Syfy Cancels 'Hunters' After One Season

Syfy has canceled the drama "Hunters" after just one season, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The series, which premiered April 11, will air its final episode on Tuesday.

Based on the bestselling novel "Alien Hunter" by Whitley Strieber, "Hunters" follows a detective who accidentally uncovers an alien terrorist cell while searching for his missing wife. The conspiracy thriller series starred Nathan Phillips ("Wolf Creek") and Britne Oldford ("Ravenswood"). It was created by Natalie Chaidez ("Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles") and executive produced by Chaidez, Emile Levisetti ("Hope & Faith") and Gale Anne Hurd ("The Walking Dead").

"Hunters" was panned by critics, receiving a zero rating on Rotten Tomatoes. It also averaged just 316,000 viewers, leading the series to be moved from its initial time slot at Monday at 10 p.m. to Tuesdays at midnight for its final six episodes.

Although "Hunters" is no more, fans of the concept can continue to follow the series through Strieber's books, which include "Alien Hunter," and two sequels, "Alien Hunter: Underworld" and "Alien Hunter: The White House: A Flynn Carroll Thriller."
