Poll: Which of This Summer’s Not-Yet-Renewed Sci Fi Shows Should Get Another Season?

By | August 20, 2014


Dominion-syfy-cancelledFX announced the renewal of The Strain this week making it the sixth Summer show to receive a pickup, joining The Last Ship (TNT), Falling Skies (TNT), Teen Wolf (MTV), The Leftovers (HBO), and Outlander (Starz) (and if you want to include Showtime’s Penny Dreadful as a Summer entry, make it seven).  But there are still seven genre shows waiting to hear word on whether they will be back for another season, and this is your chance to cast your vote on which ones should get another round of episodes.  Below is the list of shows still in pending status along with their current Cancellation Alert.  Vote for any or all depending on which shows you believe deserve a renewal and I plan on sharing the results with each of the shows’ networks.  I can’t tell that this will do anything to sway their decisions, but for the shows with the most votes, it should be at least one more check in their favor.  And fans of these shows should also stir up some buzz on the social networks.  That has become a recognized gauge of a show’s audience of late, and some good trending on one or more of the social networks can definitely be considered a positive in the eyes of the network executives.

Cancellation Alert statuses from least to most likely to get cancelled: Low, Moderate, Medium, Elevated, High.

    If “Dominion” isn’t renewed, I would totally stop watch the SyFy Channel. It’s the only series I watch on there; it is a masterpiece – – the best original series they’ve ever aired. Incredible writing; awesome acting; amazing special effects!

    Dominion is probably the best show to come from the SyFy channel since Battlestar Galactica. It was serendipitous that I found this show and I was hooked from the word go. It is a fresh take on an age old story. The writing is excellent and takes us on an unexpected path. The special effects are amazing and blend seemlessly with the natural world. When the angels fly you feel you can fly too! But what really makes this story come alive is the acting. It is outstanding. The whole cast are terrific but Tom Wisdom as Michael is a standout. He is so compelling you cannot look away. Sometimes the most promising shows don’t always get renewed. There is so much more to this story. There are so many great reasons to renew this show not least the fans passion. Thanks for the chance to make a comment!

    Dominion is the best thing I’ve seen in years. I had fairly low expectations actually because it hadn’t been heavily advertised so I wasn’t really sure what it was about. The only thing I’ve watched on syfy lately is Haven, and I’d missed a whole season, so not even that. And previous shows hadn’t led me to believe I’d see anything really complex.

    Wow! What a complete surprise! Amazing cast delivers multi-layered characters. You never know where anyone really stands. The plot moves fast. You want answers? You get them! The pilot is undermined a little by costuming and sets that seem too theatrical, but that gets worked out by the second episode. Each epi hooks you deeper, until the season finale. I guarantee your jaw will hit the ground and you’ll be wondering how show creator and writer Vaun Wilmott did it! Dominion deserves a second season.

    Please renew DOMINION. This show stirs your senses. The visual affects and coloring draw the eye, the set intrigues the imagination and lays the scene, the writing stirs your emotions, the acting draws in the sensuality and the special affects makeup/characters tie it beautifully together. Dominion fills a void in the current market. While vampiries, wolves and even dragons have had their fair share of air time, angels tend to be discarded. Many believe that angels are too innocent to be portrayed on television, in such a way as to draw the viewer. Dominion meets this challenge and answers it by providing sexy, alpha male, and alluring female, angels from different factions. Add in the post-apocalyptic scene with humans and you have a show that many viewers can relate to – as in it could happen. The realism factor adds to the supernatural in a way that no other show can design to meet. Syfy may say they already have a post-apocalyptic show with Defiance and my answer would be, yes. Yes, you do. But, while the two shows may both have a “the human must battle to survive in a world gone wrong” vibe, they are, in fact, two completely different shows, offering viewers two completely different experiences. To offer both would show that Syfy is listening to their viewers and willing to meet their demands, Syfy represents that they are the network for all thing supernatural – what better way to cement this position than to have aliens one night and angels another? As a writer, my mind goes wild thinking of what I could do with the various characters of Dominion. This show has endless appeal and can go in so many directions… I would be in heaven writing for this show. It is a writers dream. It is a viewers dream. However, if Syfy does not renew Dominion, it very well could be their nightmare, for that is not a slight that viewers will take lying down,

    SyFy has really hit a new programming level with newer shows like Defiance, which is looking for a third season, and it’s recent addition Orphan Black, which comes with a well-established reputation among fans and critics. But it’s Dominion that has really brought me back to SyFy. The only reason I watched the first episode was because the show I usually watched in that time slot was done for the season, I had nothing new to read and no plans for the evening. I’d never heard of the show but was immediately hooked by the remarkable ensemble cast. There is a network of chemistry between them that makes every relationship utterly believable–and there’s something especially entertaining about a dysfunctional family of archangels (can you say daddy issues?) the story is great, characters and acting so subtly layered I guaranteed you won’t see the twists coming! and the pace (after the pilot episode) is so fast you’ll wonder where the time went. In only a few short months this show has generated an intensely loyal fan base demanding to know what happens next. SyFy needs to deliver on a season two.

    Please renew Dominion!! Other than FaceOff, I do not watch the Syfy channel anymore as there is nothing on there except hobble B movies. Boy was I surprised when I saw an advertisement for Dominion. I am completely in love with Supernatural and the whole Angles/Demons story line and Dominion REALLY had my interest with their idea. Boy am I glad I watched the first episode!! Totally HOOKED! PLEASE RENEW!!

    Dominion WOW! Its about time Syfy gave us a show with genuine appeal. I love the story line and the acting (Tom Wisdom is a exceptional actor he gives Michaels character real depth and belivability.”OUTSTANDING”). I have recorded all the episodes Just in case Syfy is stupid enough to cancel and not give the show a real chance. Sometimes it takes awhile for viewers to find these gems. After all you have to dig through a lot of coal to find a diamond. Syfy give us what we want and that is DOMINION! A season two would be nice but 3,4,5 or more would be better. There is so much they can do with the story line. There is so much material to work with. So Syfy polish this diamond and let is SHINE!
