CHANNEL ZERO: CANCELLATION NEWS 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. 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. 🤡💀🖤
Inspired by creepypastas, or modern horror urban legends spread on the internet, the series adapted popular online paranormal stories in self-contained six-episode seasons with rotating casts and directors each season. The series was produced by Universal Cable Television and received a full series order from Syfy in 2015. The fourth and final season concluded this past Halloween.
Prior to his work on Channel Zero, Antosca served as a co-producer and writer on the third and final season of the NBC thriller series Hannibal and as a writer on MTV's recent Teen Wolf revival. In addition to his work in television and film, Antosca is an acclaimed horror novelist.
Created, written and executive produced by Nick Antosca, the first three seasons of Channel Zero are currently available to stream on Shudder.
