Syfy has announced that Dominion will not return for a third season.
The drama, based on the 2010 feature film Legion, saw a ratings drop of “47 percent in the advertiser-coveted adults 18-49 demographic (300,000 in live-plus-same-day returns) and 45 percent in total viewers (900,000),” according to The Hollywood Reporter.
“Led by [series creator] Vaun Wilmott, the talented cast, producers, writers and crew of Dominion have done a tremendous job bringing this ambitious, cinematic series to the screen over the past two seasons,” said a Syfy spokesperson in a statement. “We thank them, as well as our producing partners Universal Cable Productions, Bold Films and Film Afrika.”
Dominion stars Christopher Egan, Tom Wisdom, Roxanne McKee, Alan Dale, Anthony Stewart Head, Luke Allen-Gale. It was in the first batch of Syfy shows that are being released that fall inline with the network’s strategy to create bold and distinctive sci-fi fantasy drama.
December’s 10-part series The Expanse and Arthur C. Clarke’s mini-series Childhood’s End, also set to premiere this December, are next up on the list of new sci-fi focused dramas, followed by The Magicians and Hunters, both headed to the network in 2016.
