Sanctuary information

Cancelled TV shows for 2011-12It happens every year. The networks and cable channels cancel TV shows to make room for new series that will hopefully attract lots and lots of viewers. The 2011-12 season is no exception.

This list encompasses shows that have been cancelled or have ended and won’t be back for the 2012-13 season. It covers those that have gotten the ax roughly between September 1, 2011 and August 31, 2012. In some cases, the last episodes of some shows aired months earlier but the network didn’t get around to canceling the series until later. If you don’t see what you’re looking for, try the 2010–2011 listings, the 2009–2010 listings, or maybe you’ve gotten lucky!

This list used to include the UK’s Skins but, since the last season won’t air until 2012-13, we’re holding it until the 2012-13 list.

Because there have been so many cancellations, we’ve split this list up into three pages. This is the third. Here is page one and here is page two.

Now, let’s take a moment to bow our heads and remember these fallen TV series… Read more…

More about Sanctuary



This sci-fi series follows the daily life of Dr. Helen Magnus (Amanda Tapping), her journey to protect monsters known as "Abnormals," and the sanctuary that serves as a safe haven for them. Helen is the daughter of a brilliant, controversial medical researcher and was exposed to his secret lab at an early age. Studying the Abnormals, Dr. Magnus has proof that they are indeed real and has become the protector of some and the captor of the more dangerous ones. One of the doctor's more guarded secrets is that she is 157 years old. Helen has a daughter, Ashley (Emille Ullerup), who is just as beautiful as she is tough. She's a skilled fighter and a monster-hunter supreme, thanks to her mother's profession, and sees that nothing is impossible. Dr. Will Zimmerman (Robin Dunne) is a forensic psychiatrist who previously worked with the Feds. A master at the science of behavior, he can break a case by finding the most hidden human signals and using his innate empathic abilities. He lost his Bureau job and the respect with his peers because of his fascination with alternative explanations for crimes. This catches the attention of Dr. Magnus who offers him a position on her team. Another of Dr. Magnus' employees is geeky Henry Foss (Ryan Robbins), who brings his talents as a weapons designer and computer expert to the team. He also happens to be half-werewolf. Kate Freelander (Agam Darshi) offers her con artist services to the highest bidder. At one time she worked with the Cabal organization but when she escaped that, she was drawn into Dr. Magnus' team. She may not be the most loyal person, but she still has great skill. John Druitt (Christopher Heyerdahl) is Dr. Magnus' former lover and can appear and disappear at will and is unlike the other Abnormals. Each time he uses his abilities, he suffers a specific kind of brain damage. Dr. Magnus helped the Neanderthal-like Bigfoot (Christopher Heyerdahl) many times after he was shot. He refused to leave so she gave him a job on her staff as a butler, chauffer, handyman, and bodyguard. He's smarter than he looks and enjoys scaring children for fun.
