Ended – Ascension – Season 1
The mini-series will not be getting a full season order.
Even though it was touted as a mini-series, Syfy have chosen not to order anymore episodes of their series Ascension.
The ratings were nothing spectacular for the series. The cable channel has told Deadline that, “We were very happy with Ascension as an event series, but with so much high profile development in the works, we have decided not to pursue a full series.”
Airing in December 2014, Ascension follows an alternate reality in which, in 1963, President Kennedy and the government sent 600 volunteers (men, women, and children) into space on a century-long voyage aboard a self-sustaining generation ship. The cast includes Tricia Helfer, Gil Bellows, Brian Van Holt, Andrea Roth, Brandon P. Bell, Jacqueline Byers, Tiffany Lonsdale, and P.J. Boudousqué.
It is not clear if the show will be picked up by another network or not.
