SyFy has reported via a statement to THR that their original series, Alphas, which focused on a team of individuals with super powers, will not be getting a third season. As much as we love Alphas it’s really not much of a surprise considering that the network has 13 scripted shows currently in development. Unfortunately they have to make room on the schedule somewhere and the lowest rated and most expensive (relative to the ratings, i.e., least profitable) scripted show is the one that has to go. Ironically, this wouldn’t have been an issue two or three years ago when SyFy had nothing on the horizon. That being said, though, the drop in viewership was dramatic with a season one premiere of 2.5 million to a season two finale of 1 million.
Via a Statement to THR:
“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.”
