Ronald Moore confirmed that the end is in sight for the ragtag fugitive fleet, and it is after season 4.
We thought, if we don’t start paying this off and really revealing those secrets, we’ll be moving in the wrong direction and get to a place where it felt like we were jerking off the audience
Honestly, I think it is a great move. I agree that if you had them wandering for years it would get stale. No need for a lot of filler episodes or one-shots.
Moore and Eick were vague on their plans for the series’ final episodes, but Moore did say that viewers will “get to see Earth” by the end of the show.
As long as they are not arriving in 1980 with invisible flying motorcycles, I’m cool with it.
