Actor Ryan Cartwright, who stars as Gray, later wrote, “Unfortunately #Alphas is cancelled :(.”
According to Entertainment Weekly, Syfy released a statement confirming the news.
“Syfy has decided not to renew Alphas for a third season,” the network said. “We’ve been proud to present this entertaining, high-quality series for two seasons and to work with an incredible ensemble of talented actors, producers and creatives as well as our partners at BermanBraun Television. We’d like to thank the show’s dedicated regular viewers for their tremendous support.”
Although the show had its fans, it failed to draw in a large number of viewers. Just 1.7 million viewers tuned in to the second season premiere.
Alphas also starred Lincoln’s David Strathairn, Warren Christie, Lauren Mannell and Malik Yoba.
