[photopress:battlestar_galactica_20070118014017592.jpg,full,left]Fans of Battlestar Galactica, we have good news for you.

As the incredibly popular and well-written show enters its final season, many fans are saddened, for they’ve come to love the show for many reasons. But fear not, gentle fanbois, for its been confirmed that a prequel series is in the works, called Caprica. It apparently takes place 50 years in before the events of Battlestar Galactica.

No word yet on what, like, happens during this time period, but it’s very encouraging that the show did well enough to warrant a prequel series. Kudos.
