Sanctuary

There’s nothing Abnormal about it! Magnus and her team make a triumphant return with Season 4 of the Gemini Award-winning SPACE original series SANCTUARY, premiering Friday, Oct. 7 at 10 p.m. ET, exclusively on SPACE and SPACE HD.

Mega-genre star and fan favourite Amanda Tapping returns to SANCTUARY – not only as the beautiful and brilliant Dr. Helen Magnus, but also as producer and director once again this season.

Following the success of Season 3, which consistently saw the program rank among SPACE’s most-watched series, the new season is a game-changer, with Magnus and her team going rogue and making their own rules as they find their allies turning against them. 

“We throw some really big twists and turns into this fourth season of SANCTUARY,” said Amanda Tapping, Executive Producer, Director and star of SANCTUARY. “And it’s safe to say that not one of our characters gets out of this season without some significant changes. We really push the Sanctuary into new territory this year and the repercussions are enormous. I think the fans are going to really like what they see.”

In the premiere episode, “Tempus”, Magnus (Tapping) has pursued Adam Worth (Ian Tracey) back to 1898 London to stop him from altering, and quite possibly completely destroying, the future. Each episode is available on demand at www.spacecast.com following the television premiere, along with a host of other content for SANCTUARY fans.

The groundbreaking series has been celebrated with numerous awards, as well as three 2011 Gemini Award nominations earlier this year. This season, viewers will enjoy episodes directed by both stars Amanda Tapping and Robin Dunne, who plays Dr. Will Zimmerman, as well as something a little different – a musical episode. The SANCTUARY cast also continues to wow their fans on both sides of the border, creating a frenzy earlier this year at San Diego Comic Con, where thousands of fans lined up for hours to get a glimpse of the show’s stars. Additionally, Dunne thrilled hundreds of eager fans at Toronto’s Fan Expo, where his autograph line looped around the entire SPACE booth!

SANCTUARY follows the adventures of the beautiful and enigmatic Dr. Helen Magnus and her team, including forensic psychiatrist Dr. Will Zimmerman. Together they track down, study and protect the strange and often terrifying creatures, known as Abnormals, secretly living among us.

The best in genre is taking off on SPACE and SPACE HD this Fall, with massive marathons, mind-blowing finales and epic premieres.

SPACE’s fly Fall schedule launches with the return of INNERSPACE, SPACE’s flagship original daily show, probing the latest and greatest in genre news, every Monday-Friday at 11 p.m. ET starting Sept. 19.

As the heat subsides, SPACE’s Fall lineup doesn’t cool off.
