For fans of Syfy’s Dark Matter, Friday was a sad day. Deadline.com reports that series co-creator confirmed that the series has been cancelled.
“It is with great sadness that I confirm the news. Syfy (Channel Zero) has cancelled Dark Matter after three seasons,” Joseph Mallozzi wrote on his personal blog. “To say that I’m incredibly disappointed would be an understatement.”
While Mallozzi did not go into specific reasons for the cancellation, he did promise that those questions would be answered in a future blog post adding that fans of the popular show deserved better than what they were being given.
Mallozzi also co-created the graphic novel on which the series is based with fellow writer Paul Mullie. The series centers around a small crew of people who wake up on a spaceship with no idea of who they or how they got there. Without knowing their names, the characters are referred to as numbers: One, Two, Three, Four, Five, and Six.
No doubt fans will be on the lookout for more information from Mallozzi, and we’ll continue reporting as we receive more information.
