Syfy has decided not to order a third season of supernatural action drama Dominion, which just wrapped its Season 2 run. Created by Vaun Wilmott based on characters from the 2010 feature Legion, Dominion, which starred Christopher Eagan, was set 25 years in the future after a war between an army of angels and mankind has transformed the world. There is no decision yet on Defiance, which is awaiting word on Season 4.
“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 saw its ratings drop in Season 2, averaging a 0.3 in 18-49 (Live+ same day), down -47% from Season 1, and 0.9 million viewers, down -45%.
Bold Films, which produced the movie for Screen Gems, co-produced the series with Universal Cable Prods. It was shot in South Africa.
Coming up for Syfy later this year are new series The Expanse, starring Thomas Jane, and limited series Children’s End, an adaptation of Arthur C. Clarke’s classic novel.
On tap for next year are new series The Magicians, Hunters as well as returning 12 Monkeys, which was renewed for a second season, and Canadian imports Killjoys and Dark Matter.
