Syfy Sets Sanctuary Return Date, Finales for Eureka, Alphas, Haven and W13

Syfy has announced a premiere date of Friday, Oct. 7 for Season 4 of Sanctuary — and to hear the cabler’s press release tell it, the 13 new episodes will “change everything.” But how, you ask?

“With the arrival of the Hollow Earth refugees, the balance between Abnormals and humans is severely upset,” reads Syfy’s Season 4 teaser. “In order to keep the peace, Magnus and team must throw out the rulebook. But forging their own way means they’re not just dodging dangerous Abnormals anymore, now they’ve got world governments and new villains nipping at their heels.”

    Alright, so Sanctuary is moving back to Friday? Perfect. Now I want to know about the guest stars.

  2. Michael Sacal says:

    So they saw the dip in ratings and moved it back to Friday.

    Why couldn’t they do that with Stargate Universe and Caprica instead of cancel them?

  3. Austen says:

    Two-hour W13 finale! YES.

  4. Tracey says:

    Love that bob hoskins is playing smee again. Cant wait for neverland. Alice was great hopefully this will be too.

    Is john coming back to sanctuary, or tesla? I like them.

  5. Kim says:

    Any word if Alphas has been renewed or not? I saw one episode of it and kind of liked it.

  6. Sam says:

    Oh good. This C-grade show is coming back while Eureka is cancelled. IS THERE NO GOD?

    • lee johnson says:

      Eureka was cancelled due to its own sucess. everyone loved it but syfy cant afford the budget, whereas pretty much half of sanctuary is green screen.

  7. TC says:

    YES! Sanctuary the show that must cost nothing to make because no one watches it comes back in October.

  8. Samantha says:

    When is Being Human coming back?

  9. Pam says:

    I like WH13 but I don’t think I could watch two hours of it!

    I tried Sanctuary but could not get past Amanda Tapping’s terrible accent.

    • Cara says:

      Her accent improved over time…and it really turned into quite a good show. Certainly when I’m looking at what’s on my DVR, that’s always the first show I want to watch — good acting, one or two excellent characters, plus it’s fun.

  10. Liz says:

    Ah, for me, she will always be Samatha Carter in Stargate SG1!

  11. Garrett says:

    What about BSG: Blood & Chrome?!?!? When is it coming???

  12. mst3k says:

    Okay, I’ll be the person to say it… It’s a friggen travesty that Eureka is ending. Why, SyFy? Whhhhhhhhyyyyy!?!?!?!?!?

  13. Sarah says:

    Loving Haven this season!

  14. lovinlasvegas says:

    I’m so bummed about Eureka. It’s one of the few shows I’ll watch ‘live’ and not taped so I can fast forward through the boring parts. UGH!!!!! Good luck to all the cast members and writers. They ROCK!

  15. DOiNK says:

    Lol I think that is Amanda Tapping’s real accent since she is English. Being Human returns in January. SyFy started airing the trailer for it.

  16. sandee says:

    Haven, and Eureka are great shows sorry to see them leave. Always looked forware to watching them.

  17. Kay Steed says:

    Hate to see Eureka go. Warehouse 13 was interesting, but I can live without. Alphas is a great show that should not be cancelled. Most importantly, SyFy should stop making movies for tv. Only two out of the gazillion they have made is are worth watching. Enough blood and guts. How about some good plots? Nature can only turn on us so much without becoming boring!!!!!
