The sci-fi series ends after four seasons.
May 21, 2012
Syfy has cancelled Sanctuary after four seasons on the air. The science fiction series, which debuted on television in 2008, ends after 59 episodes. Eight 'webisodes' were also produced for the Internet in 2007.

whoah whoah syfy haters.... what about Haven, Alphas, Warehouse 13? Not to mantion some excellent miniseries like Tin Man in recent years. I mean - tell me another station that puts out as much original sci-fi content consistently?

Clearly, once the name was changed to syfy, it was to let everyone know that they would no longer have scifi on but parodies and moronic movies, paranormal sows, and for some reason wrestling. Another good show bites the dust. This last season was a bit of a strech, but I was lloking forward to a fresh season, and hoping for a return to the shows original types of stories.

I think that if SyFy would stop spending loads of time and money on these movies which by the way I feel a little guilty putting the crap that they play in the same category as other real movies.Then they could give time for shows to recover from a bad storyline or a change in the cast.....just an idea.

There goes another great show. Ok, it had its ups and downs, but that's the problem: with the trigger-happy networks waiting for a show to experience a poor few episodes to drop the axe, any show that has a slow month is never given a chance to re-engage the audience. Instead of working to revive a lagging show, they invest millions in ever more wonderful and new (read "rehashed or untried") stories which have no more chance of success! Every series I have watched regularly in the last three years or so has been axed, and all have left me hanging with their unresolved "season finale cliffhangers". I'm so sick of it that I've resolved not to get interested in any new series until it has been wound up with its logical conclusion, rather than an axing mid-storyline. Then I will watch the show in syndication or buy the DVD set. Do these network TV execs not realise that they destroy confidence in new shows before they start, due to the readiness with which they axe a show that is not, in their opinion, making the grade?

SyFy needs to change its name again it's no longer a scifi channel. So disappointing all the good shows get canceled so they can show more crap reality (that's no way really reality). More time to explore the othe channels I never used to watch.

Since SyFy is getting rid of all of the true science fiction stories, at least it is freeing up time to watch shows on USA, TNT, A & E, and others. Now I can get my tapes watched. Most of us don't watch the reality shows. Having to live in reality does not mean we want to watch it. They say the ratings are down. I've never trusted the ratings. Do you or anyone you know participate in any kind of survey? I never have. Fans of shows are not any part of any equation. Networks care about everything in the world except us.

SciFi WAS my channel. Screw all the reality crap out there, here was a BUNCH of great SciFi shows, all in one place! Excellent drama and story-lines. Then suddenly, SciFi becomes SyFy and forgets it's roots. Starts canceling all the good scifi dramas in favor of cheap reality crap. Stargate was gone, Atlantis and then SGU - Caprica, Eureka, now Sanctuary. I really liked Sanctuary, esp the first couple seasons (the should have never changed the main title theme in the beginning - the original was great!). Although I wasn't thrilled with the last season, there was potential for it to come back with a better story-line in season five. It was a great over-all concept. Without a Battlestar, Stargate or Sanctuary, SyFy basically doesn't have anything....
RIP SciFi - I'll remember you and the good years.....

While I liked the basis of Sanctuary, lately it has been pretty boring. I liked the old episodes before Magnus' daughter got killed off. There was such potential with that character. I am not surprised it got canceled.
I do still miss the Stargate series, they were well written and made for a great group of TV series. I am also annoyed that they are killing off Eureka, such a good show that is worth renewing.
Alphas is ok, but it is far from its potential as a great show. I see it being canceled soon if they do not grab the viewer with good story lines.
Terra Nova should still be on the air, canceling that was just a moronic decision.
I am annoyed that the number of good Sci-Fi shows seems to have died with the re-branding to 'SyFy' and the WWE acquisition. Now we just have no thought required wrestling and stupid ghost hunter/paranormal 'reality' shows.
Warehouse 13 is the only good show left, they are about to lose a ton of viewers. NBC fails miserably at knowing the market for this channel. The execs need their head examined. Even if you do not like the genre you do not kill it off when it can make you money.

NBC does not want or like Science Fiction. The manager does not like Science Fiction. They figure by changing the call letters from sci-fi to syfy there is no corralotion any more. Haven't you figured it out yet? Syfy means screw you **** you and they sure did!!!!!!

No one that I know likes those paranormal reality shows. We will miss Sanctuary a funny show with some great plots and getting better with Magnus having her own funds after saving for two or three life times; preparing for the worst. I would rather see cooking shows in place of those so called reality bombs.
