Why Was It Cancelled? This show debuted in Fall 2016 to passable ratings and was given a renewal through its fourth season. But its numbers went on a steady decline and the show only averaged a 0.07 rating (seven one hundredths of a rating point) in its final season. Syfy’s parent company NBCUniversal has an ownership stake in the series, but apparently the ratings were too low to justify bringing it back for another year. Channel Zero received good buzz from genre fans and critics alike, but the show just failed to build much of an audience.
