Axed: Sanctuary

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.

  1. They have been leaving is hanging with a yay or nay on renewal since it finished its fourth season last year. Nice to have it confirmed, but not really surprised. I think the only decent sci-fi left on TV is Falling Skies, and it’s not even on SyFy.

  2. Hmmm Although not strictly science fiction – a little bit to much all about the abnormals for my liking – The SF Genre has lost/will be losing a lot of shows

    Time for someone to up the ante with a decent Sci-fi
