Hunters - Cancelled by Syfy



The NBCUniversal-owned cable network has canceled the straight-to-series adaptation of Whitley Strieber's best-selling novel Alien Hunter, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Hunters bowed to little fanfare in April, drawing 540,000 total viewers and was panned by critics (it has a zero rating on Rotten Tomatoes). Through 12 episodes, it has averaged a dismal 316,000 viewers. Monday's season finale will now serve as a series finale.

Hunters is a rare miss for Syfy of late. The cabler has focused heavily in the past few years to reinvent itself with a focus on more traditional science-fiction fare along the lines of critical favorite Battlestar Galactica. Syfy's recent success stories include critical darling 12 Monkeys (renewed for a third, yet smaller season), The Magicians, The Expanse, Z Nation, Killjoys and acquisitions Dark Matter and Wynonna Earp. (A decision on Wynonna Earp has not yet been determined.) Up next, Syfy has anthology Channel Zero due in October and Incorporated, set for the fall.
