A sci-fi drama series that wrapped its second season earlier this month has been canceled. The series is the thriller “Helix,” with Syfy announcing the show’s cancellation Wednesday, according to media reports.
The series, which starred Billy Campbell, Hiroyuki Sanada and Kyra Zagorsky, aired its final episode April 10. The Sony Pictures Television program, produced along with Muse Entertainment Enterprises, Tall Ship Productions, Lynda Obst Productions and Kaji Productions, drew a series-low 440,000 total viewers for the finale, after averaging 563,000 during season two, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The numbers were well below the turnout for season one, when the show saw its audience climb from 1.8 million total viewers to 2.8 million in live-plus-3 DVR figures, THR notes.
