About the show

Channel Zero is a US horror anthology TV series that was launched on October 11, 2016 on SyFy.

The freshman season, “Candle Cove”, contains six episodes.

The concept of the series is to breathe new life into “creepypastas”, the viral internet urban legends. The plot of Candle Cove is based on Kris Straub`s Candle Cove and is built around Mike Painter (Paul Schneider), a child psychologist who comes back to his hometown in search of the truth regarding his twin brother`s disappearance in the 1980s along numerous other children. The missing children cases turn out to be connected to a disturbing children`s TV show that aired at the same time.

Reviews, viewership and renewal

Channel Zero was met with mostly positive reviews and decent ratings. The premiere episode drew 0.76 million viewers, although by the third episode only 0.55 million were tuning in. 7.5/10 on IMDb and 91% on Rotten Tomatoes are excellent signs of strong potential. The series has originally received a two-season order in 2015, and the second installment, The No-End House, is expected to air in 2017. It will also contain six episodes, and will introduce the story of Margot Sleator (Amy Forsyth), a young woman whose life becomes very different after her visit to the No-End House of horrors. Stay tuned and we will inform you when a second season of the thrilling creepypastas-based show gets a release date.
