    No mention of Orphan Black. It is aired on BBCAmerica. Won a few awards this past year. Thx. D.

      We typically do not track a Cancellation Alert for non-U.S. shows since we do not have quick access to their ratings numbers. We may make mention of how a show like Orphan Black is doing on BBC America, but it’s performance in its home country more heavily dictates whether it will get renewed. That said, the first season of this show performed well and if the second season (beginning on BBC America in April) holds onto those numbers, then it should get renewed for a third year. Of course British shows aren’t always designed to run for many years like U.S. shows, so that’s another factor that has to be taken into consideration as well.

    I love all of my syfy shows they are good shows please do not cancel them I know I’m not alone there is an whole syfy. Genre of us out here and we faithfully watch these shows every season especially Haven and the librarian and a dew others I have voted on. Please keep them coming I don’t watch the general TV shows that a lot or most people watch so what’s wrong with you guys my name and my email are on here

    1. jason

      They don’t care what we as individuals like.. As long as they make money is all that counts. If it doesn’t make dollars it doesn’t make sense.. So many shows I loved or recently started watching because I never heard of them found to be amazing only to see that it was cancelled after 1 season 1 episode etc.

    2. Jodi

      What is wrong with people !? Good, enjoyable shows are being cancelled because too many people prefer brainless reality shows instead of series that make you think and wonder….

      1. pamela white

        Yes its just as you say..”people prefer brainless reality shows” I never watch them, any of them..

        1. Lou

          Well im with you on this 100% , so many good shows have been or they will be canceled, alot of shows they just don’t give them a chance. I’m not to sure how reality shows are really making it since they are all staged and told how to act. Me i don’t care to watch the reality shows either, but it sucks we the people have to see good shows go down the drain.

  4. laura goff

    shows i loved star crossed,the tomarrow people, intelligence,forever and alphas and ugh this seasons losses wayward pines is im sure the first of many that i liked but dont do well in the ratings im sure like me there are many who no longer watch regular tv instead i only get time to watch a few tv sites online its heartbreaking when all of my favorite shows keep getting cancelled im sure extant and lost ship are among the next ones cancelled heres hoping that more of my favorites dont hit the choppiung block of commercial sucess

  5. Arham Khan

    You say that Fear The Walking Dead is renewed but I can’t even find the 3rd episode on AMC on demand! What gives?

    1. admin Post author

      Thanks for the heads up. That page gets updated about once a week and it shows them as active now.

    1. admin Post author

      Haven’t heard of it. Please pass along any info if it is a sci fi / fantasy TV show airing in the States.

  6. Wharfage

    Yep its crazy with all the cancellations of alot of good shows, its almost like why watch anything because they all end quick, best thing to do is wait till they cancel and watch them later so you know how long you can watch them for or if you even want to start. So many great shows and they are gone……..

  7. Ann

    Absolutely right to many good shows are being stopped over bad shows that people don’t really want to see

  8. Dawn

    I hope Damien gets renewed. I think it’s a great show with excellent actors. I was really disappointed to see The Returned get cancelled. I’ve been watching the French version, but I don’t know if it got renewed. Does anyone know?

  9. Dawn

    I hate it that The Returned got cancelled. Does anyone know if the French version got renewed?

    1. admin Post author

      The French original Les Revenants has produced two (highly acclaimed) seasons so far and I seem to recall hearing that a third is in the works, though I can’t seem to find confirmation on that. European shows tend to be built for shorter runs, but apparently that show could extend at least one more season. It aired on Sundance in the U.S. with the first season available on Blu-ray and DVD while seasons 1 and 2 are available on instant streaming.

    hi , where can i find a list about older shows ? or is this the whole list ?

    1. admin Post author

      The first list on this page is the currently airing, returning, upcoming, and recently cancelled shows. Below that is a list of cancelled/ended shows going back to 2012. That’s all we have at the moment, but we may start adding older shows at a future date. If you are looking for a survey of cancelled shows throughout the past sixty years, check out Johnny Jay’s book Cancelled Sci Fi TV: 1949-2015 (

    sy-fi and bbc the worst networks about screwing the public with half series with no ending ! ITS LIKE BUYING A BOOK WITH NO ENDING WHO DOES THAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  12. FKOFF

    I see this happen too often, right now on Handmaid’s Tale, the story starts to drag way too much, same thing happened to Black Sails, a sht ton of it is happening with Arrow etc (not that it matters). Good thing I dl the shows show I can f-ing scroll past the pointless scenes.

    Writers, in their desperation to prolong the main story, start to thin out the story in too many episodes, from 1st eps with lots of action and storytelling, most of the time we end up on season 2 or 3 with scenes eating up precious time with grimaces and stupid long looks, dumb talks, lots of walking scenes and pointless ambiance emmersers (I really don’t need to see how constipated Offred is or how enough she has it of it all, or to see that f-ing bedroom window 20 times an episode), forgetting that viewers stop watching and the guillotine gets prepped.

    Good job Malozzi on Dark Matter! Good job Cuse on Colony. You managed to f it all up!
