Syfy Renews Alphas

Syfy has renewed the superhuman drama Alphas for a 13-episode second season set to air in 2012.

Created by X-Men: The Last Stand screenwriter Zak Penn and Michael Karnow, the series follows a team of ordinary citizens with extraordinary abilities that investigates unusual cases that the CIA, FBI and Pentagon have been unable, or unwilling, to solve. It stars David Strathairn, Malik Yoba, Warren Christie, Laura Mennell, Ryan Cartwright and Azita Ghanizada.

The July 11 premiere of Alphas was Syfy’s most-watched series debut in two years, and it continues to perform solidly following Warehouse 13.

Alphas‘ smart, innovative approach to a superhero franchise has clearly caught on with our audience,” Mark Stern, Syfy’s president of original content, said in a statement. “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.”
