After four incredible seasons, we're very bummed to find out that SYFY has pulled the plug on one of their best shows, the horror anthology series "Channel Zero."
The very disheartening news comes from series creator Nick Antosca via 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.”
Antosca 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.”
All four seasons of "Channel Zero" were standalone offerings, each based upon a Creepypasta tale. The series first season "Candle Cove" was followed by "No-End House,” “Butcher’s Block” and “Dream Door.” With "Channel Zero" being one of the best original horror shows on SYFY and television in general, it's sad to see the series come to an end.
Memories of "Ash vs. Evil Dead's" premature demise come flooding back to mind...At this point, we can only hope that Shudder picks up the series as their own.
