For many Marc Bendavid fans and viewers who asked lots of questions as to why he was missing from the cast list for the next episode, the death of his character ‘One’ in the series came as a shock to them.


Some say he was written out for storytelling reasons. The executive producer of the Dark Matter series, Joseph Mallozzi in an interview said he explained to Marc the reason why his name was missing from the cast list.

He said that even though the character One in the series is gone, Marc still stands the chance to play two characters on the show cause even though the character One is gone, Jace Corso is still out there.

Syfy, the cable channel that was in charge of the show later canceled it because it had so many other scripted sci-fi series that were running. So ending the show really had nothing to do with the show itself.
