"The fourth season of the reimagined Battlestar Galactica TV series will be the last. An insider says the Galactica's crew do find Earth, but it will be the Earth of the 22nd century, rather than that of the present.
On the less-than-official news-front, our insider on the Battlestar Galactica TV show, The Dirty Daggit, told SFcrowsnest.com that the back-end of its last series will be loaded with twists and turns and a number of surprises, and said that the last fleet of humanity will reach Earth, but unlike the final series of the old Galactica, it won't be the Earth of the present, it will be the Earth of the future.

As far as the official uber exciting wind-up of the fourth season goes, BG's executive producers Ronald Moore and David Eick officially told SFcrowsnest.com last year that season four of Battlestar Galactica will be its last. They will use the 22-episode season, currently in production, to draw the tale 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," Eick and Moore told the Nest in 2007.
"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."Battlestar Galactica is from NBC Universal Television Studio and is executive produced by Ronald D Moore and David Eick. Its cast is led by Edward 'Miami Vice' and 'Bladerunner' James Olmos, Mary McDonnell (presidential), Katee Sackhoff (sweet), Jamie Bamber (cute), James Callis, Tricia 'Xena' Helfer, not to mention Grace Park."
