CHANNEL ZERO Cancelled at SYFY

2019/01/16 17:59:38 +00:00 | Derek Anderson

After four deliciously dark seasons on SYFY, the network has decided not to move forward with a fifth installment of Channel Zero.

Channel Zero creator, executive producer, and writer Nick Antosca shared the somber news on Instagram. While the creepypasta-based series is no more on SYFY, that doesn't mean that we won't see new seasons in the future at another network or streaming service (as Antosca hints at the end of his Instagram post).

Channel Zero has found a resurgence in viewership on AMC's Shudder, with the first three seasons of the anthology series currently available to watch on the streaming service. With their new Creepshow anthology series premiering this year, Shudder has been expanding their original content, and it seems like new seasons of Channel Zero would be a perfect fit for the streaming service.

Time will tell, and we'll keep Daily Dead readers updated on all things Channel Zero in the future. In the meantime, thank you to everyone who worked on Channel Zero to make it so uniquely haunting. There has never been a show quite like this one, and I hope we see many more of its mind-burrowing nightmares in the future.

From Nick Antosca: "CHANNEL ZERO: CANCELLATION NEWS

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. 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."
