NIGHTFLYERS Cancelled At Syfy After One Season


Horror Nightflyers based on the novella by George R.R. Martin has been cancelled by Syfy after its first season.

The series followed a crew of eight scientists, led by a reclusive captain, on a spaceship called The Nightflyer. The tight-knit group set out on an expedition to discover and make contact alien life, but when a series of horrifying and violent events occur, they begin to question each other and their camaraderie becomes a fight for survival.

Nightflyers was produced by Universal Cable Productions and was adapted for TV by Jeff Buhler. The show was the most expensive production ever for Syfy so this cancellation must be disappointing after such a gamble. The show released the entire season online with the premiere earning 623,000 live viewers with subsequent episodes earning 420,000.
