“Dark Matter” Cancelled By Syfy

While “Killjoys” scored a double season renewal, its sister show “Dark Matter” launched at the same time has not been so lucky.

Deadline reports that Syfy has cancelled the sci-fi drama after three seasons due to low ratings. The show, from “Stargate SG-1” alum Joseph Mallozzi, follows the crew of a derelict spaceship who awake with no memory and who must work together to survive a hostile universe.

Melissa O’Neil, Anthony Lemke, Alex Mallari Jr, Jodelle Ferland, Roger Cross, Marc Bendavid and Zoie Palmer co-starred in the series which just aired its third season finale last week.

Mallozzi has released an official statement on his website:

“It is with great sadness that I confirm the news. Syfy has cancelled Dark Matter after three seasons. To say that I’m incredibly disappointed would be an understatement.

I’ll save my comments and field your questions in a future blog entry. For today, I just want to extend a heartfelt thanks to my amazing crew, my wonderful cast, and to all of you, our incredible fans.”

The first two seasons are currently available to stream on Netflix.
