U.S.A. gets Season Two first
TUESDAY - MAY 17, 2005
The U.S. SCI FI Channel will have the world premiere of Battlestar Galactica's second season when it kicks of 20 new episodes on July 15. According to a report at the BBC's Cult Television site, the U.K. network Sky One won't begin airing the new season until October.The first, 13-episode season of the hit new series aired first in the United Kingdom, beginning last fall. SCI FI waited until January to premiere the series, which has proved a ratings winner on both sides of the Atlantic.Sky will air the new season of Galactica alongside the ninth season of Stargate SG-1 and the second season of Stargate Atlantis. Because SCI FI traditionally takes a rerun break from September to January, it is likely that Sky will pass the U.S. cable network and air the second half of the season first.
