It's been confirmed, sadly:
Although it's still up in the air as to whether or not the season'll get split in two:
| [...] Moore’s episode, however, won’t air until after the show takes a midseason break and will kick off the remaining episodes in Battlestar's four-season run. Sci-Fi Channel executives have not yet determined whether the final season will all air next year, or be spread over 2008 and 2009. |
"I’d probably prefer to see the entire thing air next year to maintain the momentum, to build excitement as it pushes to the end," Moore said, "not to mention it means less chance of spoilers getting out."
Although this has
inspired one of the funniest "Talk Back" postings I've read in weeks over at AICN:
| Done. Over it. Be gone. |
Delay it forever, Sci-Fi/Moore/Eick. I don't care anymore. Totally over this show. I am/was a big fan, watched every episode, and stood by during every bloated hiatus. Balking until January was bullshit in the first place. Splitting the season up and showing the conclusion in '09 was almost the breaking point. This posturing by the powers-that-be to squeeze every goddam ounce of revenue out of this franchise is it. Don't care any more. Sci-Fi can cut the finale in to 60 one-minute segments showing once a year for the next sixty years. I hope Galactica finds Earth in the finale, and when they switch on their little radio, a faint voice from the blue planet below tells them to go fuck themselves.
