The fourth season of Sanctuary has a premiere date: October 7 at 10 p.m. (9 Central)! The fantasy series that stars Stargate vet Amanda Tapping will be back with a 13-episode season, shortened from the 20 episodes that aired in two blocks this past year. (Check out the trailer below.)
The season premiere is titled “Tempus,” followed by “Uprising” on October 14, “Untouchable” on the 21st, and “Monsoon” on the 28th.
Syfy Channel may have finally seen the light with the show’s scheduling, moving it back to the more genre-friendly Friday night time slot (at least according to the current schedule). The show plummeted from around 1.4 million viewers (Live + Same Day) to around 800,000 after Syfy bumped it to Monday nights in April.
There’s little to speak of in terms of network competition in the 10 p.m. hour this fall: Blue Bloods on CBS, and news programs 20/20 on ABC and Dateline on NBC. FOX goes to local news at 10 p.m. (Science fiction fans may also find Star Wars: Clone Wars on Cartoon Network.)
Sanctuary also stars Robin Dunne, Ryan Robbins, Christopher Heyerdahl, and Agam Darshi. Syfy will help viewers catch up with the story with a marathon of the last 10 episodes on October 7, starting at 8 a.m. (7 Central).
