Dark Matter Season 4 wont be un-cancelled by Netflix or any other outlet.
Admitting defeat, co-creator Joseph Mallozzi states that “contractual issues” have extinguished all hope of the space drama’s resurrection:
All good things must come to an end – some much sooner than expected. Sadly, such is the case for Dark Matter. Despite word of the cancellation by syfy, fandom rose up and gave us new hope. We sought to buck the odds and find our little show a new home. But unfortunately, I just learned that our final option has proven unworkable due to contractual issues. It’s a shame because these potential saviors reached out to me and offered a creative solution that, had it worked, would have been a sci-fi fan’s dream scenario. But, alas, it was not to be. In time, I would love to tell you all about it.
However, Mallozzi is hoping to revive Dark Matter Season 4 in comic book form:
As for what’s next for Dark Matter? My first choice would be to complete the story in comic book format where it originally began, but I’ve just started to look into the possibility now. Beyond that, I’m not sure.
Thank you to my cast and crew who made it all possible.
And an especially HUGE THANK YOU to all of you, the viewers and fans, who made Dark Matter one of syfy’s most watched shows and who rallied and made your voices heard these past few weeks.
I said it before and I’ll say it again… You all deserved better.
Were you hoping Netflix or another outlet would resurrect Dark Matter Season 4? Would you follow the story to a comic book format?
