Prodigy Pictures is pleased to announce principal photography has begun on the third season of the sci-fi series Dark Matter. Based on the graphic novel Dark Matter, created by Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie, of the Stargate franchise, the 13 one-hour episodes are slated to premiere in 2017 on Syfy in the U.S. and Space in Canada.
