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.
