Battlestar Galactica prequel Caprica has been cancelled by the US Syfy network.
The news follows speculation about whether the low-rating series would be renewed or not.
“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, EVP of Original Programming at Syfy.
“Unfortunately, despite its obvious quality, Caprica has not been able to build the audience necessary to justify a second season.”
Unaired episodes of the drama about the Adama and Graystone families will be rescheduled by Syfy next year.
In the last week Syfy did announce a new Battlestar prequel telemovie Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome, which centres on a young William Adama.
Caprica is currently airing in Australia on 7mate on Thursday night where it remains in schedule.
