Not imaginary. Not a friend.
The next installment of SYFY’s horror anthology premieres this October, we’ve learned today, with “Channel Zero: The Dream Door” arriving in time for Halloween on October 26.
Episodes will air one per night, the season culminating on Halloween night.
The new season stars horror icon Barbara Crampton, Brandon Scott (“Channel Zero: Butcher’s Block”, “Greys Anatomy”), Maria Sten (Straight Outta Compton), Steven Robertson (“Elementary”) and Steven Weber (“Wings”).
Based on the “creepypasta” short story “Hidden Door” by Charlotte Bywater, “Channel Zero: The Dream Door” follows newlyweds Jillian (Sten) and Tom Hodgson (Scott), who have each brought secrets into their marriage. When they discover a strange door in their basement, those secrets start to threaten their relationship — and their lives.
Crampton will play “Vanessa Moss” – a woman with a close relationship with Tom Hodgson, we’re told. She’s unprepared for the danger that Tom brings with him.
“Channel Zero: The Dream Door” was directed by Cheap Thrills and Small Crimes‘ Evan Katz (E.L. Katz).
Nick Antosca, who has an overall deal with UCP, returns as executive producer, writer and showrunner for the upcoming installment.
