Science fiction drama series, Colony, on Universal TV, cancelled after 3 seasons after big fall in ratings.

The science fiction drama series, Colony on NBCUniversal International Networks' Universal TV (DStv 117) has been cancelled after 3 seasons following a big fall in viewership.

The series with Josh Holloway and Sarah Wayne Callies started in 2015 in the United States, with NBCUniversal International acquiring and scheduling the first and second season back-to-back on Universal TV since March this year for South Africa and Africa.

The show's ratings fell during the third season that saw the production move from Los Angeles to Vancouver. Colony was produced by Legendary Television and Universal Cable Productions and was created and executive produced by Carlton Cuse and Ryan Condal.

The third season of Colony finally introduced a first-look at the "aliens" who took over Earth and segregated populations - but it turned out to be a ... robot!

It wasn't "aliens" who invaded Earth but robots - scared and fleeing from an even more threatening as-yet-unseen alien race. With Colony's abrupt cancellation there won't be any conclusion to the story.
