Season 4 to be 22 Episodes

TV Week has announced that the episode order for Season 4 has been increased to 22 episodes. What this means for the series is not yet known, although it's been rumored that this could mean the end for the series, according to a report from SyFyPortal several weeks ago.

Sci Fi Extends 'Battlestar'
By James Hibberd
Sci Fi Channel has increased its fourth season order of "Battlestar Galactica" to 22 episodes.

The order will include a special two-hour "Battlestar" event to air during the fourth quarter of 2007 on Sci Fi, and will also be released on DVD.

Previously, the network announced a reduced "Battlestar" season order of 13 episodes rather than 22. Combined with a slight ratings erosion during the show's current third season, fans worried Sci Fi might cancel the Peabody Award-winning show.

The fourth season will premiere in early 2008. "Battlestar" is executive produced by Ronald D. Moore and David Eick.

Awesome, that follows on from Seasons 2 and 3. Although I have read some concerns this will be last season. Hopefully not as this is an awesome show.
