A headsup that Caprica
has gone on hiatus on M-Net Action
, until 2011. The final episode of the year aired last Tuesday,10 August at 18h00 (and in the repeat timeslots).
Following the tradition of the show's sister series Battlestar Galactica
, the season is split into two years. Nine episodes have been made and broadcast so far: another nine are in production and will air next year.
Part 2 premieres in the US in early January 2011. No premiere date has been confirmed for South Africa yet - we'll keep you scooped as soon as it is.
In the meantime, a new series called Defying Gravity takes over the Action timeslot, starting tonight (17 August) at 18h00. More about it:
The crew on the ship Antares, facing their first crisis.
Set in the year 2052, against the background of a solar system, the series is a space thriller that follows eight astronauts from five countries (four women and four men) who undertake a mysterious six-year international space mission covering eight billion miles. Fast facts:
When the series creator James Parriott pitched the idea to networks in the US he described the show as: "Grey's Anatomy in space." (which worries us a lot)
The show was made in 2009 and consists of one season. It didn't receive a second season. Season 1 has 13 episodes.
