Sanctuary is a American-Canadian science fiction-fantasy television series created by Damian Kindler which centres on scientist Dr. Helen Magnus and her team of experts who run the Sanctuary, an organisation that seeks out non-human intelligent creatures.

The series aired in the USA on Syfy from 3 October, 2008 to 30 December, 2011. There are 59 hour-long episodes in four seasons.

Sanctuary premiered in South Africa on DStv's M-Net Action channel on Thursday 19 February 2009, at 20h00. It moved to DStv's M-Net Series channel for the final two seasons and later aired on M-Net Series Zone as well (Season 4 only). See "Seasons" below for seasonal broadcast dates and times.

Synopsis

Sanctuary follows the adventures of the beautiful, enigmatic and always surprising Dr. Helen Magnus, her new recruit, forensic psychiatrist Dr. Will Zimmerman and her fearless daughter Ashley.

Together they track down, study and protect the strange and often terrifying creatures that secretly populate our world and live among us.

Although dismissed as monstrous figments of our imaginations and the stuff of our childhood nightmares, Magnus recognises that the world is full of nature’s mistakes and triumphs and has the spectacular proof that they are indeed real.

Will, an insightful psychiatric profiler with a knack for finding the strange and curious, reluctantly joins the team to aid in the study of beings he can hardly believe himself.

Together, Magnus, Will, Ashley and quirky tech-whiz Henry use their unique combination of instinct, medicine and cutting edge technology to find the creatures that lurk in the corners of our civilization and protect us from those too dangerous to be roaming free.

Sanctuary stars Amanda Tapping as Dr. Helen Magnus, Robin Dunne as Dr. Will Zimmerman, Emilie Ullerup as Ashley, Christopher Heyerdahl as the sinister John Druitt and Ryan Robbins as Henry Foss.

Braving new worlds in each episode is just the start for Sanctuary. The series is also credited for pioneering new techniques and technology in television production.

Sanctuary is one of the only series to shoot extensively on green screen using extraordinary visual effects and virtual sets.

The series was also the first in North America to shoot with the new RED camera - a digital system that captures images at four times the resolution of a high definition camera.
