Variety says Caprica has been picked up for a second season

It may be a bit early to celebrate since the reports from the upfronts yesterday suggested that the cast & crew were still waiting for official word on season two and I haven't seen any press releases from SyFy or NBC Universal yet, but Variety seems to be treating it as a given: 

At its upfront event Tuesday, the NBC Universal cabler touted plans for a Thursday night block of reality shows: "Paranormal Investigators," which aims to build on the net's success with "Ghost Hunters," and "Mary Knows Best," revolving around a radio psychic and her family. Both shows will bow July 15.

Syfy prexy Dave Howe tub-thumped the new slate, including oddball superhero show "Three Inches," and he talked up a series of vidgame initiatives such as a dedicated gaming website and a massive multiplayer online game set to launch simultaneously with a weekly series.

Other series pickups include "Ghost Hunters Academy" (a competish show with a supernatural theme), a skein about imaginary creatures called "Beast Legends" and fresh seasons of "Warehouse 13," "Eureka," "Ghost Hunters," "Destination Truth," "Caprica," "Stargate Universe" and "Sanctuary."
