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.

The actor, who was previously married to Leelee Sobieski, reunited with Ghanizada four months ago.
A source tells Us Weekly magazine, "They are really happy together."
Davis' union with Joan of Arc star Sobieski was short-lived - they filed for divorce in 2008, just two months after exchanging vows.
Even though Kim Kardashian filed papers to divorce Kris Humphries on October 31st, she was seen this weekend in Minnesota with Kris visiting with the pastor, Joel Johnson, who married them. Sources report it was to inform Johnson they were splitting up, and Kim and Kris probably decided to break the news to him in person because he's known Kris since he was a child. This was the first time Kim had seen Kris since she announced she was going to divorce him and he was shocked about it. Let's just hope Pastor Johnson didn't try and convince the two of them to stay married, because then heaps of journalism will have gone to waste and you do not want to see what will happen when writers have to go back to writing about unemployment percentages. - Fox News
Lauren Conrad and Derek Hough have split up according to infinite wisdom himself, Perez Hilton. A source close to Lauren claims she "had fun with Derek, but she always kept her options open." For what, exactly? A guy who isn't a dancer and who isn't charming and who can't re-create any scene out of West Side Story? Is she kidding me with this?!?!?! - Perez Hilton
Mel Gibson was spotted making out with Azita Ghanizada, who is apparently on this show called Alphas. Ghanizada's representative told TMZ that they were not on a date, so you know -- cool? - TMZ
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.
