Syfy Just Cancelled the Excellent Horror Anthology Series “Channel Zero”

Published

on

After four seasons, we’re incredibly bummed to report this morning, Syfy has pulled the plug on one of their all time best projects, the horror anthology series “Channel Zero.

The extremely depressing news comes to us direct from creator Nick Antosca, who writes over 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.”

He continued, “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. 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.”

Each season of “Channel Zero” was a standalone offering, based on a Creepypasta tale. The debut season “Candle Cove” was followed up by “No-End House,” “Butcher’s Block” and “Dream Door.” Syfy isn’t exactly known for dishing out quality (original) horror programming, but these last few years, “Channel Zero” proved to be one of the best horror shows on TV.

Sadly, it seems the audience just wasn’t there. It’s “Hannibal” and “Ash vs. Evil Dead” all over again, friends. Here’s hoping Shudder takes on “Channel Zero” as their own.
