It is being reported that Syfy has cancelled Nightflyers after just one season. Word comes two months after the show's now-final episode.

A co-production with Netflix, the series premiered in December with a 10-episode run. Its initial prospects appeared promising, arriving with a big-budget production and a story based on George R. R. Martin's 1980 novella of the same name. Critical and viewer response, though, ultimately failed to live up to its lofty aspirations. Reviews were decidedly mixed and ratings ended up on the soft side.

Nightflyers takes place in the year 2093, with a team of scientists aboard an advanced ship called the Nightflyer embarks on a journey to find other life forms. Their mission brings them to the edge of the solar system, but a horror already on their ship will take them to the edge of insanity.
