Helix won’t be back for a third season.
Syfy Channel has decided to end the winter series after two seasons, Deadline reports.
The series debuted to 1.82 million viewers in January 2014, and performed well in DVR-playback. But Season Two suffered a significant drop, losing 59 percent of its total audience. The April 10 finale reportedly tied a series low, with just 440,000 live viewers.
Helix starred Billy Campbell as Dr. Alan Farragut, head of a team of C.D.C. scientists who investigated a terrifying new disease outbreak at a remote Arctic research station in the show’s first season. This year the setting shifted to the jungle island of St. Germain, where another outbreak was shrouded in the mystery of a religious cult isolated on the island.
