Sanctuary Renewed For An Epic Fourth Season (Official Press Release)


Great News Sanctuary Fans!Visit Sanctuary at SyFy Dot Com!

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.

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. .


NEW YORK – January 18, 2011 – Syfy has green-lit production on a fourth season of Sanctuary, it was announced today by Mark Stern, President, Original Programming, Syfy & Co-Head, Original Content, Universal Cable Productions. Sanctuary season 4 is slated to commence production on a 13-episode season in spring 2011 in Vancouver, BC with an eye towards a fall 2011 premiere on Syfy.

Sanctuary follows brilliant scientist Dr. Helen Magnus (Amanda Tapping) and her team, who use their unique combination of instinct, medicine and cutting-edge science to find and aid a clandestine population of beings that the world refuses to believe exists. The series also stars Robin Dunne as forensic psychiatrist Dr. Will Zimmerman, Agam Darshi as the quick-witted Kate Freelander, Ryan Robbins as tech wiz Henry Foss and Christopher Heyerdahl as the sinister John Druitt.

One of television’s most groundbreaking series, shooting almost entirely on green screen, Sanctuary was the first television series in North America to use the RED camera exclusively. Its stunning visual effects were nominated for a 2008 Emmy Award.

Created by Damian Kindler (Stargate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis), Sanctuary is produced in association with Syfy and is distributed by Tricon Films and Television. Season three of the series is executive produced by Damian Kindler, Amanda Tapping, Martin Wood, Keith Beedie and Tricon Films.

  1. hello karen and wr systems. no i do not take offense and understand. i am not much of a twitter person more facebook, but i went around to peoples twitter pages and it seems i was not the only one upset by the leak. i ask that you respect my opinion about how it looks when a small blog is given leaked information before syfy could even post it. it looks bad for syfy. what they should have done if that was authorized is stated that before hand and i doubt they would have because syfy reprimanded showpatrol in december for being wrong. it is obvious to anyone who has eyes and can read that the guy did not have permission since syfy never stated it anywhere. anyway i like wormholeriders because you have detailed articles that are well researched unlike other web sites that do short things claiming they are reviews which they are not. and yes i will come back when i have time.

  2. Thank you Gene for reading and for making our website your trusted place for the most updated news sites. I don’t doubt that he is a talented writer, I’ve visited his site as well, but I think that the official news should have been posted on the SyFy site and tweeted by Syfy. That’s the main reason why I and others on this site will wait till it’s been posted or tweeted by the right people before “jumping the gun”. All my reports on people are well informed, as I done with Mr. Francks. He tweeted about his newest project, I asked him if I could write an article on it, and he was flattered that I wanted to take that on. And he thanked me for it as well.

    Again, thank you for reading. My Sanctuary team and I will be back up and running soon with the next installment of the Sanctuary episodes.


  3. Hi Gene,

    Thanks for the comment. We know ShowPatrol and he has been a big supporter of science fiction television. I think it is a little off base to suggest that Chicago Now and or Mr. Wagner is paying bribes or giving favors just because you had something like that happen where you work.

    Yes it does happen a lot in various industries but I almost did not approve your comment because you veiled an accusation at both Syfy and Chicago Now. Instead I approved it because you have posted nice comments previously and you are entitled to a response as such. However, you should be careful about making an inference simply because you suspect the same thing happened as you mentioned at your company.

    We here at WormholeRiders News Agency were monitoring the tweets of Mark Stern, SyFy, Sanctuary series, the people who work on Sanctuary and the NBC Media Village. We posted the news once we had two confirmed official sources.

    We do enjoy your taking time to comment. I hope you keep coming back like so many do and that you take take no offense at my response. Thank you.

    Best Regards

  4. i love sanctuary. I agree with you karen and know who you are talking about. the other news blog is showpatrol who i also visit but i was disappointed when he made a post in december last year that was premature and not true about sanctuary. i do not comment over there because of that and other times when curt has posted what was leaked instead of waiting for the official announcements. to be fair its not his fault. but it is sad that people that work at companys like syfy leak things to places like showpatrol blog because it makes the company where they work seem unprofessional. every news company should get the news at the same times or it is wrong. i work at a very large company and we had a person fired for leaking information because they were getting kickbacks money from the news places they leaked to. i wonder if the person who leaked it from syfy is also getting special favors or money or bribes for what they did? i comment here because wormholeriders always tells the truth and waits until news is confirmed before writing a story.
