Syfy Cancels ‘Nightflyers’ After 1 Season
Nights are no longer flying, as US channel Syfy opts not to renew ‘Nightflyers‘ for Season 2.
‘Nightflyers’ followed eight maverick scientists and a powerful telepath who embarked on an expedition to the edge of our solar system aboard The Nightflyer – a ship with a small tightknit crew and a reclusive captain – in the hope of making contact with alien life. But when terrifying and violent events begin to take place they start to question each other – and surviving the journey proves harder than anyone thought.
The 10-episode series starred Gretchen Mol (‘Boardwalk Empire’) as Dr. Agatha Matheson alongside Eoin Macken (‘The Night Shift’) as Karl D’Branin, David Ajala (‘Fast & Furious 6’) as Roy Eris, Sam Strike (‘EastEnders’) as Thale, Maya Eshet (‘Teen Wolf’) as Lommie, Angus Sampson (‘Fargo’) as Rowan, Jodie Turner-Smith (‘The Last Ship’) as Melantha Jhirl and Brían F. O’Byrne (‘Million Dollar Baby’) as Auggie.
Martin serves as an executive producer along with Jeff Buhler who wrote the adaptation for television and served as the showrunner. Brian Nelson, Mike Cahill and Andrew McCarthy also served as executive producers, alongside Gene Klein, David Bartis and Doug Liman from Hypnotic; Alison Rosenzweig and Michael Gaeta of Gaeta Rosenzweig Films; and Lloyd Ivan Miller and Alice P. Neuhauser of Lloyd Ivan Miller Productions.
‘Nightflyers‘ can be seen on Netflix in the UK.
