Battlestar Galactica prequel Blood & Chrome will finally air on US television.

The project was originally greenlit in October 2010, with Syfy ultimately announcing in March of this year that it would not air the spinoff.

However, it has now been confirmed that the two-hour TV movie will air on Syfy on a date to be announced.

Prior to its Syfy premiere, Blood & Chrome will be available to watch online via Machinima's premium YouTube channel, Machinima Prime - presented as ten 7- to 12-minute episodes - from November 9.

"With its top-notch storytelling, pulse-pounding action and cutting-edge visual effects, Blood & Chrome is the perfect extension of the Battlestar Galactica universe," said Syfy's Mark Stern.

"We are thrilled to see this hotly-anticipated event premiere on Machinima, an online network that is unparalleled in its delivery of high-class digital content to millions of viewers."
