SyFy cancels Sanctuary

http://www.multichannel.com/article/...ur_Seasons.php

Syfy confirmed it will not be bringing action series Sanctuary back for a fifth season.

In a statement, Mark Stern, President, Syfy Original Content and Co-Head, Universal Cable Productions, said: "We're honored to have been part of this incredible series. In addition to garnering unmatched devotion by fans worldwide, Sanctuary was a bona fide trailblazer, setting new standards with its highly innovative production techniques -- including pioneering green screen and RED camera technology -- and Emmy-nominated visual effects. It's been an amazing ride and we look forward to our next project with Amanda Tapping, Martin Wood and Damian Kindler."

In the statement, Kindler, Tapping and Wood said: "We couldn't be prouder of the four seasons we made on Sanctuary. We are very grateful for the opportunity and must acknowledge the wonderful work from our cast and crew, the support from our studio, the Beedie Group -- who have been with us right from the start, the networks who worked so hard with us each week, and most of all the fans...we owe so much to the fans.
I never could get into the show but I feel bad for all it's fans.

Hardly a surprise. The show had been on the world's longest "hiatus."

Re: SyFy cancels Sanctuary

Bummer, I was hoping they would go for one more season. the Season 4 finale, really set a possible season 5 for some very interesting stories. Fortunately, S4 finale also works quite well for a Series Finale, so, although sad, at least we don't see it end on a horrible cliff hanger, like Farscape S4 (If Peacekeeper Wars had never been made)

Last I heard, the Producers do still have the option, if SyFy passes, to find someone else to air another season. Not sure how that stands today though.

Yeah, the lack of any announcement either way for all this time wasn't a promising sign.

It had a decent run. Not my favorite Syfy show, but I still enjoyed the ride.

Yeah, I'm fine with the season four finale as an ending. Though, I think season five would have been fun to watch.

The real question is when is SyFy going to change it's name to the Not SyFy channel.

Especially with the new underground Sanctuary.

They did, when they changed their name to SyFy. That's kinda like Diamonelle (or however it's spelled) as a name for a Faux Diamond

I think I'm now down to just Merlin as far as what I watch on SyFy

Hardly a surprise, especially since most of the behind the scenes staff are now working on that new Primeval spin-off.

Re: SyFy cancels Sanctuary

Yeah, not a big surprise, but still disappointing. I loved this show. But we did get a nice solid ending that still lets us know that the characters and the Sanctuary continue on. Perhaps there will be reunion movies or novels.

Or NetFlix.

Re: SyFy cancels Sanctuary

I really enjoyed Sanctuary, and am sad to see it go. Not surprised though, and I do agree that the S4 finale was a pretty good series finale. I remember thinking after watching it that I could easily see it ending there, and apparently it did.

That pretty much sums up the SyFyllis network, so this latest move isn't remotely surprising.

Well I had a feeling this was going to happen. At least the series ended with some closure.

Now the only shows left on SyFy worth watching are Warehouse 13 and Being Human, but probably not for much longer.
