DARK MATTER CANCELLED OR RENEWED TIMELINE
Watch this space as Dark Matter‘s cancel/renew timeline takes shape from start to finish:
August 29, 2015 – Showrunner Joseph Mallozzi confirms that he’s still waiting to hear about Dark Matter Season 2 from Syfy, but has five seasons mapped out.
August 13, 2015 – Dark Matter and Killjoys will have panels at Toronto’s Fan Expo on Sept. 3. This doesn’t necessarily mean Season 2 renewals are imminent (Hannibal still went to Comic-Con after being cancelled by NBC), but it does up the ante as we near the all-important decision.
June 15, 2015 – Dark Matter premieres to a 0.3 key demo rating. Not great, but it keeps the show in the renewal rat race, coming in just under the 0.4 rating 12 Monkeys (renewed for Season 2) delivered in its series premiere. However, it’s worth bearing in mind that the less well-received Ascension opened with 0.6 – and never fell below 0.4 in its failed back-door pilot 6-episode run. Critical acclaim and social reach, therefore, cold play a key role in Dark Matters‘ future.
April 7, 2015 — Syfy gives Dark Matter a huge global release in 86 countries, ensuring the space drama gets that all-important exposure upon its June 12 release.
October 15, 2014 — Syfy announces the 13-episode first season pick-up of Dark Matter, based on the Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie comic book series of the same name.
January 2012 — Dark Matter launches as a 4-issue graphic novel.
November 21, 2011 — Ahead of its comic series launch, writer Joseph Mallozzi says Dark Matter is envisaged as a TV series with the comics serving as a “springboard to the television show”.
