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.
Unfortunately #Alphas is cancelled 🙁
