Canadian sci-fi Sanctuary will not be returning for a fifth season.
Canadian sci-fi Sanctuary has been axed by the Syfy network.
The drama led by Amanda Tapping will not return for a fifth season, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
Mark Stern, president, Syfy original content and co-head, UCP said, in a statement, “We’re honored to have been part of this incredible series. In addition to garnering unmatched devotion by fans worldwide, Sanctuary was a bona fide trailblazer, setting new standards with its highly innovative production techniques – including pioneering green screen and RED camera technology – and Emmy-nominated visual effects.”
Tapping took to Twitter on Monday afternoon: “To all the fans of @SanctuarySeries we love and adore you. Thank you for the love and support. Now to the long dark tea time of my soul. :(”
The show has aired in Australia on both SciFi and ABC2, with the latter about to screen Season 4 in early June.
