Shortly after NBC cancelled The Event, it was reported that talks were underway to try to find a new home for the drama. There was apparently interest from some cable and digital outlets and possibly even Netflix. Executive producer Steve Stark noted that work to save the show had the full support of the Universal Media Studios.
Today, Deadline reported that talks were underway with Syfy (also owned by NBC-Universal) to continue The Event as a mini-series — if the financial details could be worked out. If that performed well enough, the cable channel could launch another season of the drama. If that’s true, it sounds like the mini-series wouldn’t completely finish the story so fans would potentially be left with unanswered questions yet again.
Now, a message from SyFy’s Twitter account seems to shoot down that possibility. The tweet from a senior executive at the cable channel reads, “To answer some questions I’ve been getting, at this time we have no plans to pick up The Event.”
What do you think? Could The Event still find a home at Syfy or elsewhere? Or, realistically, do you think the show is dead?

I cant count the shows I have started watching and absolutely LOVED and then they were cancels mid sentence..I wish they would listen to the fans instead of some idiot CEO sitting at corporate flipping paper clips into a trashcan….
Most of the shows that are cancelled after one seasons have plot line evolutions that are a bit too close to the evil big corporation mass population control truth. As of 2021, there are a about a dozen like that: Earth 2 in 1994 (everything that’s happening now), Limestone (MK Ultra), Messiah (promotes compassion and self honesty, Emergence (nano particles are in the Covid 19 injections and changing those who receive it at the DNA level), Debris (fosters introspection and shows the intel community for what it is and is instructional for a resistance movement), Big Sky (empowered rural communities… Read more »
