As far as I've heard, the producers had every expectation of an 11th season, and SciFi announced their decision not to renew during the filming of "Bad Guys", so I suppose we might have had more arc episodes towards the end had they known sooner. I'm not too fond of "Family Ties" myself, but I liked "Talion" and "Dominion".
es, I remember the producers were planning or another season of the first time since like season 4.
Syfy canceled the show right before the premiere party for the 200th episode. I rmember everyone being pissed about the timing.
