I work in a very strange, unpredictable business. Three years ago, I was 100% certain that Dark Matter was dead and I was poised to go into production on another show I had developed. Within the span of 24 hours, that other show was dead and Dark Matter was suddenly a go. You just…never know.
The fact is, despite my fairly positive outlook on the subject, there’s not guarantee Dark Matter will come back for a fourth season – and no guarantee that if it does, I’ll be coming back with it. I mean, who knows? Three months from now, I could be all like –
So it’s always a good idea to hedge your bets. Hope for the best but prepare for the worst. And, as far as worst goes, it probably won’t be all that bad: maybe another show, maybe L.A., maybe the impetus I need to finally cash out of the Vancouver real estate market and buy that place in Tokyo!
Time will tell.
Also, ratings! So get the word out. Dark Matter premieres on Syfy and Space Channel on Friday June 9th with a double episode premiere starting at 8:00 p.m. (after which the show returns to its regular 9:00 p.m. time slot for June 16th). And then Monday June 12th at 8:00 p.m., Syfy UK will be airing their own season 3 double bill.
AND, immediately following that double bill, will be the premiere of After Dark, Dark Matter’s very own after show…
“Each episode brings together cast, crew, fans and experts to discuss storylines, go behind the scenes, and debate what’s next for the series’ protagonists.”
