Alphas will get a second season. Syfy gave the green light to a sophomore season of the show yesterday.
The network has ordered 13 episodes to premiere some time in 2012. The series has been performing well in its Monday time slot in its rookie season, averaging 3.3 million total viewers when DVR rdata is included.
“Alphas’ smart, innovative approach to a superhero franchise has clearly caught on with our audience,” said Mark Stern, president of original content at Syfy and co-head of original content of Universal Cable Productions. “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.”
