The cast of Alphas has responded to the cancellation of the Syfy series after just two seasons.
Members of the cast, including Ryan Cartwright, Warren Christie, Azita Ghanizada and Laura Mennell, took to Twitter to share their feelings about the ratings-challenged show’s demise and thank the fans and those who worked on the show:

Will Alphas receive some form of closure? I can’t see a graphic novel being released to continue the story, so hopefully the Season 2 DVD will contain some pointers from the creative team as to how they would or may have ended the show had they been able to continue. While not the same thing as the real thing, it would be a nice touch. That said, we’re still waiting for the promised resolution to Alcatraz..
