Syfy has cancelled Defiance after a three-season run.
The multiplatform show, which follows a town in which humans attempt to live peacefully with aliens in a post-apocalyptic near future, is produced by Universal Cable Productions, but has now been pulled.
In a statement, the channel said: “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. 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.”
Murphy said: “I got to collaborate with a group of stunning artists operating at the top of their game, and together we built a world. Because of that, there is no room for anything other than joy in my heart.”
