Syfy had decided to cancel Alphas, thereby depriving the fans from a Season 3.
"We’ve been proud to present this entertaining, high-quality series for two seasons and to work with an incredible ensemble of talented actors, producers and creatives as well as our partners at BermanBraun Television," Syfy said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter. "We’d like to thank the show’s dedicated regular viewers for their tremendous support."
And after months of not knowing whether or not Alphas will be back for a Season 3, Syfy had decided to announce the cancellation, followed by messages on Twitter from actors Azita Ghanizada, who plays super-sensed Rachel, and Ryan Cartwright, who plays autistic character Gary:
Sad to say that ALPHAS will not be returning. What an honor to get to play Rachel for 2years & to work w/ & for the MOST AMAZING PEOPLE EVER— Azita Ghanizada(@AzitaGhanizada) January 17, 2013
Unfortunately #Alphas is cancelled :(— Ryan Cartwright (@RyanCartwright) January 17, 2013
This news also means that the fans won't have a proper closure after the series finale's terrific cliffhanger.
In the Season 2 finale, autistic Gary was the last man standing after Stanton Parish's plan to shut down the power in New York was contained to Grand Central Station, thanks to the help of Skylar Adams, played by Summer Glau.
Now we'll never know why Gary was unaffected or what happened to Rachel, Nina, Rosen, and the rest of the DCIS.
