Sci-Fi Wire has a report from Dan Angel and Billy Brown, who will be running the new Galactica show, that we will be reviving some familiar characters – but are not saying who just yet, since things are still in development.

In the strange world of television as it now exists, keeping track of when television shows start their seasons is getting harder and harder. Witness Stargate SG-1 – Season 5 starts this Friday (6/29) at 10:00pm EDT with “Enemies”.

Update 6/29: Sci-Fi Wire has a piece about the 5th season from producer Brad Wright. Things to look forward to – a 100th episode that is in a sense a self-parody of the series, and a two parter where all the Goa’uld System Lords get together against SG-1…

How, since Boone was killed off when Kilner left at the end of the first season? Who knows, but this is Sci Fi…
