CANCELLED – Defiance – Season 3
Syfy have cancelled their drama Defiance after three seasons.
After struggling in the ratings, dropping nearly 28% from season two, the network have decided they have had enough.
The series only averaged 1.13 million viewers compared to 1.56 million from season two.
Despite Defiance being Syfy’s most watched series this year, it was clearly a financial decision to not continue with producing more episodes.
