Defiance Season 4 is uncertain at Syfy, according to showrunner Kevin Murphy.
Following the closure-tinged Season 3 finale on Friday, Murphy was unable to confirm the show’s return in 2016.
In a potentially ominous note, Murphy thanked the fans for what has “been a great 3 years,” although he’s still hoping for a fourth season renewal.
In a competitive situation, Defiance could well be battling it out with Dark Matter, Killjoys and Dominion for a spot on Syfy’s 2016 summer slate, especially with The Expanse being handed an early Season 2 renewal and plenty of new projects on tap/in development.
Thanks to you Vo-fans. Been a great 3 years, hope we get to do it again. Our #defiance fans are full of talent, wit & passion. Love U all.
