Battlestar Galactica final season expands

The Chicago Tribune Reports that the final portion of Battlestar Galactica will likely air in the first quarter of 2009 and that the final episode will be expanded to three hours. Additionally, it seems that at least one more Battlestar Galactica movie (similar to BSG: RAZOR) will be produced. It is unfortunate that such an acclaimed series has been plagued with these annoying mid-season breaks.

As “Battlestar Galactica” gets ready to air its mid-season finale on Friday, there are two bits of good news to share regarding the show.
According to well-informed sources, it’s almost certain that at least one “Battlestar Galactica” TV movie will be made this year.
Here’s even better news: The last-ever episode of “Battlestar” will run three hours, which means that final part of Season 4 will be 11 hours long.
You heard that right: The last leg of the show’s final season will expand to 11 hours, instead of the originally planned 10 hours.
