Announced on the 41st anniversary of the 1978 Battlestar Galactica series, this new series is inspired by the Ronald D. Moore-lead Re-imagined Series, but will inhabit its own continuity. Meaning, of course, that it is another re-imagined version of the Battlestar Galactica story and concepts. Although Esmail seems to have muddled the point with his tweet, claiming that "it will NOT be a remake of the amazing series by @RonDMoore launched because... why mess with perfection? Instead, we’ll explore a new story within the mythology while staying true to the spirit of Battlestar. So say we all!"
Executive produced by Sam Esmail under an overall deal with Universal Content Productions that itself was renewed February 2019, this series will leverage the Battlestar brand for NBC's own specialty streaming service called Peacock.
Additional details on development, plot, casting, and airdate were not yet available as the series is considered in-development as of 17 September 2019.
