The sophomore drama will not return for Season 3.
April 29, 2015
It is being reported that Syfy has cancelled Helix after two seasons. The dramatic thriller aired its final episode earlier this month, where it drew series-low viewership numbers that are in stark contrast to the healthy audience it attracted just a year ago.

SyFy has a history of making bad decisions when it comes to cancelling great shows. Example: Eureka was probably the best thing they ever made yet they cancelled it. and while Helix season two was not the seat gripper that Season one was they still should have had a season 3 to tie up loose ends and then end the show if they wanted to rather than leaving the crap ending that they did with multiple loose ends.

For those people that have Netflix and want to see Helix continue they do take requests to buy the rights to shows into consideration and you can msg them on instant chat and ask them to consider buying the rights and producing more of the show. the more people that ask the more likely they will try to buy it from SyFy

I preferred the second series but agree it was all being done to go into a third series I was hoping all would be answered in this one but hey my gripe is that too many new series get cancelled without being given a chance to get a cult status remember star trek for instance was cancelled as being No good after three seasons and now it is iconic. I believe all new shows should be made to have s ending be it a final series or an extended last final episode like hell om wheels was going to be cancelled but decided to finish a last series this is how it should be the people with the powerful the public and we are getting sick of this. Might be time to cancel subscription I think...this is the opinion of the UK

I really enjoyed the first season as well my dad did too. But when I found out that the second season wouldn't take place in the Arctic landscape that the first season did that just was really disappointing to me.

like all the other comments above, I loved the first season. The second, not so much, and 30 years later? Why?

The first episode was great. Loved the mood and the camera work and story unfolding kept you on the edge of you seat. The next few episodes still kept you interested and by the time you had watched the first half of the season you kept watching in spite of the increasingly unbelievable story, poor acting but you hope that it's just a lull and the magic that drew you in will return - but it doesn't. I watched the entire first season with only minor regret for not better spending my time. I could only manage 45 minutes of S1E1 before I gave up on this series. I'm not surprised that it's cancelled, I wish that they could have continued to mimic the look and feel of the first few episodes, had they managed that, this show would be around for another season. Thank you for the first episode, it was great.

It seems so much like a lot of the season was a set-up for a third season that it almost made those scenes pointless. For example, all the stuff in the future with the cabin, corpses around the dinner table, etc.
My thoughts early on with the '30 years later' stuff was 'What about Alan, he won't still be alive, will he?' and other related queries that made me wonder why we were 'killing time' with all the future nonsense rather than get stuck in with the present day action.
A lot of the season seemed to be based around simple plot points that then became very long and drawn-out in the story telling yet were sorted out in a few seconds of screen time in the finale.
Being too clever setting up the next season seems to have brought down the show so that ironically we probably won't get a 'next season'
