Syfy is parting ways with its lowest-rated drama series.
The unlucky show in question is horror anthology Channel Zero, which has been canceled after four seasons on the cabler.
Series creator, Nick Antosca confirmed the news with a lengthy statement on Instagram.
It reads as follows:
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. 🤡💀🖤
The cancellation news should come as no surprise given that Channel Zero Season 4 continued the show's descent in the ratings.
Channel Zero Season 4 averaged just 265,000 total viewers, and a mere 0.07 rating in the adults 18-49 demo based on live + same day results.
All told, being the lowest-rated show on the network is likely what made Syfy pull the trigger on the cancellation.
The series aired its final season across six nights in October.
