Despite story plans for Season 3, Syfy has cancelled Dominion after two seasons, Seriable has learned.
The cable network cancelled the fantasy serial after deciding not to move forward with a third season due to low ratings and a packed 2016 slate, which includes new series The Expanse, The Magicians, Hunters and Childhood’s End (miniseries).
Syfy also has returning serials 12 Monkeys, Dark Matter and Killjoys, among other projects, in the pipeline.
Said Syfy, via statement:
“Led by Vaun Wilmott, the talented cast, producers, writers and crew of ‘Dominion’ have done a tremendous job bringing this ambitious, cinematic series to the screen over the past two seasons. We thank them, as well as our producing partners Universal Cable Productions, Bold Films and Film Afrika.”
Despite expressing hope, series creator Vaun Wilmott seemed to know the end was near with the following message to the fans:
“We end D2 as we began. With a boy and his angel. To our Dominion family. Thank you… For two wonderful years.”

It seems unlikely that Dominion will be shopped to other companies, while the fate of limbo-chum Defiance – which could theoretically be helped by Dominion‘s demise – remains undetermined.
