Syfy Renews ‘Alphas’ for a Second Season

Syfy has announced via a press release the renewal of its new superhero show Alphas for a second season of thirteen episodes. Mark Stern, the network's president of original programming, explains the decision. "Alphas' smart, innovative approach to a superhero franchise has clearly caught on with our audience." He then goes on to add, "From the first-rate writing to the outstanding cast lead by David Strathairn, we're very proud of what was achieved in its first season and look forward to seeing this series fulfill even more of its creative potential in a second season."

Alphas' first episode on July 11, 2011 became Syfy's most-watched original scripted series premiere in two years.

The sci-fi series follows a particular group of Alphas — people with superhuman abilities — who help the government investigate crimes or events involving other people with Alpha abilities. The team is led by Dr. Rosen (David Strathairn), a neurologist and psychiatrist who guides everybody through the intricacies of Alpha abilities.

Alphas airs on Mondays at 10/9c and will conclude its maiden season on September 26.
