Asta 2

It's Nearly Official

I was doing my daily scan of the SciFi Forum and a poster by the name Sephiroth144 posted that Season 4 is a go. Apparently he spoke with Ron and David at the WGA awards last night and they told him the show was being renewed. To further confirm this news Terry Moore on Page 5 of the thread had this to say:

Everyone who likes the show, should be very happy. All is well. No one has been reprimanded or chastised, no budgets have been cut, no instructions have been given to do or change anything, there are no caveats or exclusion clauses, pick your metaphor. Everyone is happy, the production, the studio, the network.

Sure, I suppose SciFi could change their mind in the next few days, but I'd say it's doubtful at this point.

Sadly not the one I'd like it to be. But it is someone employed by the show.
Hey, it's still cool you have a source and that you were willing to verify here. :)
Well leaking good news isn't quite the same a leaking a major!character!death! Lol. :)

I've been so angsty over renewal, I just didn't want anyone else to worry about it anymore either.

Apparently there's a possibility for more than 13, though 13 is all they've picked up for now.
I was pretty tense about renewal, but recently there were more and more indicators that there would be a renewal. The improved ratings, the Direct TV deal, Jamie's radio interview all led me to believe the post on the SciFi forum was true. Of course, poor Sci-Fi has had it's thunder stolen. ;)
No way would SciFi and NBC/Universal pass up the ongoing riches that they can rake in from syndication, and syndication packages typically require at least four seasons worth of episodes. Season 5 may be iffy at this point, but the studios stand to make much more money with a fourth season, regardless of the ratings, than they could make by calling it quits after season 3. So long as it's financially advantageous to make more episodes, they will. It's all about the $$$$
