Just a few days after giving the green light to a new BSG prequel “Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome,” dealing with the Cylon Wars, Syfy has confirmed the cancellation of their spin-off Caprica. With five unaired episodes left in the current 13-episode season airing on the channel, the network announced that the remaining broadcasts will be delayed and air sometime in early 2011.

Here’s what the network had to say about Caprica getting the axe.

“We appreciate all the support that fans have shown for ‘Caprica’ and are very proud of the producers, cast, writers and the rest of the amazing team that has been committed to this fine series,” said Mark Stern, Executive Vice President of Original Programming, Syfy and Co-Head of Content for Universal Cable Productions. “Unfortunately, despite its obvious quality, ‘Caprica’ has not been able to build the audience necessary to justify a second season.”
