Syfy has canceled the science-fiction series Defiance after its third season, but its transmedia partner, Defiance the MMO, will continue to run after it.
Defiance was originally developed as a project in which the television show and the MMO would share the same universe, and events in one who affect the other. The show was based in St. Louis while the MMO was based in San Francisco.
According to SyFy's press release, "Defiance was a truly groundbreaking series, delivering an immersive, cross-platform experience that transcended the television screen in a way that viewers had never seen before. We are incredibly proud of the work of the extraordinary cast, writers, artists and designers — and especially showrunner Kevin Murphy — who together brought the rich world of Defiance to life over its three season arc."
Defiance was developed by Trion Worlds and launched back in 2013 - check out GameWatcher's review.
