It hasn’t been a good month for Matt Damon as after ‘The Great Wall’ bombed at the box office we’ve just learned that Syfy is pulling the show he created with Ben Affleck ‘Incorporated‘ after only a season. Syfy has pulled off quite a few hits as of late with shows like ‘The Expanse’, ‘The Magicians’, and ‘Z Nation’ so it was probably time for one of their series to get canceled as ‘Incorporated’ was pulling less than 500,000 viewers for both live and same-day viewing which is less than half of what ‘The Magicians’ is pulling in.
The cast and crew must have gotten the news early as we’ve already heard that series regular Dennis Haysbert has been tapped for NBC’s upcoming pilot ‘Reverie.’
This isn’t all bad news for the network though as aside from the hits above we know that ‘Dark Matter’, ‘Killjoys’, ‘Van Helsing’, and ‘Channel Zero‘ have all been picked up for further seasons. In fact, fresh off of its Freshmen year ‘Channel Zero’ has been renewed through Season 4!
The series was set in a world where mega-corporations controlled the world instead of governments, and this particular brand of dystopia was pitting the haves against the have-nots. Bonus points for having both U.S. coasts flooded and under water.
While the series had some fun ideas, it felt like recycled material from many films which have already been released. It was a show that could have gone far if it had been just slightly more original and compelling.
Are you sad to hear that ‘Incorporated’ has been canceled or are you looking forward to what Syfy has up their sleeves next? Share your thoughts below!
