Channel Zero canceled after four seasons at SYFY
SYFY’s Channel Zero is officially off the air. Showrunner Nick Antosca posted to Instagram confirming that the anthology series would not be moving forward at the cable network. Channel Zero first premiered back in late 2016. The most recent season, Channel Zero: The Dream Door, premiered last year.
Antosca thanked many of his series collaborators in the caption. “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 post began. “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 also thanked Kris Straub, Brian Russell, Kerry Hammond, and Charlotte Bywater, who were the authors of the creepypasta stories on which Channel Zero was based. The most recent Channel Zero installment was based on the creepypasta short story Hidden Door by Charlotte Bywater.
Previous seasons of the series include Channel Zero: Candle Cove, Channel Zero: No-End House, and Channel Zero: Butcher’s Block, which are currently available to stream anytime on Shudder. The fourth season, Channel Zero: The Dream Door, will be added soon.
