The drama ends after three seasons.
October 16, 2015
Syfy has cancelled Defiance after its third season. The drama, which premiered in 2013, drew solid ratings for the network during its first two seasons but saw a significant dip in viewership this past summer.
Defiance aired a total of 38 episodes over the course of its run.

80 percent of consumer are women and that's who they make shows for or cancel.

The reason the crappy shows live on is because they are cheap to make. Defiance was fun, different, and had good potential but in sure it wasn't cheap to make relative to face off or coast hunters. Its a shame that we can't seem to get invested in decent shows. Sci-fi fans are so starved for shows that they'll watch anything decent but not fake sci-fi like ghost hunters horror crap.

I am done with Syfy. How many years of this? It all started with the name change from SciFi. Syfy is just ridiculous. There are too many other quality content providers to waste any more time with this network.

This show was cast with a lot of great talent and I will be looking forward to seeing some of them resurface on other shows in the future ... if I can recognize them. The makeup on this show will stay memorable to me for a long time. The music was incredible and the characters were unique and original. I will miss it a lot but am becoming more and more appreciative of favorite shows going out on a high note instead of beating their storyline to a slow uncomfortable death for years like is done with shows like Supernatural.

Unreal. They finally get a good, solid, well-done Science Fiction show going -- and they kill it for one down season? Could they look at potential external factors? Maybe consider some options before killing it? And it's still one of their top-rated shows??? Yeah, this is how you lose viewers. If you're just going to kill shows like this, I won't bother to spend any time tuned in and getting invested in any more of their shows. Has anything besides SG-1 ever been given more than 3 seasons on this channel? Poor decision making.

Loved this show, was hoping against hope it would come back. Seems like shows we like just get cancelled. Did like Dark Matter, but Defiance was much better, you got to care about the characters. Please reconsider

After watching last season's finale, the storyline seemed like they were preparing for a cancellation. Really did enjoy the show though.
