Unfortunately for fans of Syfy’s Alphas, the network has pulled the plug on the drama series after two seasons.
“Syfy has decided not to renew Alphas for a third season,” the network said in a statement to Hollywood.com. “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.”
Alphas was about a team of ordinary people with extraordinary and unusual mental skills (i.e. superpowers). The show’s stars Warren Christie, Ryan Cartwright, Laura Mennell, and Azita Ghanizada expressed their disappointment with the cancellation via Twitter.

SyFy's new show Alphas comes out this summer and it's another one of those shows where each character discovers an interesting talent that they didn't know they had before, kind of like Heroes. Or X-Men. Or, well, a lot of other stuff. It's okay though, because the creative team behind Alphas is actually pretty stunning. Developed for television by Zak Penn (writer of X2, X-Men: Last Stand, The Incredible Hulk) and Michael Karnow, it's directed by Jack Bender (Lost) and stars Academy Award-nominee David Strathairn, Warren Christie, Malik Yoba, Laura Mennell, Ryan Cartwright and Azita Ghanizada. But enough of this blabber, check out the sneak peek video. Alphas premieres on July 11 at 10/9c.
