Was curious if anyone is watching season 3 at the moment.
Im finding this season to be the most exciting and action packed, although this is probably due to the fact that the majority of the main characters have met up as a group aboard the Roci with fewer separate plot threads to follow as everything has become pretty focused on stopping the war and pursuing the protomolicule.

I am watching. I've been enjoying the series from the beginning. Not sure I see this season as better. I've been a little worn down by the relentlessness of war. Of course, that's the point, but it's hard going.

I have.  I really love this show, and am very sad this is the last season.

I know I only just heard today as have been quite busy lately, I was pretty much "NOOOOOOOOOO Its just getting started!"
Fingers crossed that Netflix or Amazon pick this up.

I hope someone does pick it up, although I would like the warring powers to reach a truce and unite to combat the threat from whatever intelligence is guiding the protomolecule. I do miss Miller, though.

Sadly humanities efforts to deal with the protomolicule is largely short sighted, muddled and inept even after it completes its 'work' which I can't wait to see. Hopefully we will get to see it by the end of the season.

I gather (at second hand) that one of the producers has said the season has a conclusion that wraps things up reasonably well, that could somewhat work as either a season or a series finale, rather than being a huge mid-story cliffhanger like the previous two finales. Maybe they were aware that renewal was iffy.

I love this show, and will be sad to lose it, though there's that effort underway to get someone other than SyFy to carry it. However, there will eventually be nine books, with the eighth out late this year (and then the Corey duo will write a different series after that), so at least we'll get all of its original form.
