Executive producers Ronald D. Moore and David Eick have decided that season 4 of "Battlestar Galactica," SCI FI Channel's Peabody Award-winning original series, will be its last. They will use the 22-episode season, currently in production, to draw the saga of humanity's struggle for survival to a close.

"This show was always meant to have a beginning, a middle and finally, an end. Over the course of the last year, the story and the characters have been moving strongly toward that end and we've decided to listen to those internal voices and conclude the show on our own terms," stated Eick and Moore. "On a personal level, it's been a creative privilege and an honor for all of us who work on the show and we know we'll be lucky to ever see its like again. And while we know our fans will be saddened to know the end is coming, they should brace themselves for a wild ride getting there we're going out with a bang."

"We respect the producers' decision to end the series and are proud to have been the home of this groundbreaking show. We have always known that Ron and David had a plan for 'Galactica' and trust that fans can look forward to a truly amazing final season," stated Mark Stern, Executive Vice President of Original Programming, SCI FI.

Production on the final 22 hours of season 4 is currently underway in Vancouver. An extended two-hour episode, "Razor," will premiere in November 2007, setting the stage for the rest of the season to commence in 2008.

"Battlestar Galactica" is from NBC Universal Television Studio and is executive produced by Ronald D. Moore and David Eick. Its stellar cast is led by Edward James Olmos, Mary McDonnell, Katee Sackhoff, Jamie Bamber, James Callis, Tricia Helfer and Grace Park.

That's too bad, but understandable. After this season's cliff-hanger, it's hard to see how much longer they could have dragged out the inevitable ending.
