The folks over at SyFyPortal report that hair-iffic (I’m jealous) Ron Moore, creator of the amazing Battlestar Galactica remake on The Sci-Fi Channel has won over the executives at NBC Universal.
He’s apparently been signed to create programming for NBC through 2009 including the final season of Battlestar Galactica which has enjoyed a growing (and well-earned) popularity over it’s three year run. Variety reports that it’s a seven figure deal.
Of course, this opens the possibility of a prequel, fifth season or an extended finale for the program, though Moore has expressed an interest in moving on to other genres such as comedy.
The original Dirk Benedict/Richard Hatch space cowboy buddy series only ran one year unless you count Battlestar 1980 and we don’t count that, do we?
For fans of the new Battlestar Galactica series, this could be welcome news and no surprise as yet another great science fiction TV series slips from the Sci-Fi Channel‘s roster.
