We may never know if Nolan and Doc Yewll ever managed a return to Defiance.
Syfy has cancelled the dystopian sci-fi series after three seasons, the cabler confirmed on Friday. TVLine’s hand-carved Cable Renewal Scorecard has thusly been updated.
“Defiance was a truly groundbreaking series, delivering an immersive, cross-platform experience that transcended the television screen in a way that viewers had never seen before,” reads a statement issued by Syfy. “We are incredibly proud of the work of the extraordinary cast, writers, artists and designers — and especially showrunner Kevin Murphy — who together brought the rich world of Defiance to life over its three-season arc.”
Added Murphy in his own statement, “I got to collaborate with a group of stunning artists operating at the top of their game, and together we built a world. Because of that, there is no room for anything other than joy in my heart.”
Did you see the end coming, Defiance fans, given that closure-filled finale? Or was anyone holding out hope for a Season 4?
