Syfy has started to turn into Fox from the 90s by creating and killing off new science fiction shows before they run their course. Take for example ‘Dark Matter.‘ Fans are up in arms about the network ending without a fourth season and while we often seem to see a petition starting when a series is canceled these days, it looks as if the passion of the fanbase might bring this one back!
Showrunner Joseph Mallozzi has been thrilled at the outpouring of support, and has hinted that fans might get some kind of ending for the series! It is unclear at this point if they would continue at Syfy with additional funding from an outside source or at another network, but there is clearly interest in keeping the showing going!
Here is what Mallozzi shared:
“We can do this! In fact, we ARE doing it. All that online passion – the tweets, retweets, tagging and hash tagging – is having an effect. It’s impressing some, concerning others, but surprising all. It’s thanks to you that we are where we are, with three potential new partners in deep discussion. As I’ve been saying all along, pulling this off is still a longshot, but you’ve gone above and beyond the call in raising awareness and letting everyone out there know exactly how much Dark Matter means to you. And now we need you to pour it on for the big finish.”
It isn’t clear if these “three potential new partners” would just want to finance the series on Syfy or would be interested in bringing it to a streaming service such as Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon. However, these “interested parties” seem to indicate that if there is a path to move forward with the series that we could see it happen!
As someone who loved the series, I hope that we can get another season or two to bring the story to a proper close.
