This just in from Syfy (although I first spotted the news via a tweet by Rob Owen).
It’s all over for Syfy’s low-rated Caprica.
Syfy is taking the show off the schedule effective immediately. The five remaining episodes will air sometime in early 2011. Here’s the full press release.

RE: Syfy Scheduling Change – Revision Effective Today
Please note the following change to Syfy’s broadcast schedule:
The remaining first run episodes of Caprica – airing Tuesdays at 10/9c – will be removed from the schedule as of next Tuesday, November 2. These final five episodes of the season will be re-scheduled to air at a to be announced time in the first quarter of 2011, and will conclude the run of the series.
“We appreciate all the support that fans have shown for ‘Caprica’ and are very proud of the producers, cast, writers and the rest of the amazing team that has been committed to this fine series,“ said Mark Stern, Executive Vice President of Original Programming, Syfy and Co-Head of Content for Universal Cable Productions. “Unfortunately, despite its obvious quality, ‘Caprica’ has not been able to build the audience necessary to justify a second season.”
