Syfy has some good news for fans of their freshmen super-series Alphas, today. The cable channel announced that they’re bringing the series back for a second season, ordering up thirteen more episodes.

I fell behind on Alphas early in the first season, however, what I did see of it, I liked. Now it’s just a matter of getting caught up! Fortunately, I’ll have time to do that between now and whenever Season 2 begins. Syfy announced today that they’ve given Alphas a 13-episode order for Season 2, which they expect to air in 2012.

Airing on Monday nights (10:00 p.m. ET/PT) on Syfy, Alphas follows a group of people with extraordinary abilities. They’re brought together by neurologist and psychiatrist Dr. Lee Rosen (David Straithairn) to investigate crime cases involving other people with similar “Alpha” abilities. Since the series’ debut back in July, the show has averaged 3.3 million total viewers (when factoring in Live +7 DVR data). That’s a pretty solid showing for a Syfy show, so a second season order isn’t exactly a surprise, but it’s great news if you’re a fan of the show.

There are three more episodes left of Alphas for Season 1, the last of which will air on September 26, 2011.
