"Battlestar Galactica" aired its final episode more than a year ago, but the story of Admiral William Adama isn't over yet.
In an interview with Screen Junkies, leading man Edward James Olmos — who played Adama and directed numerous episodes of the series, including the telemovie "The Plan" — revealed that he's currently working on a "Battlestar Galactica" sequel in comic book form.
"I'm going to go there. I'm going to go there in a graphic novel," he said. "Pretty soon I hope. I don't know. It just depends on whether people can get behind it and understand it for what it is. I think people will."
"I want to know what he's doing right now," said Olmos. "I kind of was left with him sitting about to build his cabin, so God almighty I'd like to know what's happening to him right now. In many moments throughout the day, I'll think, 'I wonder what he's doing? What the heck is he up to? What the heck are those people up to?' Here they were 200,000 years ago on this earth. They came from the experience that they came from. All I can tell you is: aren't you guys curious as to what happened to them?"
“I think people would really flip out to know what Lee Adama is doing on the planet, what the chief is doing on the planet and what is the colonel doing on the planet and how is the planet treating us and how are we treating the planet," he continued. "How are we getting along, the human development that we were inside of the human development that we see today. That’s pretty heavy."
Olmos is currently in the process of seeking an artist for the graphic novel.
