It has been confirmed from two (2) official Sanctuary sources, Syfy and Sanctuary itself that this fine series has been renewed for an epic fourth season. As you may be aware there was apparently an unauthorized leak last month, which was denied by Syfy themselves. This lead many in the news industry and the fandom to believe this same source was incorrect today as it has been in the past. Once bitten twice shy as the old adage goes.
The team at WHR is nothing but thrilled that Sanctuary was picked up by SyFy for a season four. However to me thirteen (13) episodes just doesn’t seem to be enough, but I guess i will take what i can get. As for my tweets, let me just explain my frustration further. Usually when I write any piece of news at all, i will either wait and get it confirmed or get it from someone involved in such projects, like I have done when I wrote about Mr. Francks new project of being a regular on NBC’s The Listener.
I am aware that SyFy and other networks may give out press releases to certain online news agencies. However would it not have been a bit respectful for the news that Sanctuary was picked up for a fourth season be tweeted or put on SyFy’s web site page at NBC Media Village first and or by the production company rather than being leaked? I am just saying this would be a better process and avoid confusion. This is not only my own opinion but many in the news industry and the majority fans themselves. I did not tweet anything to discredit anyone. If it sounded like I did, then i apologize for that perception.
I am a good reporter and Team Leader. I see news, get the facts, and write it. And I am proud to be apart of the WormholeRiders News Agency. I worked my ass off with writing my Sanctuary reviews, coordinating with my team to get the reviews out on time for fans to read. So bring on the second half of season 3 of Sanctuary and I can’t wait for season 4!
I hope you enjoyed the read and thank you for tuning into WormholeRiders News Agency for your daily tidbits of anything and everything.
Editors Note: Here at WormholeRiders News Agency we are driven by our charter to report facts about entertainment news from official sources only and require two sources to post news. We do not desire to post without said official sources as mentioned without exception in virtually all circumstances. The official release was posted by SyFy on Twitter just prior to 3 PM East Coast Time in the United States. This was followed a few minutes later in an official posting at NBC Media Village. The Sanctuary series production themselves confirmed the news approximately 23 minutes earlier. The news was leaked as we have confirmed even before the production studio could announce the news themselves. .
