Syfy has decided not to renew Alphas for a third season. While this isn't a huge surprise, given the significant drop in ratings for the second season, it's still sad for those of us who did keep watching. Come on Syfy, you aren't going to at least let them have a proper conclusion? You're just letting the series end on a cliffhanger? At least we can hope they end up replacing this show with a new original series we can get sucked into. Even though it'll likely be another reality show. Or wrestling. Damn it.
Are you sad to see Alphas go? What was you're favorite moment of its short run?
Both shows follow the adventures of a captain and his crew, both have extremely dedicated fans, and both were sadly cancelled before their time.
While "Star Trek" eventually became a huge franchise, spanning multiple series and movies, the original series lasted only three years before low ratings caused the network to cancel it.
"Firefly" on the other hand only lasted 13 episodes. But dedicated fans rallied around the show and we eventually got a movie, giving the series some much needed closure.
Which cancellation was more unjust? Which show do you wish there was more of? You decide who wins the first round of Battle of the Cancelled!
