Syfy cancels Battlestar Galactica prequel Caprica

The episodes are slated to air back-to-back on Tuesday, Jan. 4, starting at 6/5c.

Syfy canceled Caprica last month due to low ratings for the second half of its first season.

The Battlestar Galactica prequel takes place before the first Cylon wars — and 58 years before the events of Battlestar Galactica and follows Joseph Adama (Esai Morales) and Daniel Graystone (Eric Stolz) through the creation of the robotic Cylons, who would later rebel against their masters for their enslavement.
