Season End Status: This show’s numbers were down from the already low levels it was at during its first season, but Syfy still saw fit to give it a third year renewal. It may have international financing / partnerships helping to defer the costs and its digital viewing my be good as well (it did not post much in the way of delayed viewing gains, though). The show continues to get good marks from critics and fans, but viewership is what it needs to remain on the air. Don’t be surprised if at some point Syfy announces this show’s third season as its last.
