ODYSSEY 5 IS BACK!

We're FINALLY going to get to see the rest of the season. Unfortunately there probably won't be any new episodes, but at least we get some kind of closure. From an IGN Filmforce article:
Odyssey 5 was launched with great expectations in June, 2002 along with the final Showtime season of SG-1 and the second season of Jeremiah. When the series went on hiatus halfway through its 20-episode run, viewers were left to wonder about the fate of the crew and their attempt to prevent the imminent destruction of the Earth. Series creator and producer Manny Coto moved over to Paramount's Star Trek: Enterprise last season as a co-producer and will be taking over the day-to-day duties of running that show for its fourth season, so don't look for any more Odyssey 5 in the near or distant future.

While viewers in Canada and other countries were able to see what would be the final six episodes of the series soon after, viewers in the US have been left hanging since September of 2002. Showtime will bring the series back in September, when it will take over the three-hour block being used for Jeremiah season one repeats. This should mean that the six unaired episodes will air as part of the run but as faithful Odyssey 5 viewers know, you can't assume anything where this show's broadcast schedule is concerned.

While that sounds only vaguely promising, Showtime Too began rerunning the previously-aired episodes 3 at a time beginning with episodes 1-3 last night, and regular Showtime will begin airing the new episodes in October, in the same timeslot as Jeremiah. See September and October schedules (schedules load as PDFs) for all the Showtime channels for more details.
