It's a sad day for fans of Syfy's "Dark Matter," as the studio has decided to cancel the Canadian sci-fi series after three seasons. The Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie-created series is based on the comic book series of the same name and first aired on June 12, 2015, and recently aired its season 3 finale in August.

According to TVLine, Syfy confirmed the show's cancellation after three seasons, with a total of 29 episodes. Mallozzi, who serves as an executive producer on the show, took to his blog to share his "great sadness" about the cancellation.

He wrote, "To say that I’m incredibly disappointed would be an understatement." He added that fans of the show should expect a "future blog entry" about the news, wherein he will answer some questions. He closed with a thank you note for all the fans and viewers of the show. He wrote, "You all deserved better."

What could have been in season 4

In August, "Dark Matter" creator Joseph Mallozzi spoke to Carter Matt to hint at a possible season 4. He explained that throughout the show, they tried to make sure that each season had a beginning, middle, and end. He described the first season as a "ship war mystery," while season 2 was more of a "story of redemption."

Season 3 for him was "a crisis of conscience for Two." He explained that with season 3, they wanted to "begin a new chapter that will hopefully set things up for season 4.

That will take the series in a completely different direction, one that I think sci-fi fans are going to really respond to and really love." His dreams for a fourth season were broken when Syfy announced that they will not be continuing on with the series.

Producer had fair hopes for a fourth season

Back in August, "Dark Matter" executive producer Joseph Mallozzi was hopeful that the series would get a renewal from Syfy.

He shared that there were already stories that they wanted to tell in case the show would get renewed for a fourth season. The plan was to prepare for a possible fourth season in October and begin filming in November up to May 2018. However, the series has been canceled by Syfy. There hasn't been a word about whether the series will head to another network or go to a streaming partner such as Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon.

Syfy's "Dark Matter" starred Marc Bendavid as One/Jace Corso, Melissa O'Neil as Two/Rebecca, Anthony Lemke as Three/Marcus Boone, Alex Mallari Jr. as Four/Ryo Tetsuda, Jodelle Ferland as Five/Das, and Roger Cross as Six/Griffin Jone. The series aired from 2015 to just this August and won't see a renewal for a fourth season.
