US space drama Nightflyers has been cancelled after just one season.
Based on the novella from George R.R. Martin the show was produced by Syfy in the US but screened in Australia via Netflix.
The series followed a crew of eight scientists, led by a reclusive captain, on a spaceship called The Nightflyer. The tight-knit group set out on an expedition to discover and make contact alien life, but when a series of horrifying and violent events occur, they begin to question each other and their camaraderie becomes a fight for survival.
Despite being the most expensive series Syfy had ever developed its finale drew only 420,000 live viewers, a drop-off from 623,000 for the premiere.
