Sci Fi Channel said it greenlit production on a second season of the series Sanctuary, starring Amanda Tapping.

The NBC Universal-owned network said it ordered an additional 13 hours of the hour-long Friday-night drama, which drew 3 million viewers to its Oct. 3 premiere, the most for a new show on Sci Fi since Eureka in 2006. Episodes two through five have averaged 2.2 million total viewers each on their initial airings, according to the channel. Including the series premiere, it’s averaging more than 2.5 million total viewers per episode, with a 1.7 average household rating of 1.7, a 70% improvement over the network's performance in the 10 p.m. Friday timeslot a year ago...
