It seems Syfy has given up the ghost. The Ghost Wars TV show on Syfy has been cancelled after one season. Rob Owen, of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports he has confirmed the Ghost Wars cancellation. Since there will be no second season, the season one finale episode, “…My Soul to Keep” will also serve as the Ghost Wars TV series finale.
A Syfy horror drama, Ghost Wars stars Avan Jogia, Vincent D’Onofrio, Kim Coates, Kandyse McClure, Kristin Lehman, Meat Loaf Aday, Sarah Giles, Allison James, Elise Gatien, and Sonja Bennett. The supernatural saga unfolds in isolated Port Moore, Alaska, which has been overrun by paranormal activity. It centers on local loner Roman Mercer (Jogia), a troubled psychic whose ability to see the dead has been the bane of his existence. The residents of Port Moore tend to look upon Roman as an outcast. In order to rescue them from the mass haunting which could be their undoing, Roman must first conquer their narrow-minded preconceptions, as well as the skeletons in his own closet.
