13 new episodes of the sci-fi series have been ordered for 2012.
September 7, 2011
Syfy has announced that freshman series Alphas has been renewed for a second season. The network has ordered 13 additional episodes of the superhuman drama for 2012.
"Alphas' smart, innovative approach to a superhero franchise has clearly caught on with our audience," said Syfy's president of original content, Mark Stern. "From the first-rate writing to the outstanding cast lead by David Strathairn, we're very proud of what was achieved in its first season and look forward to seeing this series fulfill even more of its creative potential in a second season."
Alphas, which premiered in July, follows a team of investigators with superhuman powers out to thwart evildoers with similar abilities. The show has aired eight of its 11 first-season episodes thus far, averaging 3.3 million total viewers (Live + 7 data). Its debut holds the distinction of being Syfy's most-watched original scripted series premiere in two years.

Yes I have to agree that the show could have been better however I hope the second season beacomes a good one. Yet when good shows with brilliant actors (SGU) gets cancelled and this continues you do have to think, what the hell they where thinking.

I've just stopped watching SyFy all together. I have been enjoying Terra Nova.

While I like the show, I cannot believe that Caprica and SGU were cancelled and we get this and wrestling. With so many good shows getting cancelled I am about ready to stop watching TV altogether since most of what I enjoy gets cancelled.

I am glad to hear this show was renewed. The first episode was a bit lame, but ... the show got better and better each episode. Can hardly wait till season two. :)

I like the show. It's much better to watch actors pretend to have super powers than to watch grown men run around a square in their underwear, pretending to beat each other up. Ahem, wrastlin.
