As far as I can tell the webisodes are it for B+C. The show has been in development hell for the longest time, with the final decision to release what they had as shorts on the net. No new shows in '13. Although they had tweeted at one point that there was a possibility that if it took the net by storm they would reassess the situation, I I took that to mean "never say never", and as far as I can see there's not been any word on it since then.
I loved it though, and as far as I'm concerned I'd watch a regular series every week. Not enough sci-fi on these days! Definitely not enough "outer space" sci-fi.
The culmination of Kyle honing his effects skills is a 90-minute pilot for a Galactica spin-off entitled Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome. Sadly, it may never actually be seen as it currently resides in the network executive "We Don't Know What the F### to Do With It" zone at the SyFy channel. The reason? " Budgetary issues. Kyle disagrees. "The show was monstrously affordable considering what you were getting," he says. "It was like 7.5 million dollars which is the Craft Service budget on a Transformers movie!" Without the network's knowledge a highly charged minute and a half long unofficial trailer (called a 'sizzle reel') hit the web and instantly went mega-viral. It's frakkin' awesome. "It's spaceships and sh## blowing up," says Toucher. "It's a sci-fi-space-opera-hardware-action show. We've got enough teen vampires and people talking about their problems."
