LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - The upcoming fourth season of Sci Fi Channel's "Battlestar Galactica" will be its final one after all.


After months of speculation, the show's producers are set to make the announcement at a press conference Friday.

Ending "Battlestar" with the upcoming 22-episode fourth season was a creative decision made by the hit show's executive producers Ronald Moore and David Eick.

"This show was always meant to have a beginning, a middle and, finally, an end," Eick and Moore said in a statement Thursday. "Over the course of the last year, the story and the characters have been moving strongly toward that end, and we've decided to listen to those internal voices and conclude the show on our own terms. And while we know our fans will be saddened to know the end is coming, they should brace themselves for a wild ride getting there -- we're going out with a bang."

The fourth and final season of "Galactica" will kick off in November with "Razor," an extended two-hour episode, with the rest of the season slated to run beginning in early 2008.

Sci Fi executive vp original programming Mark Stern said the channel's brass "respect the producers' decision to end the series."

For months, Sci Fi had dispelled rumors about "Battlestar" ending its run after the fourth season.

A couple of weeks ago, one of the show's stars, Edward James Olmos, was quoted as saying that the upcoming batch of episodes were definitely the last ones. Sci Fi issued a statement denying such a decision had been made.

Go out on top before it has a chance to stagnate. Type of show like BSG can only go on for so long anyways, it's got a finite shelf-life.

Something with a premise like Stargate can keep going and going. But BSG was limited in it's length by the basic premise of the show.

Similar to Lost, which also announced an end date, some shows naturally have end points.
Omusa - 66 Tauren Hunter - Illidan
Diafp - 17 Blood Elf Mage - Illidan
Seoman - 70 Dwarf Warrior - Anetheron
Seomusa - 26 Draenai Shaman - Anetheron

I see that point and agree with it. But still, after BSG and LOST are over, I'll have nuthin but The History Channel left to eyeball on TV. =/

Shame really :(.
But i have to say something though: Even BSG has potential for a long run, longer than even 6 season, its always up to the writers but usually the memorable series are the ones that burn brightly and die out quickly.
