The Battlestar Galactica spinoff Caprica has been getting weak ratings and only average reviews, but Syfy is anxious to keep expanding its Galactica francise.  In an interview with THR, Syfy’s Executive VP of Development Mark Stern indicated that Caprica would receive a second season and that the network was also trying to develop a second Galactica spinoff.  The exact nature of the spinoff has not yet been determined, but it would:

“mark a return to the franchise’s space-opera roots.”

Galactica Executive Producer Ronald Moore is working with Syfy on developing the new series, which may have a non-traditional format.  More as we hear it.
