Syfy’s groundbreaking hit original series Sanctuary, commenced production on its third season in Vancouver on March 15. The one-hour drama’s 20-episode season is slated to return to Syfy this fall.
Sanctuary is one of television’s most groundbreaking series, shooting almost entirely on green screen. The series was the first television series in North America to use the RED camera exclusively, and its stunning visual effects were nominated for a 2008 Emmy Award.
Season three picks up from the adrenaline-fueled action of season two, which raised the stakes for the brilliant scientist Dr. Helen Magnus (Amanda Tapping) and her team, who use their unique combination of instinct, medicine and cutting-edge science and technology to find and aid a clandestine population of beings that the world refuses to believe exist. Sanctuary also stars Robin Dunne as forensic psychiatrist Dr. Will Zimmerman, Agam Darshi as the quick-witted Kate Freelander, Ryan Robbins as tech wiz Henry Foss and Christopher Heyerdahl as the sinister John Druitt.
Created by Damian Kindler (Stargate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis), Sanctuary is produced in association with Syfy and is distributed by Tricon Films and Television. Season three of the series will be executive produced by Damian Kindler, Amanda Tapping, Martin Wood, Keith Beedie and Tricon Films.
