Syfy won't pick up season 2 of Caprica

Syfy announced it won't be picking up a second season of Caprica, the TV prequel that told how the Cylons of the reimagined Battlestar Galactica were born, and that the final five episodes of the series have been rescheduled for 2011.

Syfy released the following statement yesterday:

The remaining first run episodes of Caprica—airing Tuesdays at 10/9c—will be removed from the schedule as of next Tuesday, November 2. These final five episodes of the season will be re-scheduled to air at a to be announced time in the first quarter of 2011, and will conclude the run of the series.

"We appreciate all the support that fans have shown for Caprica and are very proud of the producers, cast, writers and the rest of the amazing team that has been committed to this fine series," said Mark Stern, Executive Vice President of Original Programming, Syfy and Co-Head of Content for Universal Cable Productions. "Unfortunately, despite its obvious quality, Caprica has not been able to build the audience necessary to justify a second season."
