Torchwood Season Four Scoop!

Torchwood creator and executive producer Russell T. Davies told the British press Friday that the fourth season of the sci-fi show is ready and waiting, depending on how the show's third mini-season ("Children of Earth") performs.

During a screening of the third series' premiere episode ("Day One"), Davies said he knows where he wants to go in Torchwood's next run. That's good news for fans, as there's every reason to expect that "Children of Earth" will do well both in the U.K. and in the U.S. -- where it out-rates the show that inspired it (Doctor Who) on BBC America.

Davies, the former executive producer of Who, also gave Torchwood fans reason to rejoice when he said he'd be willing to keep knocking the show out for 10 years if the viewers stay tuned. No word if show stars like John Barrowman and Eve Myles would be willing to stay on board into their middle age.

The third season of Torchwood consists of only five one-hour episodes, set to run on consecutive nights in the U.K.. BBC America will follow the same schedule, making the broadcasts an event mini-series and airing the segments just hours after their U.K. premiere.

"Children of Earth" will start airing in on BBC America July 20h. The DVD/Blu-Ray release arrives July 27th.
