'Alphas' cancelled by Syfy
Say goodbye to Syfy’s Alphas.
The network has decided to not renew the show, about a group of people with various superhuman abilities, for a third round. The axing isn’t too surprising since Alpha‘s second season debut last summer only delivered 1.7 million viewers, which was down significantly from its series debut the prior year. Syfy tried switching showrunners between the show’s first and second season in hopes of improving the numbers. Guess none of the Alphas team had the power to conjure up Nielsen ratings.
Syfy released this statement: “Syfy has decided not to renew Alphas for a third season. We’ve been proud to present this entertaining, high-quality series for two seasons and to work with an incredible ensemble of talented actors, producers and creatives as well as our partners at BermanBraun Television. We’d like to thank the show’s dedicated regular viewers for their tremendous support.”
