When it comes to sci-fi TV series, one of those brilliant masterpieces is the Colony web series. The show had three seasons that aired in 2016, 2017, and 2018. In 2018, the USA network broke the bad news that there will be no Colony Season 4.
As of now, no official reasons have come to light regarding the cancellation. However, there are some believable speculations regarding the same.
The viewer count of the show had declined drastically from 2.2 million to 1.3 million. Moreover, some speculate that the show’s storyline had lost its focus. This is because Carlton Cuse, the co-creator of the show, has diverted his focus towards his Jack Ryan TV series.
Some also suggest the reason behind the cancellation to be the change in production location. The production was moved to Vancouver from Los Angeles.
The above points provide a rough idea about the cancellation of the show. However, nothing has been communicated verbally by the USA network. However, the executive producer of the show, Ryan Condal, said that the reasons are complicated.
Will Colony 4 air anytime in the future?
Well, there are fans that have launched a petition to convince the USA Network. However, the odds of the show starting again are pretty low at the moment.
Colony 4 can only be revived if it is picked up by other streaming services like Netflix or Amazon Prime. This is possible, but the main deterrent in this is the high production cost of the show.
Some suggest that the Colony web series should be given an appropriate ending via a movie. We don’t know what will happen, but as of now, there is no season 4 of Colony.
If you are a die-hard fan of the science fiction TV series, you can rewatch the previous seasons. Moreover, let’s hope that streaming services like Netflix or Amazon Prime will pick up the show.
