other platforms.

There are more details in the official press release, which is below:

New York, New York - July 21, 2010 - Syfy has announced the highly-anticipated return of critically-acclaimed series Caprica. The second half of season one premieres in January 2011 (date TBA), and kicks off with a thrilling pace as the citizens of Caprica deal with the chaotic aftermath of the mid-season finale's harrowing events.

In season 1.5, the once idyllic world of Caprica - as well as life across the colonies - falls prey to an explosive chain reaction of consequences set off by the characters' many questionable actions in the season's first half. Tensions rise, power shifts and the line between reality and the virtual world becomes increasingly blurred as everyone struggles to learn - and conquer - the stakes in this volatile setting. As the season races towards its stunning conclusion, events of each episode lay the framework for the inevitable (and brutal) clash between the newly-created Cylon race and their human creators.

An all-new trailer for season 1.5 will premiere at Caprica's Comic-Con panel on July 23, and before landing on Syfy.com, it will be available exclusively on Microsoft's Zune Marketplace on Xbox LIVE and Windows PCs through the Zune PC software available for free at www.zune.net. (July 26).

Caprica stars Eric Stoltz (Daniel Graystone), Paula Malcomson (Amanda Graystone), Esai Morales (Joseph Adama), Polly Walker (Sister Clarice Willow), Alessandra Torresani (Zoe Graystone), Magda Apanowicz (Lacy) and Sasha Roiz (Sam Adama).

Caprica is a prequel to the award-winning series Battlestar Galactica. The series is from Universal Cable Productions, and is executive produced by Ronald D. Moore and David Eick. Jonas Pate serves as co-executive producer and director.
