SyFy Orders Two More Seasons of Channel Zero

As reported today by Variety, the SyFy Network has ordered two more seasons of their horror anthology series Channel Zero. This renewal brings the series up to a fourth season, as the initial order called for two seasons of the Creepy Pasta inspired program.

Syfy president Chris McCumber told Variety that, “We look forward to creeping everyone out again this fall with ‘No-End House,’ and can’t wait to see what nightmares Nick has in store for the future.”

The first season entitled “Candle Cove” ran for six episodes and delivered strong ratings by SyFy Network standards, pulling in a little better than 1/2 a million viewers on average. read more

Teaser Trailer Released for New SyFy Channel Horror Anthology Channel Zero

Everyone has their own “body horror” hang-ups.  Some people cringe at joint or digit manipulation.  Others duck for cover when eyes are in danger of being injured or removed.  If the removal of teeth gets your skin crawling, my advice is to steer clear of the new teaser trailer for SyFy’s Channel Zero.

Channel Zero, a season long horror anthology program in the vein of American Horror Story from Max Landis (Chronicle) and Nick Antosca (co-producer and writer of Hannibal), begins with a tale based on Kris Straub’s short story  “Candle Cove” from internet fan fiction site creepypasta.com. The creators expressed their excitement for the new project in an official release stating that, “We love the idea of doing seasons of TV like rich, character-driven horror novels, and for ‘Channel Zero: Candle Cove’ we’ve expanded this great short story ‘Candle Cove’ into something really nightmarish and haunting and surreal,” said Landis and Antosca. “We can’t wait to dig in deeper and bring this to life with Syfy and Universal Cable Productions.” read more
