BREAKING: Syfy Cancels Caprica

While this may be disappointing news, it isn’t too surprising. Despite the superb acting and cleverly written scripts, Caprica has had a hard time finding an audience. Taking such a long break in the middle of the first season probably didn’t help a whole lot, but the bottom line is the audience just wasn’t there. It happens and should not be taken as a lack of quality on the part of Caprica. It just wasn’t its time, apparently. Here are the details from Syfy:

The remaining first run episodes of Caprica – airing Tuesdays at 10/9c – will be removed from the schedule as of next Tuesday, November 2. These final five episodes of the season will be re-scheduled to air at a to be announced time in the first quarter of 2011, and will conclude the run of the series.

“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, Executive Vice President of Original Programming, Syfy and Co-Head of Content for Universal Cable Productions. “Unfortunately, despite its obvious quality, Caprica has not been able to build the audience necessary to justify a second season.”

‘Caprica’ Previews For Friday, March 5th

Courtesy of Syfy, we present you with two videos and some images from Friday’s all-new episode of Caprica. “Know Thy Enemy” sees the addition of James Marsters to the cast.

Rival industrialist Tomas Vergis arrives on Caprica demanding a meeting with Daniel Graystone (Eric Stoltz), threatening to reveal proof that Daniel stole the chip that is key to the U-87 Cylon and Graystone’s military contract. Vergis whirls up a publicity storm that steals the heart of the Caprican public, and surprisingly serves up a friendly offer to Daniel that could save Graystone Industries. But there’s a catch to his proposal that could haunt Daniel for years to come.

Sister Clarice (Polly Walker), panicked that off-world STO leadership has been backing a rogue named Barnabas Greeley (James Marsters), steps up her plans to acquire Zoe Graystone’s (Alessandra Torresani) avatar program…and may find her answer through befriending Amanda Graystone (Paula Malcomson). Meanwhile, wanting to fulfill her own promise to Zoe, Lacy Rand (Magda Apanowicz) goes with Keon (Liam Sproule) to meet the enigmatic Barnabas, opening herself up to a new world of danger.

After the revelation that the avatar of his daughter Tamara (Genevieve Buechner) is still lost in V-World, Joseph Adama (Esai Morales) starts his quest to find her in a virtual world he knows nothing about.
