Though the network attempted to build a foundation on top of which a deeper extended series could be erected, Syfy decided not to move forward with a full first season of Ascension.

Ascension, the new three-part minseries from Syfy, is set to debut on December 15th, and it looks to be a thrilling and inventive watch. Check out this behind-the-scenes first look at the thriller, which teases murder and mystery.
Syfy’s limited series, Ascension has been in the works since last spring. Today, we are finally seeing footage from the large ship, 50 years later. It’s large and well-lit and beautiful, but there’s also violence and terror present.
We’re super excited for Syfy’s return to spacefaring miniseries with the upcoming thriller Ascension, and we’ve been eagerly anticipating some more casting news to prove that the project isn’t just some Megashark-induced fever dream. Thankfully, Cougar Town’s Brian Van Holt is joining the previously cast Tricia Helfer (Battlestar Galactica) for a lead role.
Syfy revealed the very first trailer for the series, which offers a chilling look at the alternate reality behind the central concept. At least, it offers a vision of what the show might look like, since I’m not sure if everything in this trailer is actually from the show.
If you're casting a role described as "beautiful, manipulative and dangerous," Tricia Helfer would be a pretty ideal candidate for the part. See her performance as Six in Battlestar Galactica for evidence of that. So, it's particularly fitting that Helfer should return to Syfy for a "beautiful, manipulative and dangerous" role in the cable channel's six hour event series Ascension.
