Alphas, Syfy’s two-season-old series about people with mental superpowers that doubled as a sneaky examination of mental illness, has been canceled. The news was first reported via tweets from Azita Ghanizada, Ryan Cartwright, and Warren Christie, who all starred in the show. It was confirmed later via a statement from Syfy itself. As recently as last week, the network was still in negotiations to bring back the show, presumably at a reduced budget, but it would seem those negotiations fell through (or were, perhaps, never all that serious to begin with). The show’s ratings fell 30 percent in »
I am disappointed. Today Syfy executives decided to not renew Alphas for a third season. It was a great show about people with different extraordinary abilities. Even I can say that it had its ups and downs, and that was reflected in its ratings as well, but at its core, the idea and the characters were great and the actors all really worked well together.
Here is the statement from Syfy:
“Syfy has decided not to renew Alphas for a third season. We’ve been proud to present this entertaining, high-quality series for two seasons and to work with an incredible ensemble of talented actors, producers and creatives as well as our partners at BermanBraun Television. We’d like to thank the show’s dedicated regular viewers for their tremendous support.”

Syfy's "Alphas" have officially solved their final case. The sci-fi drama series about the titular group of crime-fighting superhumans has been canceled after two seasons, following a ratings drop that saw viewership plummet from over 2.5 million (Live+7) for the Season 1 premiere to barely more than 1 million for last October's Season 2 finale.
