Well, I was making an allusion to Firefly / Serenity. But, that would work as well.

He may provide some insights as to what may have been, though.

So, am I to understand that Dark Matter has indeed been CANCELLED? I mean, that's what it sounds like, but can I get a confirmation? And if yes, WHY???? What corporate idiot made that decision??

They were only getting the best ratings of any science fiction show on the SyFy network.

It looks like the ratings were better in the 18-49 demo for The Expanse, but the # viewers were less. (I don't know if these are just overnight or with +7 days as well).

shows Season 2 of The Expanse with 0.18 rating in demo and 0.562 million average viewers

We covered this a few pages back. It wasn't all about the ratings. Syfy didn't own the show. So they axed it for cheaper shows they do own. Here's a blog post by Dark Matter's creator. He puts things more into perspective. But I agree with you, it does suck nonetheless.

Latest update from the show-runner:

Quote:
Yes, I may be relaxing, but I haven’t given up on giving you an ending to Dark Matter. While a fourth season isn’t in the cards, I still hold out hope for a mini-series somewhere, somewhen down the line. Alternately, I’ve reached out about a possible comic book continuation of the story and the initial conversation was very promising

A comic book is not what we are looking for. That is not promising at all.

So, Syfy doesnt want it due to cost reasons???

Ok, so why doesnt another network or a streaming service pick this up? Like Netflix or Amazon?? Seems like it would be a win for either to take it over (they could easily afford it) as it comes with an established viewer base...

If Amazon picks it up that would be great. Isn't the first season of Dark Matter already on Netflix?

Read the blog by Joseph Mallozzi. No one picked it up. And the last chance to have someone pick it up for further seasons is gone. The only hope now is for someone to possibly do something in the future with a mini-series. And that is still a very long shot.

Oh well, hopefully they will look into a mini-series... The comic book idea just sucks... I mean seriously, watch the first three seasons - then have to turn the light on and read something...
