There will be no Season 5 of Nick Antosca’s well received horror anthology series Channel Zero. Syfy previously had ordered a third and fourth installment of the anthology ahead of its second season premiere.
Antosca served as executive producer, showrunner and writer on Channel Zero. He first announced the cancellation on Instagram, and Syfy has confirmed.
“After 4 seasons, Channel Zero is no more at SYFY,” Antosca wrote. He went on to thank the show’s writers, actors, crew, et al. You can read his entire post below the story.
Each installment of the Channel Zero anthology was based on a “creepypasta” (user-generated horror stories published online). The first installment, the six-part Candle Cove, centered on Kris Straub’s unnerving story of one man’s obsessive recollection of a mysterious children’s television program from the 1980s.
The series was produced by Universal Cable Prods. Next for Syfy is the debut of Deadly Class.
