This is the first time in a long time that fans have had to wonder whether Syfy would cancel or renew the Channel Zero TV show. The “creepypasta” series has never had the highest ratings. It even ranks pretty low among Syfy programs. Now that it has kicked off its fourth season, without an early renewal in the bag, can it do well enough in the ratings to make the network order more? Will Channel Zero be cancelled or renewed for season five? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
A Syfy horror anthology, each season of Channel Zero tells a new story featuring different characters. Season four, The Dream Door, stars Brandon Scott, Maria Sten, Steven Robertson, Steven Weber, and Barbara Crampton. Based on Charlotte Bywater’s creepypasta, “Hidden Door,” this installment follows newlyweds Jillian (Sten) and Tom (Scott), who have each brought secrets into their marriage. When they discover a strange door in their basement, those secrets start to threaten their relationship — and their lives.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings, the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available.
