'It Has To Be Better': 'Battlestar Galactica's' Callum Keith Rennie Explains Why He Wants Peacock's Revival To Outdo His Critically-Acclaimed Show

  • 2 months ago
For many years now, there have been two attempts to revive the "Battlestar Galactica" franchise. The first has been through a movie that, as of 2020, is set to be written by Simon Kinberg, who will also co-produce with Dylan Clark. The second is through a Peacock subscription-exclusive TV show that will connect to the reimagined series that ran from 2004-2009. Its lineup of characters included Callum Keith Rennie’s Number Two-model Cylon, better known as Leoben Conoy, and while speaking with CinemaBlend, the actor explained why he wants this upcoming revival to outdo even the critically-acclaimed show he participated in.

In addition to Rennie comparing his time on "Battlestar Galactica" to his latest gig on "Star Trek: Discovery" Season 5 (which is now streaming to Paramount+ subscribers) playing Rayner, the new first officer on the title ship, he also told me the following when I asked him for his thoughts on Peacock’s "Battlestar" revival, namely if he welcome that specific continuity being expanded or if it would be better off left alone.
