I'm a bit disappointed syfy channel has chosen not to renew Dark Matter - Joseph Mallozzi (the shows creator blog)
Really hoping another channel can pick this up (Netflix/Amazon).
there is a change.org petition which may help keep it alive.
other sources TV Series Finale  TV Line Variety

 

On the other hand Killjoys has been given a finale 2 seasons (tv series finale).

 

I like both but Killjoys is kind of like warehouse 13 or Eureka and is essentially a sci-fi filler to me.  Its engaging but is a bit by the numbers. 

 

Amazon/Netflix are going global and CBS (star trek discovery - I think Netflix NZ might be OK but OZ could have another paywall) are looking to buy channel 10 Australia (The Age).
With the above in mind I think given past cancellations (and rebranding efforts) syfy channel has lost the plot and unfortunately this means we will (and have lost) lose a lot of potentially good and upcoming sci-fi tv series as syfy disappears from the market.

I've been really enjoying both Killjoys and Dark Matter, and it's gutting DM is being killed off.





Information wants to be free. The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it.

I never really got into Dark Matter..  The last season was a definite improvement over the previous though.  Killjoys I liked more.

I readcan article online advocating for buying sci-fi TV series on Blu-ray even if you have seen the series to provide additional market evidence of popularity.

So I went straight out and bought The Expanse....
