Stargate Universe was axed by the Syfy network late last week.
The remaining 10 episodes will air in the US spring.
About a million people watched each episode of the first season about half what SG-1 and Atlantis pulled in their heyday.
The cancellation was the second to come from Syfy in recent months. It ended Caprica in October after only one season, but will debut the US version of Being Human in mid January and it recently greenlit Alphas and Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome.
Syfy has had a Stargate series –SG-1, Atlantis or Universe– since 2002.
Aside from premiere episodes on the SciFi network in Australia, ELEVEN will also screen the series.
