SyFy picks up Channel Zero for 3rd & 4th seasons

I'm pretty excited to hear that Syfy announced today that they will be picking up two more seasons of the horror anthology series, CHANNEL ZERO

I watched all six episodes of the first season, aka Candle Cove, and found them to be more than a little eerie, and more than a lot of horror good times. The short season was filled will many twists and turns which took me by surprise, and any movie, show, series that can pull a fast one on me gets my seal of approval.
 
The official press-release reads:

Each installment of the CHANNEL ZERO anthology is based on a “creepypasta” (user-generated horror stories published online). The first installment in the anthology series, the six-part CANDLE COVE, landed on several “Best TV of 2016” lists and centered on Kris Straub’s unnerving story of one man’s obsessive recollection of a mysterious children’s television program from the 1980s. NO-END HOUSE, the second six-hour installment, is set to premiere on Syfy in October 2017. It follows Brian Russell’s story of Margot (Amy Forsyth, “The Path”), a young woman who, along with her friends, visits the No-End House – a bizarre house of horrors consisting of a series of increasingly disturbing rooms.

Chris McCumber, President of Syfy says:

“CHANNEL ZERO certainly hit a nerve with CANDLE COVE. We look forward to creeping everyone out again this fall with NO-END HOUSE – and can’t wait to see what nightmares Nick has in store for the future.

CHANNEL ZERO executive producer Nick Antosca added:

"Making CHANNEL ZERO’s CANDLE COVE and NO-END HOUSE has been a terrific experience. Universal Cable Productions and Syfy gave us a unique space to adapt weird cult horror stories and showcase some of the most talented independent directors out there. I'm so excited to bring more of these stories to the screen."

Antosca (HANNIBAL) returns as executive producer, showrunner and writer for both newly ordered installments alongside executive producer Max Landis (CHRONICLE).

RE: Herelam

Thanks for the feedback. This is an important issue. Kris Straub, the writer of the creepypasta CANDLE COVE, the story on which season 1 of CHANNEL ZERO is based, is credited on the series with "story by". Writers who get "story by" credit on films/TV series usually are highly compensated. It's part of the WGA agreements, and I'd like to think SyFy and the producers worked within the WGA's rules & restrictions. But you never know... That said, he was given credit for his story, and it can

I hope they are compensating the original authors

Intellectual property is a real thing. The money SyFy makes from ads is a real thing. The authors stories, from which these stories take influence, are real people with regular jobs. Jobs I might add, that pay a fraction of what the ad revenue from a SyFy ad pays. I saw a couple posts on reddit's Creepy pasta talking about this very thing.
