The post-alien invasion science fiction series Defiance has officially been cancelled after three seasons…
Defiance was launched just a few short years ago as one of the SyFy network’s most ambitious series with a show and video game being released at the same time.
While the game died off fairly quickly, the show continued on for three total seasons but now Defiance has officially come to an end after SyFy cancelled the series on Friday.
The show starred Grant Bowler, Julie Benz, Stephanie Leonidas, Tony Curran and Jaime Murray as survivors on Earth after a war broke out between humanity and several invading forces from across the universe.
“Defiance was a truly groundbreaking series, delivering an immersive, cross-platform experience that transcended the television screen in a way that viewers had never seen before,” SyFy said in a press release. “We are incredibly proud of the work of the extraordinary cast, writers, artists and designers – and especially showrunner Kevin Murphy – who together brought the rich world of Defiance to life over its three-season arc.”
The show had good ratings through season one, but most recently Defiance ended up buried on Friday nights where many TV shows are sent to die and while the series still delivered an average of 1.12 million viewers per episode.
Still, those numbers were a far cry from where Defiance started and thus the series has come to an end.
