Sanctuary Canceled By Syfy

In news that is not very surprising, THR has confirmed with Syfy that Sanctuary is not returning for a fifth season.

No $$$$ Sherlock!

And it’s about time that Syfy fessed to canceling Sanctuary instead of letting the fans continually hang on the deafening silence that was emanating from the net.

The silence was deafening as no news came out about the show back in February and it only became worse as networks were announcing their schedule of new shows and yet, Syfy said nary a word about the series, despite announcing their line up and fans continually inquiring.

It took the prodding (I’m guessing) of THR to get an official word.

But hey, according to Mark Stern,

“Its been an amazing ride and we look forward to our next project with Amanda Tapping, Martin Wood and Damian Kindler.”

To be honest about it, what a disservice the network did to fans. As far as I could tell, they knew this for quite some time and I called it back in February, about three months ago. The clues were all there. The season four finale could have stepped in for a series finale. The cast and crew were working on other projects during the time frame that they should have been working on a fifth season. The network seemed awful silent on the matter, as did all the cast.

I mean if the network could go ahead and cancel a much more popular show, Eureka, what was holding them back from canceling Sanctuary?

Well, at least the fans are no longer left hanging and we can move on.

It’s not that I’m mad it was canceled. I’m frustrated in how the Syfy channel treated the fans… regardless of how few of them were represented by the Nielsen measurement system, you would think the net could have said something anyway. That’s all that’s irking me.

I have had it with SYFY. They cut short SGA, BSG and SGU. They cancel a great show like Sanctuary. Each one of these shows still had great stories to tell…
