Syfy has been keeping Sanctuary fans in the dark on the future of the series, with Season 4 coming to an end in December but no word on whether the show would be back for a fifth season... until today. The genre network has finally announced its decision, and it sucks: Sanctuary has been canceled, says The Hollywood Reporter.
The show starred Amanda Tapping (Stargate SG-1) as a scientist who protects monsters by bringing them back to "The Sanctuary" where they can be studied and better understood. Robin Dunne, Ryan Robbins, Agam Darshu, and Christopher Heyerdahl also starred. The show was known for its production techniques, including the incorporation of green screens and the use of the all-digital RED camera.
Tapping took to Twitter to address the cancellation, and even added a frowny face to really nail down her feelings:
To all the fans of @SanctuarySeries we love and adore you. Thank you for the love and support. Now to the long dark tea time of my soul. :(— Amanda Tapping (@amandatapping) May 21, 2012
