Syfy has cancelled Defiance after three seasons, RenewCancelTV has learned.
The cable network has opted not to continue with a fourth season of the sci-fi drama, which concluded Season 3 with a fair amount of closure, mindful that the axe could swing.
The cancellation of Defiance comes days after Syfy downed genre companion Dominion after two seasons.
The network said via statement:
“Defiance was a truly groundbreaking series, delivering an immersive, cross-platform experience that transcended the television screen in a way that viewers had never seen before. We are incredibly proud of the work of the extraordinary cast, writers, artists and designers – and especially showrunner Kevin Murphy – who together brought the rich world of Defiance to life over its three-season arc.”
