SCI FI Channel and its parent network, NBC, put to rest fan rumors that SCI FI’s original series Battlestar Galactica will make the move to NBC. “There is no truth to this rumor,” a SCI FI spokesperson told SCI FI Wire.
The rumor has appeared on fans sites such as the Battlestar Galactica Site and been picked up by other entertainment news sites. “Word has begun to circulate that NBC’s acquisition of Battlestar Galactica is in the ‘waiting-for-the-ink-to-dry’ phase at this moment, and an official announcement could be days away,” the Battlestar Galactica Site said.
Battlestar Galactica returned for its third season on SCI FI on Oct. 6 and airs Fridays at 9 p.m. ET/PT. It was the number-one cable show in its timeslot for the night.
