Well, it’s not good news, but at least Syfy has decided to not leave us hanging for much longer. According to Deadline, Syfy has canceled Dark Matter after three thirteen episode seasons. In addition, Killjoys, which has the preceding time slot, has been renewed, for its final two seasons.

More about this Dark Matter and Killjoys news

Dark Matter syfyDark Matter has been canceled after ending its third season with a game-changer of a season finale. Showrunner Joseph Mallozzi wrote of the cancellation “It is with great sadness that I confirm the news. Syfy has canceled Dark Matter after three seasons. To say that I’m incredibly disappointed would be an understatement. I just want to extend a heartfelt thanks to my amazing crew, my wonderful cast, and to all of you, our incredible fans. You all deserved better.”

Meanwhile, Killjoys has been renewed for two more seasons of ten episodes each. Showrunner Michelle Lovretta says “This renewal is the kind of privilege every creator hopes for — a chance to plan the end of your story with the luxury of 20 episodes to do it. I’m immensely grateful that both of our network partners — along with Temple Street and UCP — have given our team, cast, and fans this incredible opportunity.” 

Killjoys stars Hannah John-Kamen as Dutch (and season three villain Aneela), Aaron Ashmore ( an alum of a similarly treated Syfy show, Warehouse 13) as Johnny, and Luke Macfarlane as D’Avin.

Fellow Friday night Syfy show Wynonna Earp was picked up for a third season earlier this summer.

On the bright side, Dark Matter season three will be coming to Netflix later this month, on 25 September. Killjoys is not currently available on any paid streaming service, but you can catch up on Syfy’s website.
