The new year brings new shows, and of course that also means new cancellations. On Wednesday Syfy announced that after 4 seasons of terrifying fun, “Channel Zero” will be no more. Created by Nick Antosca, Channel Zero was a unique horror anthology based upon internet short stories, known as creepypastas. On his Instagram account, Nick thanked those who made the four seasons a reality.
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.
The most recent season “Channel Zero: Dream Door” premiered as mini-event, airing over 6 consecutive days leading up to Halloween. Each season featured a different creepypasta story, cast, director, and thrills. Fans of the series are hoping that another network or streaming service will pick up the show, and there are already petitions circulating the internet in the hopes of “Channel Zero” being saved. The first three seasons of “Channel Zero” are currently available for your viewing pleasure on Shudder, and the 4th and final season will be available there soon.
In recent years Syfy has revamped it’s original content programming, and with new heavy hitters like George R.R Martin’s Nightflyers airing in December and Deadly Class kicking off 2019 – it isn’t surprising to see the network making some changes to it’s lineup. Other Syfy Originals include the graphic novel adaptation Happy!, the mega-hit The Magicians, the fan favorite cult classic Wynonna Earp, and the upcoming final season of Killyjoys.
