Dark Matter was a new favorite of mine. Have you thought of doing a made-for-tv movie that would close the story out? Something like Farscape did? Would you consider doing a GoFundMe campaign to raise funds for it?

I just started watching this show recently and finding out it got cancelled makes me so sad! It’s such an awesome show. I wish there was something we could do to bring it back.

SyFy is the worst enemy of decent Sci-Fi series and it’s fans.
Stargate franchise, Caprica, Firefly, The expanse (thanks Amazon!), etc. Dark Matter was a series that was really well made with a consistent story and very interesting characters. Proving that sometimes simple things are the best.
Actors were amazing also.
All the best for all.
Hope in the future, many more producers stop seeing SyFy as their only option.
If no series can be done to make a closure, a movie would be great.
Those black ships really made an amazing twist in the plot.

Joe,
What’s the possibility of doing movie spinoff starting at the end of the three seasons.
Is there a possibility?
I know the main character actors have had to move on but maybe?

Joe, I hope you get this OK… I love Dark Matter – probably the best sci-fi series I have ever seen (I am 59 and have watched a lot of sci-fi). It is absolutely crazy that the series was cancelled! I did, however, have the pleasure of meeting 3 and the android at London Comic Con, and recently 4, 5 and 6 at the Starfury Convention in the UK, and I was privileged to have Alex sign the inside of my Japanese box (just like the one in the series). Mostly, I just want to say ‘thank you’ for creating an excellent series – I have watched all 3 series at least 3 times and thoroughly enjoyed them.

I wasn’t bummed out about the cliffhanger – it was an awesome season finale. We just want more. Great characters, story and loved the Pinkerton soundtrack! Thanks for the show!

Just finished the last episode and came searching for answers (hoping to find mention of a resurrection). Great series and will check back here often in case you ever need signatures to petition another entity to pickup where SyFy screwed up. Loved the SG cross overs too. Great story line and great characters. Work to be proud of.

I know the main actors have by now moved on but is their any chance of an animated series to finish the storyline or a book/graphic novel. It was a great series.

I agree with the other comment you should do a workup of a movie. A full theater movie that is. Dark matter has a large following and a very strong one at that.

I’m guessing you have the full writes for the rest of the episodes. With all the cast actors working other projects a single movie might fit their schedules., and letting their writers finish out the script with your right of approval as to general plot would allow some control of plot line, producer, and director.

Why can’t Prodigy offer to sell some distribution rights to one of the seasons to the new financier? That way, Prodigy will still get royalties off (for example) 2 seasons but Netflix would have the incentive to push for a season 4. Give them a dog in the race.

I have finished watching Season 1-2 two years ago and just delighted to get season 3 via Netflix, only to find it’s abruptly ended without proper conclusion sad Hope some network revive it soon. It’s one of my favorite shows.

My husband and I just finished season 3. We were so hooked up in this show when he discovered it. It has been our weekly task and kind of a bonding to watch the show. Sad it was cancelled. Hate that there is no closure. My heart literally broke altho I already know there is no season 4 but still chose to watch it. I hope it will come back. Its such a great show, no boring moments.

Joseph Mallozzi

Hey Janice,

Thanks for watching. In case you missed it: https://josephmallozzi.com/2018/06/25/dark-matter-virtual-season-4-episode-4-02/

I am unfortunately showing up late, having just bingewatched DM for the 2nd time, what a fabulous series and how sad that neither Netflix or SciFy realized what a great show they had on their hands. While I am ever hopeful that the show will see some sort of resurrection are their comic/graphic novels etc. where the adventures of the crew can still be followed?

I offered up a beat by beat breakdown of what I had planned for the fourth season opening two-parter: https://josephmallozzi.com/2018/06/25/dark-matter-virtual-season-4-episode-4-02/

I don’t get it. The show’s been canceled nearly 2 years ago and you never found a way to finalize the story through comic-books. There’s a HUGE fanbase out there, I’m sure everything you spend on creating comic books, or at least YOUTUBE videos will pay you back. Hell with scify or amazon, make it to internet.
Series could be cheaper, actors could be different, but the story needs to continue.
Think about it: 1mln views on youtube is about $1000 for a beginner channel.
You’ll have more than that (e.g. each episode 1mln watches weekly x 13 episodes per season, that’s minimum of $10.000+ a week for a lifetime)
Let the series be ad-watch funded.
You should have earned enough to produce at least one episode.
Hope you hear what I’m saying smile
We are the Raza!

Can’t believe how SyFy betrayed Dark Matter’s fans. A show by a person who created Stargate previously, a show with perfect and unique story, a show that sneaked an ancient Japanese-like race to the space clashes and it looked so cool, a show which makes success from great plot instead of just stupid effects like superhero movies that include little to no real story. I loved it and they left it at most tight moments. It is an irony since Dark Matter is also a story of evil corporations clashing each other and one of them ended production for most likely the very same reason why those corporations were evil – money. I wish enthusiast led SyFy instead.

Even worse that I have recently learnt the same about other show I loved.
