Syfy Cancels Anthology Thriller ‘Channel Zero’

Syfy has opted against a fifth season of anthology series “Channel Zero.” Debuting on October 11, 2016, each season of “Channel Zero” was a standalone offering, based on a Creepypasta tale. The first season, “Candle Cove,” was followed up by “No-End House,” “Butcher’s Block” and “Dream Door.”

Said creator Nick Antosca on Instagram: “After 4 seasons, Channel Zero is no more at SYFY. I loved making this show and I would have loved to do more… but I can’t complain too much about doing 4 stories I loved with people who I loved working with. People like our writers, our actors, our extraordinary crew, the artists who contributed, our editors and post team, our composer Jeff Russo, our team at Syfy and UCP. And especially the four awesome directors, Craig Macneill, Steven Piet, Arkasha Stevenson, and Evan Katz.”

“And before all that, the authors of the original creepypasta stories. Kris Straub, Brian Russell, Kerry Hammond, and Charlotte Bywater. I’m deeply grateful for this experience,” he added. “Especially to everybody who watched and talked about and wrote about the show. There are stories we didn’t get to tell and creatures you didn’t get to see, but still might.   Meanwhile, the first 3 seasons are currently on @shudder, and the 4th season will be soon. Enjoy.”

The now final episode of “Channel Zero” aired on October 31, 2018. A total of 24 episodes were produced.
