A science fiction series is going into permanent hibernation.
Syfy has canceled “Alphas” after two seasons. The series was created by Zak Penn and Michael Karnow.
“Unfortunately #Alphas is cancelled,” Ryan Cartwright, a cast member, tweeted on Wednesday.
“Sad to say that ALPHAS will not be returning. What an honor to get to play Rachel for 2 years & to work w/ & for the MOST AMAZING PEOPLE EVER,” cast member Azita Ghanizada tweeted.
“Thanks for tuning in the last couple of years!” cast member Warren Christie told his fans.
The X-Men- like“Alphas” revolved around a team of regular people with superhuman physical and mental ability. “Good Night and Good Luck’s” David Straithairn (as their “Dr. X,” Dr. Rosen), Lauren Mennell, Malik Yoba and Erin Way also starred. The team operated under the Defense Criminal Investigative Service, the U.S. Department of Defense’s criminal investigative arm.
