It's always sad news to share when a show that you love looks like it isn't continuing, and although we've discussed it already I think it deserves it's own post. The news is out that SyFy has decided not to renew Alphas for a third season. Now, that wording doesn't necessarily scream 'cancelled', but it would be surprizing to see more of the show at this point.
Alphas was a great addition to the summer TV schedule, it centred on characters who have very specific abilities beyond the range of normal human capabilities; when discovered have the option to join an organization or go to 'the compound'. The show premiere summer 2011 and season 2 aired summer 2012. With interesting characters, complex moral questions, action and smarts it was a joy to watch.
Here at Hexed, we've followed Alphas since it's very first episode and will miss it now that it's gone. See podcasts and posts discussing Alphas here.
