Syfy Cancels ‘Dominion’
After two seasons, Syfy is pulling the plug on one of its more unique series.
Syfy has canceled Dominion, opting not to renew the series for a third season. The show, based on the 2010 film Legion, took place in a world shaped by the aftermath of a war between angels and humans.
“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,” Syfy said in a statement. “We thank them, as well as our producing partners Universal Cable Productions, Bold Films and Film Afrika.”
Dominion had a solid cult following, but it never achieved the sort of ratings stability that some of Syfy’s more successful shows achieved. In season two, Dominion averaged an unfortunate 0.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic, a considerable 47% decline from Season 1. Ultimately, the show just wasn’t finding an audience, although you could argue that part of it had to do with Syfy’s scheduling, or its relative lack of a strong promotional push for the show. Either way, it’s a shame to lose a series as distinctive as this one. Hopefully, the talent involved — both behind and in front of the camera — find homes on new projects soon.
