The series premiered in July of 2011 and pulled in 2.5 million pairs of eyeballs.
But Mondays might have bitten the series and the numbers slowly faded. By the end of season 2, the show was averaging just over a million viewers.
And if it's anything we've learned, it's that Comcast's shrewd business eye won't tolerate a product that doesn't support itself, ala, Eureka. TV is a business, and that's something we all have to remember.
In a word about Alphas being cancelled, bummer.
A press release 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.”
