The final set of BSG webisodes can be found here. They began screening online December 12, 2008.
Full credits for the webisodes are here; the SciFi.com page with the 'sodes also contains "Enhanced" versions with commentary by Jane Espenson.
The American (Region 1) DVD of season 4.0 came out on January 6, 2009.
See here and here for tons of details.
A catch-up special called "BSG: The Top Ten Things You Need To Know" aired on Sci Fi Channel January 11th.
The whole special is now up on Hulu and SciFi.
Season 4.5 began on The SciFi Channel on January 16th.
If you take the most reliable list of 4.5 episode titles (from Mark Verheiden) and match it up with the dates from SciFi Channel, this is what you get:
413: Sometimes a Great Notion
414: A Disquiet Follows My Soul
415: The Oath
416: Blood on the Scales
417: No Exit
419: Someone to Watch Over Me
420: Islanded In A Stream Of Stars
421: Daybreak 1
422: Daybreak 2
423: Daybreak 3
Here's a list of the writers and directors of all remaining episodes.
It was recently announced that the season finale is definitely going to be three hours long (Daybreak Parts 1-3); but the air dates of those eps remain TBD. Ron Moore has said in interviews that, if his cut of the series finale goes too long for broadcast, the longer version (along with Moore’s cut of his directorial debut, “A Disquiet Follows My Soul”) will end up on the Region 1 DVD release. Whatever, RDM, do what you gotta do…just give us those yummy DVD extras.
After 4.5 airs, there will be a 2-hour TV movie to look forward to.
SciFi has announced the film, BATTLESTAR GALACTICA: THE PLAN, will air sometime in late 2009. The film is shot and as of winter 2009 is currently in post-production.
CAPRICA has a 20 episode series order, and will premiere in 2010.
While it's tough to consider how long we have to wait to see it, the news is very good for CAPRICA, the BSG prequel series that takes place 50 years prior to the events of BSG. Sci Fi has greenlit the show, production will begin in mid-2009, and as of now an early 2010 broadcast is planned. You can get all the latest info on the series by rummaging through our posts.
Universal is releasing the uncut, unrated pilot telefilm for CAPRICA on DVD and digital download on April 21, 2009.
The hour and a half long telefilm, a backdoor pilot for the now-greenlit series, is coming out on DVD with several cool extra features. Here is the official site for the DVD release.
Lots to look forward to...
