Re: Dark Matter

My favourite episode by far and I would gladly have seen it as a two parter. I can't believe we are nine episodes in already, this season is really good. As it is made by the SG dudes it is a shame we can't go for 20 episode seasons.

Re: Dark Matter

Get your tissues ready........................it has been cancelled. I wish they would let them do a half season at 6 eps to let them wrap up the story line. I hate it when this happens.

Quote:
It’s a dark time for fans of Dark Matter. Deadline reports Syfy has cancelled the TV show after three seasons.

The sci-fi drama follows the crew of a derelict spaceship who awake with no memory and who must work together to survive a threatening voyage charged with vengeance, betrayal, and plenty of secrets. The cast includes Marc Bendavid, Melissa O’Neil, Anthony Lemke, Alex Mallari Jr, Jodelle Ferland, Roger Cross, and Zoie Palmer.

Ratings for Dark Matter have been low for some time. Overall, season three averaged a .15 rating in the 18-49 demo and only 614,000 viewers, making it one of Syfy‘s lower-rated TV shows for the 2016-2017 season.

On his blog, co-creator Joseph Mallozzi confirmed the show’s cancellation and thanked the fans, cast, and crew:

“It is with great sadness that I confirm the news. Syfy has cancelled Dark Matter after three seasons.

To say that I’m incredibly disappointed would be an understatement.

I’ll save my comments and field your questions in a future blog entry. For today, 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.”

Did they look at the piracy numbers?

I'm sure it got more downloads than those numbers would indicate for viewers.

Re: Dark Matter

It had 614,000 viewers for this season, which is more than The Expanse (562,000), and only fractionally less than Killjoys (627,000).

As far as the stupid 18-49 figure goes, it was 0.15, while KillJoys was 0.17 (and The Expanse was 0.18).

Wynonna Earp was also renewed (which I'm pleased about) but its figures were only 499,000 and 0.12. Go figure.

SyFy make some very strange decisions, both Defiance & Dominion had much better figures than any of the above, but got cancelled. Defiance had 1.125 million viewers when it was canned, over 330,000 more than any of their current programmes, Dominion had 869,000, also higher than anything they currently have. Their current best is The Magicians, at 788,000.

Re: Dark Matter

The creator has written a blog post breaking down the cancellation from his perspective https://josephmallozzi.wordpress.com...k-matter-fans/

Such a shame it's cancelled but at least he's still fighting to save it, just won't be on Syfy if he manages to.

Never say never den.

Joe Mallozzi is expecting an answer today on if another network will be picking it up.

Unlike many series Syfy did not have the distribution rights so Joe is free to pitch it to the likes of Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime etc.

He requested the backing of fans on social media to show them the support it has and didn't we do him proud!

He hasn't said who he's negotiating with (I suspect Netflix) but did say he needed the social media statistics to show them and he got that in spades.

His latest blog states he will have a decision today (US time).

I'll post again when he's told us. Fingers crossed!
