Is Sanctuary still open for business?
Last week Terra Nova became the latest sci-fi series to be confined to network television’s archives. Netflix passed on the opportunity to breathe life into the expensive dinosaur adventure that FOX dropped from its schedule after one season.
Recently we’ve also seen the first, and possibly last, season finale of Alcatraz, the latest promising fantasy mystery to walk the way of Lost. Even having J.J. Abrams’ name among the credits is no guarantee that it will return. Given its less than stellar ratings, this series may also be condemned to the inescapable prison of TV history with many questions unresolved.
It’s not alone. FOX loves Fringe but that might not be enough to save it from another season of viewing figures that don’t do justice to possibly the smartest sci-fi show on television. Meanwhile Awake hasn’t generated the kind of excitement that can earn a renewal even when ratings are in a slumber.
Fringe fans, voting is still open for this poll! Fringe is currently in the lead.
