Syfy has cancelled its drama series “Hunters” just days after the finale of its thirteen-episode first season.
The series, executive produced by Gale Anne Hurd (“The Walking Dead”), follows government agents fighting a secret cell of alien terrorists. It scored both critical derision and low ratings over its run, making its cancellation unsurprising.
“Hunters” was one of several original scripted science fiction series Syfy has pushed out in recent years in an effort to recapture its former glory. So far it has mostly been a success with both “12 Monkeys” and “The Expanse” scoring strong critical notices and solid enough ratings to score third and second season renewals respectively.
