SyFy network cancels Dark Matter, renews Killjoys.

SyFy has renewed their space bounty hunter series “Killjoys” for two seasons, the second of which will also be the series’ last. SyFy also axed another of their prime-time series. “Dark Matter” will not be returning for a fourth season.

I remember when both of these series launched on SyFy. I found Killjoys to be somewhat formulaic; the inter-planetary political structure reminded me of the Alliance from Firefly. I’m not saying they were identical, just that there was a vague similarity.¬† I guess there are certain tropes that just tend to repeat themselves in science fiction television. Ultimately I found the premise and the characters¬† interesting enough to keep watching.

Unfortunately, Dark Matter never really appealed to me. I’m not sorry to see it go. I watched the premier episode and never came back to it.
