Syfy has cancelled Dark Matter after three seasons.
The cabler has opted not to continue the space drama into Season 4, RenewCancelTV has confirmed.
In Dark Matter, the crew of a derelict spaceship is awakened from stasis with no memories of who they are or how they got on board. Facing threats at every turn – and the realization that they were wanted criminals pre-amnesia – they have to work together to survive a voyage charged with vengeance, betrayal and hidden secrets.
The cancellation comes in the wake of Syfy renewing fellow Friday drama Wynonna Earp for Season 3.
Syfy has also just renewed Killjoys for a final two seasons.
SyFy needs to get a grip. I watch Dark Matter. They have lost a lot of good shows. Someone else needs to take over Syfy. A new CEO if they have one!
I totally agree. Get a new CEO for SyFy. They’ve been cancelling the best shows; and have been, for quite a while. Everyone in my house loves: Dark Matter. Now, another great show will bite the dust. STUPID!
BESSIE M SCOTT says
I agree with you Dark Matter is a terrific show. Who ever decided to cancel it ,needs to rethink their decision!!!!!
Steven Palmer says
dark matter was good, the expanse sucks,, the people who made the decisions to remove the good shows and keep crap are morons… idiots, buffoons…
REALLY …COME ON…DARK MATTER IS AN AWESOME SHOW…WHY CANCEL THE GOOD ONES…RECONSIDER PLEASE !!!!!!!!
I also watched Dark Matter and really did like it. There are too few good shows on SyFy as it is and then to cancel a great show and keep programing the non SYFY shows like the Pro Wrestlers. Pretty dumb move!
The amount o stupidity between the ears of these so called CEO’s continues to amaze me…
The top executives are the worst at SyFy. NBC owned trash company.
One of the last few reasons to even watch the worthless channel is gone. . .
Georgia Hall says
That sucks! It was just as good as Killjoys and Wynonna! 🙁
It had more viewers than either one of those
Why i thought they were safe ,
when Wynonna was renewed!
Very disappointed n u Syfy!
That doesnt happen a lot!
HOPE NOT 2 CONTINUE 2 HAPPEN!
just saying says
There Syfy goes again with there head up there but- s, cancelling a great show.
Kay B. says
What the heck is going on with these ignorant CEOs at SyFy? There are very few good shows left on the ONLY Science Fiction station!! I guess is won’t be long before I won’t be watching that channel any more, WAKE UP SYFY!
Why is this under the Renewed page and not the Cancelled?
Dark matter is the best show on SyFy sense farscape
Just as good as Killjoys and better than Wynonna. Please reconsider. Need at least 1 more season.
I think better than both!
Barry Etheridge says
Oh well. At least they didn’t end it on a huge cliffhanger with a ton of narrative threads completely unresolved ….. aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaagggggggggggggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!
YOU PEOPLE WHO ARE CANCELLING DARK MATTER FOR NO REASON ARE FREAKING IDIOTS!!! GREAT SHOW GREAT CHARACTERS JUST DEVELOPING MORE AND YOU CANCEL WITHOUT AN ENDING? YOU ARE PATHETIC AND USELESS!!! ALSO WHY DON’T YOU JUST MAKE THESE LIMITED SERIES SO WE KNOW THEY ARE GOING TO END?? INSTEAD OF JUST DROPPING THEM INTO THE ABYSS AGAIN THE PEOPLE THAT MAKE THESE DECISIONS ARE PATHETIC!!!
Amen and give us a F’ing ending, scifi you are a POS.
I KNOW RIGHT? LEFT US HANGING EVERYWHERE!!!!
Dark Matter is a wonderful show, and of course the storylines are just developing at a fantastic pace, and the character stories, and the wonderful concept universe they have created. Dark Matter is one of the best SYFY series since Battlestar Gallactica. I mean Killjoys is good, and the Expanse is great (love Frankie Adams, and its universe is really fantastic as well, and totally believable given what is happening with the overall space programs, public and private, that are on-going now. I have not had a chance to see Wyonnia Earp, but that seems really nice and sarcastic fantasy as well. So why can Dark Matter? I hate developing first-rate series not coming to a dramatic and logical end. I am not pissed off against NBC, which other than its major network (which is 3 behind ABC and CBS, and just ahead of Fox) is doing a great job, with MSNBC and CNBC but I am really, really, really unhappy that this decision was made. Please do a final season at least, so us fans can see a logical end to the series.
Wendy Lee Bright says
IT DOESN’T MATTER HOW MUCH WE THE FANS COMPLAIN WE ARE NOT GOING TO GET WHAT WE WANT BECAUSE, IT’S A BUNCH OF RICH BITCHES AND BASTARDS THAT’S RUNNING THE SHOW AND THIS IS WHAT THEY DO WHEN THEY GET BORED … THEY LIKE TAKEN AWAY WHAT MAKES OTHER PEOPLE HAPPY. BECAUSE, ALL THAT MONEY STILL DOESN’T MAKE THEM HAPPY SO THEY HAVE TO MAKE OTHERS UNHAPPY
Why couldn’t they renew for two more seasons like Killjoys and let them finish the storyline?
Timothy A Albright says
syfy just lost my viewership
I’M NOT 18-49! I’M 68 AND A SYFY JUNKIE I AM SO AGGRAVATED!!!! I DON’T EVEN RATE IN THEIR STUPID RATINGS CHART!!!
U go girl!
U tell um!
Im n my 50’s &
Dont rate n their
Once a fan
I am also not in the geographic age range at 53. Still LOVE this show and cannot believe you continue to pull us in to these great shows, then drop them like a hot potato!
I’m a 64 year old female…I watch Dark Matter and Killjoys.
I can’t believe this.
Syfy use to be a great channel. Now, not so much.
I hope they listen to the fans.
I am so sick of these idols that run these networks that just want to pump in new shows. They could care less how popular a show is, they just cancel it. Dark Matter is much better than Killjoy which you just renewed. Even Killjoy you state it’s a “fan-favorite space drama” yet you already plan to cancel it. Stupid fu$%#. Killjoy at one point was a good show but the last season is stupid, why the hell didn’t you cancel that and keep Dark Matter. I have just deleted all the Killjoy episodes I have not watched and removed it from my DVR schedule …F you.
Totally agree with all the comments here. I’ve been a sci-fi fan all my life and am now age 71, but the Syfy Channel has been getting worse and worse over the last several years. Dark Matter came along and once again gave me reason to hope it would turn around. But now they cancel a great show with a terrific cast and can’t even bother to finish the storylines. Total disregard for fans. I’m re-watching Star Trek Voyager on BBCA. That station has at least stepped up to give sci-fi fans some quality shows to watch, even if they are re-runs. Shame on the Syfy Channel. They couldn’t even pay to get the new Star Trek Discovery series.
Amen Barbara! We remember all the good SYFY shows and this had a wonderful story line and great characters; loved Andorid coming into her own (boobs, boobs)….and I am really disgusted with never being counted in the viewership numbers! We are not 18-49 and we Boomers appreciate good Syfy! BAD MISTAKE NBC SYFY!!!
Loved all the charactors & actors!
Stayed a little 2 much on #4
Should have brought Bendavid,#1,
(Duplicated 2 & 3!)
Like them or clone!
Prob where some of their
Decline n viewers went!
He was a heart throb for the younger viewers!
Can’t even give us an ending. Screw you
pissed as hell…..
As usual Syfy cancels another great and put on crap shows or leaves crap show on. How about the survey all the people out there not just in one Country and make us ALL happy. Glad this site is here to advise us that another great show is gone.
Adam W says
Maybe we should ask Amazon or Netflix to pick it up….
Netflix if u choose one!
SYFY if your at all reading these comments. You better change your choice of canceling Dark Matter and let it continue. There is no doubt it is a great show. If you don’t, i hope everyone quits watching your channel and you end up loosing your service. So do the right thing and keep the Dark Matter series continuing on.
if Syfy doesn’t want it then let’s give it to Netflix then…
CHRISTINE HEINRICH says
so sad…it was a great show
This is a good show that is being removed and your keeping Wyonna Earp, what a dumb move. It appears every time you come up with a good show you can’t wait to drop it. Maby Netflix will take a look at it. The more TNT,USA and others screw up the more I watch Netflix ,HULU, Amazon ect. Makes me want to cut cable.
Judy Whann says
I am very upset by the cancelation of the Sifi series, Dark Matter. I have never missed an episode and it needs to looked at again! Whoever makes these decisions really needs to wake up! I do not watch Killjoys, tried to get into it and couldn’t and I don’t watch Wyonna Earp. Sick of zombie shows! Canceling Dark Matter was a major no no. I am very upset with Sifi
