The most highly anticipated series of the Emmy® and Peabody Award-winning series returns for the second part of the forth and final season. BATTLESTAR GALACTICA, Tuesdays from 20th January at 9pm exclusively on Sky1 and Sky1 HD.
An enthralling mid-season finale saw the race to find Earth reach a shattering climax when the humans and Cylons simultaneously jumped into the planet’s atmosphere in search of a brave new world, only to discover a post-apocalyptic wilderness. Writers Bradley Thompson and David Weddle were hailed heroes by fans who were left reeling by this leftfield turn of events. Now, after an excruciating six-month hiatus, BATTLESTAR fans are preparing for the final slice of superior sci-fi drama, and with chaos reigning among the Colonial Fleet and the Cylons.

Devotees of the critically acclaimed drama have been eagerly awaiting answers to some of the series’ longest-running and biggest questions: the identity of the fifth Cylon, how will the prophecy about Starbuck unfold and what are Six (Tricia Helfer) and Dr Baltar (James Callis) really up to? The US rumour mill has speculated that Lee Adama (Jamie Bamber) will play a central role in the future of the colony, while Admiral Adama (Edward James Almos) and President Roslin’s (Mary McDonnell) relationship develops. BATTLESTAR’s producers have hinted at a feature-length finale and possible spin-off TV movie but for now, it’s a case of waiting and watching.

Jamie Bamber said: ‘I hope that Battlestar lives on as a really good old-fashioned story that TV had the balls to tell over 70 episodes and it’ll be enjoyed by future generations because it is complete, done and finished.’

The final series of BATTLESTAR GALACTICA, exclusively on Sky1 and Sky1 HDTuesdays from 20th January at 9pm.
