So after the huge success of Battlestar Galactica on Syfy the creators wanted to craft some spin-offs/sequels. One of those sequels, Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome, seemed to have potential and the other one, titled Caprica seemed, to have less. Well to be honest both series could have been great, but Caprica fizzled in the ratings and creatively, so the future of Blood and Chrome was bleak. For a while it looked like it was still coming to the Syfy network then everything went all hush hush when it was canned.
Now Blood and Chrome is finally out online and you can watch the first two episodes are right here below!
This is one of those surreal moments in life, the likes of which no geek wants to experience.
While writing up a short piece for the the awesome first trailer for Syfy’s Battlestar Galactica prequel, Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome, I went to find out when this exciting new series was going to finally premiere. The answer I found was: never. It’s being reported that Syfy has decided NOT to move forward with the show after years of development.
As it turns out, the “trailer” was just a demo reel set to Trent Reznor and Karen O’s “Immigrant Song” cover from The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo that was shown at WonderCon. Syfy apparently thought it over for a long time, but ultimately decided it was not in their best interest (who cares what the fans want, right?) to continue forward with the property as a series. This might not, however, mean that we’ll never see Blood & Chrome.
You can read why there’s still some hope to see this and check out the fast-paced first “trailer” by clicking on over to the other side now.
