Bummer, the Ancient Egyptian Period Drama with John-Ryhs Davies, I was really looking forward to this one (more than anything else I can think of offhand, unless there's a Space Opera actually in the works)

There is actually a Space Opera in the works on SyFy of all networks. It's based on a book series, the 4th installment just came out this month. I've read the first and I liked it a lot.

As for Hieroglyph, I didn't have the highest expectations for this one, but I was at least interested and was hoping it would exceed my expectations. So that's a bummer.

Ah...OK, I thought there was at least one still bubbling (Blake's 7 seems to have disappeared for now, But, I think there's a Streaming Exclusive Space Opera still being worked on)

Yea, I was excited for the Ancient Egypt Period-ness and having faith in John Rhys-Davies' choices

Re: Hieroglyph is Dead

I was watching Heiroglyph and I have to admit I couldn't make much sense of the series concept or where they were supposed to be going with it. I'm not entirely surprised they pulled the plug, TBH.

The upside is that my Facebook feed is now free of Africentric Cheikh Anta Diop fanboys ranting about why the cast isn't Black (for varying definitions thereof). Not going to miss that one bit.

Syfy has ordered two space shows slated to start airing next year: The Expanse, which dansigal mentioned, and Killjoys. They also have Ascension as a miniseries slated to premiere in the fall this year. Halo is in development as a streaming exclusive for Xbox Live.

First thing I thought of, too. Fox now has it down to a science. They are so efficient at cancelling stuff, shows get cancelled even before the episodes air.

Oh, and danisgal, you are supposed to have some kind actual COMMENTARY to spur discussion, not just post random links and run. That is a big no-no.

I wonder if we'll ever get to see the pilot?
