There won't be more Dark Matter at Syfy.
The NBCUniversal cabler has canceled the drama after three seasons, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
Co-creator Joseph Mallozzi announced the cancellation in a blog post Friday. "It is with great sadness that I confirm the news. Syfy has cancelled Dark Matter after three seasons. To say that I’m incredibly disappointed would be an understatement," he wrote. "I just want to extend a heartfelt thanks to my amazing crew, my wonderful cast, and to all of you, our incredible fans. You all deserved better."
The news comes a week after the third season finale of Dark Matter.
Mallozzi created the hourlong with Paul Mullie based on their comic book of the same name. The Canadian drama centered on a group of six people who wake up with amnesia aboard a starship. With no memories of their previous lives, they set about trying to determine who they are and what happened to them.
The duo executive produced the series with Jay Firestone, Vanessa Piazza, Keith Goldberg and Mike Richardson.
The series, which hailed from Prodigy Pictures and Dark Horse Entertainment, premiered on Syfy and Canada's Space in 2015.
Dark Matter is one of several Canadian productions at Syfy. Others include Killjoys and Wynonna Earp. The cabler's other acquisitions include Z-Nation and Van Helsing.
Syfy's other original series include The Expanse, The Magicians, Channel Zero, Blood Drive and 12 Monkeys, which is getting ready to return for its fourth and final season. Upcoming series include the adaptation of Grant Morrison's Happy! and the Superman prequel series Krypton.
