    And now there is absolutely nothing left for me to watch on Syfy. They have successfully killed the network….. Oh so sad.

    I officially despise SyFy. Three quality franchises cut off at the knees before their time. Has anybody else noticed the lack of quality in the new series compared with Farscape, Stargate, BSG, Eureka, and Sanctuary, etc?

    I haven’t watched all of the above series to judge, but I am saddened by this news.

    “We’re honoured to have been part of it”… liars. They’re not proud of any of the amazing things they did in the past. Sanctuary… Galactica… SGU… Atlantis… SG1… FARSCAPE… they don’t care about any of it. Damn them. Damn the network to total collapse because that’s what they deserve.

    I haven’t watched Sanctuary, but am sad for all its’ fans that it is not coming back. Syfy has fewer and fewer worthy shows left and I no longer watch the network. This show seemed to be a little bit of Stargate that lingered on and now that has finally been killed too. Very sad day for all.

    “SyFy has a number of scripted dramas in development, including Defiance and Rewind” – uh, those are the ONLY new scripted dramas SyFy has in official development. AND WHY AREN’T THEY THINKING OF DOING A KICKSTARTER?! IT WOULD WORK!

    Since I have all my Stargate eps on DVD now, I don’t have to look to SyFy for any more TV viewing *period*.

    I’ve officially signed off from Syfy as of today…

    Can’t say I’m surprised to be honest. When was the last time that Syfy didn’t try to kill off decent shows on their network?

    SyFy and other Networks have pretty much killed what science fiction was on television.There will be the last 13 Episodes of Fringe on Fox.And there will be some more Eureka but other than those there is nothing I will really want to invest my time in watching seriously.
    I am now 56 and nearly every show I followed gets the Axe B4 it should of Ended.
    Someone needs to create a show and leave Hollywood out of the picture.Fund it on Kickstarter and each Season fill it with the stuff we all want for content and no cliffhanger Ending of a Season.
    INDIE Idea could work out great as we all want to watch something that does not get cancelled on a cliffhanger.

    Another one bites the dust. I am pretty much done with Syfy (not SciFi) until Warehouse 13 returns…These idiots don’t know SciFi if it walked up and said, “HIGH I’M SCIFI”. Ratings are not everything damn it. This show wasn’t even doing bad.

    Not only is there nothing for me to watch on the worthless SYFY network, I don’t even have it coming to me on cable any longer as I cancelled the package that it was part of some time back – after SGU had been cancelled and after the last season of Sanctuary. I hope that when Stargate returns one day as a new TV series, that a reputable network such as Showtime will be interested, as they once were and continued to be for 5 great years, in featuring Stargate SG1 when it first began. The Sci-Fi network once had innovative programs and a management that cared -now, they cancel their co-highest rated program – Eureka because it costs just a smidgen too much and they cancelled both SG1 and Atlantis for reasons other than ratings and have played weird games with many other series that have damaged their rating causes. I say that we all abandon what is now called SYFY (embarassed were they of the SciFi origin name) and hope that some new network springs up, as the SCI-FI once did that wants to focus on Science Fiction and not such idiosy as endless quasi-reality shows which, if you notice, almost all of them will do well if they follow one that does OK, but try to stand them on their own and they fail. Whatever, the Scifi network was taken over by twits, and SYFY in no way covers that ground, lets hope against hope that somehow a new real Sci-Fi network emerges again in the next year or few years but somehow sometime relatively soon.
    Sanctuary was an innovative program – 1.26 average audience given how the network treated it should have been good for renewal.They probably freaked with Amanda’s kiss.

    Well, this is fairly depressing, at this point syfy hasn’t had a new show since Warehouse 13/SGU (whichever came later) that really got my attention. So Eureka is ending. And Warehouse 13 might get another season after this year, but probably not a 6th. Once Warehouse 13 is done, I will no longer tune in to Syfy. And at that, I DVR everything. The one plus, is that Amanda, Martin and Damian did a great job with the season 4 finale, and it actually serves as a good series finale… much better then SGU’s finale.

    It has been a long time since SyFy had a original idea for a scripted show, they even picked up Stargate from Showtime way back when. All of their current scripted shows came from outside the US.
    Maybe we need the SPACE sci-fi channel here in the US since SyFy barely airs sci-fi anymore…

    90% of what sci-fi (crap name syfy) shows is garbage…. it is ruined forever… how a network can screw it’s fans over so bad is beyond anything in my lifetime

  19. wingsabre

    To start, I don’t watch Sanctuary, because it’s just not my cup of tea. Honesty, this was not something unexpected. However, this proves that Syfy has no balls. It’s typical of them to drag it out, and announce it when they think others are not paying attention. It’s a slow, cowardly drawn out PR death for a series. Just once, I wish they would have some balls and announce that they won’t renew a series way in advance so that the producers, writers, and crew get a chance to have a proper send-off. They always do it in an inopportune time where there is essentially no way for the writers or producers to plan out an ending, or they’ve already finished filming things. In a way, I wished all shows on Syfy now would do the Ron Moore thing and just say, “F it, we’re going to end it our way, and not wait on the network at the end of every season.” Or do the Mad about You thing and have essentially 3 series finale.

  20. wingsabre
    May 22, 2012 at 3:14 am |

    I think the only series on Syfy that had a real series final was BSG. Other series had a season finale and was not renewed. Even Eureka is one of those shows where the network didn’t have the balls to make a decision and stick with it. First it was renewed, then it would be cancelled, then they were going to renew it for a half season, then it would be their final season, then they decided to add an extra episode for a series finale. Just pick something and go with it, because the indecisiveness frankly just plays with fans and pisses them off.

    On the first forum page of Syfy, you see four cancelations…this says it all in my opinion: They just don’t care about what people would like to see…it is just about money and hopefully, this will bring them to an end of their sooner or later…

    Hey as much as I despise SyFy, it isnt their fault that Sanctuary failed

    the entire creative team had four seasons to do something special with Sanctuary but they were too lazy. They killed off a good character that fans reacted badly too and they created a good character in Tesla but didnt do enough with him and got rid of Druit, the only other interesting character left after Ashley was killed.

    They failed to create good quality story arcs in the four or so years that it was in broadcasting and because of that the ratings have been declined ever since. Given the choice between the two I would have gladly seen Sanctuary cancelled instead of Stargate Universe which was much better quality story wise and acting wise.

    I’m sad to see it go, but that being said I’m glad it is because that means no more hoping for something better to come out of each episode.

    My only hope at this point is that they wont repeat these mistakes in the new Primeval show.

  23. wraithkelso
    May 22, 2012 at 4:47 am |

    @Rivyn have you listened to the newest interview that Amanda and Martin did for gateworld? it pretty much sums up most of the things you just said hurt it, and they explained everything…

    Story arc – they never knew before they finished filming if they would get another season, which is why most of the arcs were 1 season long

    Jonathan Young (Tesla) – he is busy on stage so they had to work around his stage time, but thats also why we got to see more and more of him

    Druit – Its been so long since I watched season 4, but I don’t remember him going bye bye. I’ll have to rewatch.

    As for Quality arcs, I loved the Hollow Earth/Praxus story they did for a season and a half, and I found it to be better then most of what we saw in SGU until the final 10

  27. hewittor

    And they get cancelled for no reason. They want to go the who stupid reality route like the other networks. That crap is killing tv.

    May 22, 2012 at 12:01 pm |

    What a bunch of whiners!!! I love this show and that show sooo much that I just dvr it. I can then watch it whenever I want, so I don’t have to watch the “commercials”. I can’t believe The SyFy channel cares so much about money! Why can’t they be like ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, CW, HBO, and Showtime. Those guys never leave me hanging just because a show doesn’t show a profit or have good ratings. When is SyFy going to get it that its just about ME and what I want when I want it. Life is so unfair!!
    Of course its easier to blame SYFY instead of blaming the guy in my mirror!!

    Thank you GateWorld for bringing us info on whats going on with or favorite shows. Thanks SyFy for bringing us great shows. Of course apparently no ones going to be able to see them because all the true fans are never going to watch SyFy again!!
    Kind of a self-fullfilling prophesy. LOL

    Hey guys I have to agree Sanctuary got boring after a while and I only watched it because of support for Amanda Tapping cause I grew up watching her LOL. There are some good series on SYFY but not many sadly. I still want to know after watching the trailer why the hell Blood and Chrome isn’t being made? The trailer was amazing. Was this an entourage bit where the trailer is awesome but the end product is crap? I don’t know. I also hope I’m wrong that SG TV franchise is dead because I love the people and stories, but looks like its dead dead and the only type of Stargate we will see if they make Stargate 2 but takes place directly after the first Stargate movie and no mention of the tv series.

    May 22, 2012 at 1:48 pm |

    Yet another sad end, made even worse by the lack of what I feel is good Sci-Fi on television.
    I hope Netflix or Hulu is watching this situation. These are the two places, as Amanda and Martin eluded to. They have both been looking to pick up original programming and this would appear to be ready made.
    Who knows, maybe we will get lucky.

  31. finalfd
    May 22, 2012 at 5:00 pm |

    Initial reaction sad about it, but considering where it ended I can at least have some satisfaction that it didn’t end on an unknown like so many other shows seem to be doing.

    But yeah, shows seem to be getting cancelled a lot just when I have an interest. Can’t invest anything into a show anymore, theres just no point.

  32. FutureFossil
    May 22, 2012 at 6:32 pm |

    Lots of negativity. I’m disappointed too but I am sure we have not seen the end of Amanda Tapping! I don’t know what SyFy’s deal is either, but they do what they do and there is little we can do to change that. On the flip side they did give us 10 years…that is a LONG RUN….ten years of Stargate and 5 years of Atlantis. I would love to see them come up with a new Atlantis. They kinda messed up with the third Stargate but maybe they will bring another one back someday. I sure do miss Dr. McKay. Maybe we could work on a little more positive energy here guys. So SYFY is in a slump. They can fix it. I gotta believe they will. It is my favorite network.

  33. morrolan
    May 22, 2012 at 8:51 pm |

    Someone correct me if I am wrong, but canceling previous franchises did make a tiny bit of financial sense because SyFy funded the shows. Wasn’t Sanctuary privately funded? AT has made reference to their “backers” in some interviews. If it wasn’t a financial burden, why cancel such a cost efficient show? I’m Alphas, which is not very good, costs more to produce. Being Human is downright terrible, but I’m sure expensive. And Warehouse 13 is the next to say goodbye, due to cost.

  34. wraithkelso
    May 23, 2012 at 1:05 am |

    @morrolan I agree with you, and I’m really glad that we got to hear that interview with Amanda and Martin before the announcement, that interview actually made me feel SO much better about the state the show is in. But I too, want to see Stargate and Sanctuary get more eps somehow

  35. GMarsack
    May 23, 2012 at 10:22 am |

    This is sad news for those in the show. Although I will admit, I stopped watching ALL SyFy programming once they cancelled Stargate Universe last year. I wish someone would pickup a Stargate show. Since then, I’ve watched what ever is recorded on my HTPC. Thank goodness I have hundreds of hours of programming recorded.

  36. peteym5
    May 23, 2012 at 10:49 am |

    SYFY is getting cheap with everything. First we loose Stargate totally, now all the popular shows are disappearing. Although I never watched this one, I can see how Wrestling on Fridays and moving first run shows to other nights of the week is seriously affecting the ratings. Now I understand Battlestar Galactica Blood and Chrome may not go to series, they’re deciding that before airing the pilot movie. BSG and Stargate were at one time SYFYs biggest attractions and now thats gone.

    Cancelling Sanctuary is just another nail in the coffin, SYFY is DEAD.

    I am waiting for CBS to create another Star Trek series and air it on a competing cable channel or network.

    Browncoat give the jumpstart a rest. As ive said many many times , all fans should have publicly boycotted syfy way back when they cancelled sgu, Probably still have some of the shows we love still. U brought it all on yourself by doing nothing at all. Too late now to do anything. suck it up and move on , just dont put on syfail.

  38. 3531767
    May 23, 2012 at 12:15 pm |

    right on Heimdall ! I too blame the fans for all the shows getting the axe, No support and no outrage when threatened with cancellations. They just whine after the fact.

  39. wraithkelso
    May 23, 2012 at 3:32 pm |

    @3531767 1 thing you need to take in to account: if you don’t have a nielsen box, it doesn’t even matter if you watch it live. But, even if you don’t have it, and you DVR, they will see that you DVR the show and did watch it later. Knowing that I don’t have a nielsen box, I DVR everything to show that I like a show and want to see it, even if I’m watching it at the same time, I’ll then immediately watch it again.

    Another thing, are we supposed to just drop everything bcause its monday night, friday night, etc and our show is on? Some of us have jobs that require us to be available that time of day.

    @Browncoat, et al-
    Even though it’s probably a long shot at best, I would still support all of your efforts at a ‘jumpstart’ of SG of some kind.

    I say: Disregard all those nay-sayers and ‘blame the fan’ bloviators. History’s Graveyards are filled with the carcasses of individuals who’ve never tried to do anything in their own miserable lives- just content to bray noisily on the sidelines at those actually *trying* to accomplish something…

    Only 2 shows left to watch on syfy after the end of Eureka. Haven and Warehouse 13. How much does anyone want to bet moving haven to the fall will kill it? Also, how much do you want to bet that warehouse 13 will be going the way of Eureka and sanctuary (each given a season with more than 13 episodes, then it gets cancelled the following season)? 5 more days until the one year anniversary of the cancellation of sgu, and 6 more days until the one year anniversary of the cancellation of my cable subscription. I don’t even have regular antennas either, and I find that I have much more time for doing other things now. So lets see, I am left with the walking dead, breaking bad (ends this summer), falling skies, haven, warehouse 13, Eureka (cancelled), and sons of anarchy and the league. and when syfy cancels haven and warehouse 13 next year, I will finally cast off the channel that I have been watching since it’s inception in the 90’s. what a shame.

    SYFY sucks, what kind of name is SYFY anyway. I love this show and watch every episode. Its a shame that such an amazing show has been cancelled. SciFi used to be an amazing channel, hell it used to be my favorite channel to watch all my favorite shows. But ever since it became SYFY it all went to hell. Now all I got to watch is Eureka until Being Human comes back next January. Thanks for nothing SYFY you officially suck.

  46. Sylvia
    May 25, 2012 at 10:20 pm |

    Well, I’ve kind of thought Syfy sucked since they canceled SGA and greenlit SGU, (but that’s another story)in this case, though,I don’t think they are entirely to blame. Look at that link I posted above, it seems a lack of funding from the Beedie group combined with bad timing and the Overlords at Comcast led to this unfortunate end.

  47. Browncoat1984
    May 26, 2012 at 2:00 am |

    The article referenced by Sylvia’s link certainly was enlightening. Apparently the plug was pulled after the patient had already flat-lined. One could hardly blame Sanctuary’s financiers for bailing when the returns were not forthcoming or anticipated.

  51. Lilli
    May 27, 2012 at 10:15 am |

    The first season was great. The second was fine but something happened with the show. The critters were cool, hunting and protecting them from the world and the world from some of them was a wonderful premise but politics, Underworld mutants revolution, time travel, singing lyrics, dancing Will, and even shock (Helen suddenly out of the blue becomes a Lesbian or bi-sexual)

    It seemed desperate the last season and half at least – left the tracks.

  52. Lilli
    May 27, 2012 at 10:19 am |

    I’m with everyone else that there is little to watch on Sci Fi. I watch Grimm, will probably watch WH 13 and Haven but don’t have many options. I refuse to get involved in reality shows. That’s brain numbing – and a little bit like chasing police officers around with a camera hoping to see action and maybe some blood.

  53. Coremae
    May 28, 2012 at 2:34 pm |

    truth be told, i never got into sanctuary, other than a few episodes here and there, but honestly, i never really got into it, least, not as into sgu and other versions of stargate as i was. i don’t watch lost girl, i despise their reality shows and ghost hunters and the like, so forget em. and i was never a fan of eureka even though i’ve seen a few episodes now and again, and i hate warehouse 13, so forget that stupid station already.

  54. Jim
    May 29, 2012 at 1:13 am |

    Surprise,surprise..yet another “we are proud to have been…” from Stern,lol! I personally don’t watch SyFy at all anymore,the same as many of the former fans.
    My line in the sand was SGU. Many people’s was SGA. But the fact that this network is affected by the stupidity virus has been obvious for a while now. These are just aftershocks. The fact is that the majority of the old,original group of SciFi fans has tuned out long ago.
    Like we said we would. I’m sorry for the fans,but not for the network. In fact its total end is apparently coming even sooner than I’d predicted. That’s fine with me. Since the dumb pattern of this network is famous…and obviously consistent…the next thing to go is gonna be Haven,that’s been moved back to the fall slot,because it’s not going to be able to compete with the fall’s competition from other networks. That is the next victim of SyFy’s failed programming & scheduling policy.That’s where everything begins. Because of it the numbers start dropping..money..blah,blah..and we know how it ends.

  55. wraithkelso

    So am I the only one that still is going to watch syfy. Yes, I don’t like the wrestling or the reality and they are canceling my favorite series. I was completly pissed when they cancelled each stargate but they brought them to me. The gave me Eureka They gave Sanctuary a chance to be more than a web series and they gave me 17 seasons of stargate, yes five are from Showtime but still. I will be forever grateful for that and still watch when new shows come. Even when Warehouse 13 Aplhas Being Human and Haven leaves. I will still follow it. Four solid seasons of this great show while I know some that barely got one. Goodbye Sanctuary, it’s been a pleasure.

  58. bluewater1
    May 30, 2012 at 5:38 pm |

    I’ll watch what I like whatever channel it’s on. Eureka and Haven still interest me and I catch them when I can. If they get something on the air that intrigues me I’ll watch. However, it certainly looks like the channel is headed in another direction.

    June 2, 2012 at 3:06 pm |

    The syfy channel was literally the only station I watched anymore, largely due to the lack of interesting programs other stations have to offer, but this is it! They took Stargate Atlantis away, Than they toos SGU away now this too? I guess they think giving up television will be difficult for me. Bye bye SyFy!

  61. Jim
    June 2, 2012 at 7:30 pm |

    @wraithkelso Yes..WH13 has been on longer,but it still remains in a slot where it belongs. Over summer,as far as I know. I mentioned Haven in particular,because I know it won’t be able to withstand the competition in the fall. That doesn’t mean WH13 has a bright future on that channel.tho.
    And re other channels,I personally have found stuff I like elsewhere.I love Fringe,even though it’s ending.But Fox gave it the final season to finish the story,despite awful ratings.Respect for that.Also I love Game of Thrones,Once Upon a Time,Falling Skies,Walking Dead and generally AMC’s programming,Spartacus…etc. There’s stuff out there for everyone,definitely for me. I do miss Stargate,but I absolutely don’t even notice the absence of SyFy in my tv viewing. I have said that I would come back to watching SyFy only for Blood and Chrome when I was “paying respects” to that formerly great channel,but after that awesome trailer,not picking it up..not that it was a surprise,but simply now there’s no reason whatsoever for me to return to watching SyFy. That’s it.

  62. wraithkelso
    June 3, 2012 at 4:32 am |

    @Jim yeah, I love Once Upon A Time, it came at the right time for me, because I watch it as often as I watched Stargate when it was on. Oh, I have to ask, does anyone know of a cable or dish company that allows you to have only the channels you want, and not have the others? I would love if I only had like 25-30 channels, but I have around 1000

    I’m not surprised. After Eureka and Warehouse 13 finish, that’s about it for me. Honestly, I look forward to watching TV less, but disappointed nevertheless.

    There are 2 things Syfy is good at now and that is cancelling their only good shows and stealing ideas for their new shows and movies. They stole “Red: Werewolf Hunter” from me. I pitched them the story in detail and was never credited. If only I had copy-written it, I would have sued them.

    I used to watch SyFy, then I took an arrow to the knee!!
    I am saddened by this, the loss of yet another great science fiction show, with great actors and writing, and what are they going to do to finish it off, will it get a straight to DVD movie?? prob not=( well i wont be watching syfy at all anymore, and i hope that the same fate doesnt happen to alphas as that is the last hope for good sci-fi shows!!!!!

    There was an excellent article 2 years ago on TV Guide’s website about what NBC Universal was doing to ruin SY-FY. The person stated that SY-FY wouldn’t have the operating budget it had in the past and that NBC was dumping off several “reality based” shows to air on SY-FY so as to cash in on the advertising. Face it, its sad but, it seems that reality shows is where the money is as far as investors are concerned. I hate all reality shows because I believe they ruin the imagination(just my opinion). I wish I could find the article so I could link it because the author predicted exactly what was gonna happen 2 years ago. He stated that quality shows like Eureka,SGU and Sanctuary probably wouldn’t be let to run over 3-4 years. He also pointed out that “a lot” of new shows won’t be given much of a chance to succeed if they aren’t reality based or low budget movies. He called it a “bait and cut” tactic, where they develop or announce a few new shows so people will come back to SY-FY. When the expenses mount up, like in 2-3 years, they cancel it and hope people stay to watch all the reality shows. He claimed to have gotten is information from an insider and so far he has been right. I looked him up when he wrote the article and if I remember correctly he had been writing and or blogging for TV Guide for 11 years so I believe when he says he has an “insider”. I’m sure it cost a whole lot of money to do SCI-FI with CGI and all but heck if you used to money they spent on crap like Sharktopuss or the 25th different movie version of volcano, super storm, avalanche,tornado,hurricane,mad swarm of bees, piranha,crazy goats,or whatever else they throw in a blender and spit out as a movie script then there would be some left over to continue a good series

    typical of the SyFy network. I am sure that Warehouse 13 will last one more season and that will be it. Haven will have one more season, maybe, after this year. Alphas, that show I am not all that crazy about. The characters are not that sympathetic other than Gary. When you have characters with so many issues, you end up not actually caring. But don’t need SyFy for reruns because I have them as DVD or they are available through Amazon Unbox, which I prefer over iTunes.
