‘Sanctuary’ Will Be Brand New

May 25, 2008 12:01am

The SCI FI Channel original series Sanctuary will be brand new when it makes the leap from the Internet to cable television this fall, creator and executive producer Damian Kindler told SciFi Stream. The series, which stars Stargate’s Amanda Tapping as the 157-year-old scientist and monster hunter Helen Magnus, premiered in 2007 as a the first broadcast-quality original series made specifically for the Internet.

Eight webisodes were released last year, adding up to about two hour-long episodes. While the world doesn’t seem to be quite ready for the pay-to-download television model, Sanctuary is more than ready to leap into 13 hours of its first televised season.


Despite the changes, fans of the online series will definitely recognize Sanctuary. The core of what the show is about remains unchanged.

“It’s still the search for monsters, helping the monsters that need helping, protecting the world from monsters that are too dangerous to be allowed to be free,” [Damian] Kindler said. “And it’s revealing the secret behind that work, which has to do with the future of the human race and why the monsters are the key to that future.”

Stay tuned to SciFi Stream for our complete interview with Damian Kindler in the days ahead! Sanctuary is now filming, and will premiere this fall on SCI FI Channel in the United States. Take a peek at the original online series in our Sanctuary series guide.
