Plot Synopsis

Based on Kris Straub's "creepypasta" short story "Candle Cove," CHANNEL ZERO: CANDLE COVE centers on one man's obsessive recollection of a mysterious children's television program from the 1980s -- and his ever-growing, dreadful suspicions about the role it might have played in a series of nightmarish and deadly events from his childhood. Child psychologist Mike Painter returns to the hometown he left as a kid only to relive the happenings of years ago when his brother was one of five children murdered in 1988 in a case that was never solved. Old memories return to the surface when one mother's child goes missing after mentioning that she had been watching CANDLE COVE, a creepy children's puppet show he used to watch 30 years earlier -- around the time of his brother's murder. After what happened, Mike's mom, Marla, agrees to help him investigate the murders, but she is horrified to learn a secret about what happened in 1988 that's been hidden since that time. Although others remember watching this show, they are startled by the realization that it never truly existed and they had been staring at TV static. CHANNEL ZERO: CANDLE COVE is the first season of CHANNEL ZERO, a horror anthology television series created by Nick Antosca.
On Wednesday, November 15, 2016 at 9pm ET/PT, Syfy premiered the Season 1 finale of CHANNEL ZERO. In the season ender, "Welcome Home," after Lily is taken by Candle Cove, Mike puts himself in great danger to save his daughter and confront his tormentor -- and Marla faces an impossible choice. Season 2, based on Brian Russell's "The No-End House," will debut Fall 2017.
