Sam Esmail's Battlestar Galactica will NOT be a reboot

Following the news earlier today that a new take on Battlestar Galactica would help launch NBC's new streaming network, the new show runner Sam Esmail has taken to Twitter to share a little bit on his plans for the new series.

While it's widely being reported as a reboot Esmail is at pains to stress that he isn't attempting to tell the same story that has been now covered twice and instead will be creating something new within the mythology of the Ron Moore's most recent series.

While we're never adverse to new Battlestar Galactica the promise of something new is even more exciting to us; especially since the last spin-off - Caprica - was cancelled just as it started developing into something really interesting.

We need your help

Running a website like The Digital Fix - especially one with over 20 years of content and an active community - costs lots of money and we need your help.

You can help us by using the links on The Digital Fix to buy your films, games and music and we ask that you try to avoid blocking our ads if you can. You can also help directly for just a few pennies per day via our Patreon - and you can even pay to have ads removed from the site entirely.
