InnerSpace cancelled at Space

The in-house house cleaning at Bell Media, sadly, continues. It was announced Thursday afternoon that InnerSpace has not been renewed on Space.

“After 9 phenomenal seasons, last night was InnerSpace‘s final episode,” Space Channel tweeted on Thursday. “Due to increasing production costs and declining revenue, we can no longer continue production. Thank you to our hosts, crew, and incredible fans for all of the unforgettable adventures. LLAP.”

InnerSpace co-hosts Teddy Wilson and Ajay Fry took to Twitter to address the show’s viewers.

Hosted by Wilson, Fry and Morgan Hoffman, InnerSpace has been the go-to Canadian TV series for all of your sci-fi and fantasy news, television and movie reviews and exclusive interviews and set visits.

Nominated for a 2015 Canadian Screen Award for Best Host in a Variety, Lifestyle, Reality/Competition or Talk Program or Series, InnerSpace was, as described by Bell Media, “a daily entertainment talk show that covers film, television, video games, technology, comic books, gadgets and more. Hosted by Ajay Fry, Morgan Hoffman and Teddy Wilson, InnerSpace takes its audience behind the velvet rope by giving them VIP access to the people, places, and things inside the genre they’ve grown to love.”

The news comes a day after Bell Media announced it would not be renewing Daily Planet and on the heels of CBC cancelling its daily talk show, The Goods, after two seasons. Are the Canadian networks pulling the plug on all in-house production? It sure seems that way.

    1. already did after Teddy said they canceled Inner space and Mark Askwith was no longer employed by Bell Media, I smell BS basically all space channel is now ia s 2nd RUN syfy channel without any talk shows like inner space, how are people going to find out all the behind the scenes, go to see them at Cons like fan expo, engage the fans at VIP events etc, Bel Media did a bad thing

  1. It’s been a brutal couple of years for Canadian daily programming. I noticed things were going south when Michael Landsberg’s show got cancelled and Electric Playground/Reviews on the Run followed shortly after.

    Have to wonder if shows like eTalk are safe solely because they’re used as promotional vehicles for other Bell assets. Then again, the same could’ve been said for Innerspace …

    1. I guess its going to hit FAN expo hard this fall why will they support that without the presence of the faces of SPACE Teddy, Ajay, Morgan and the crew

  2. If Bell Media were smart, they’d add Morgan Hoffman to Your Morning or eTalk on CTV as soon as humanly possible. She is my absolute fave. Fun, fashionable & a pleasure to watch onscreen. The InnerSpace crew did some great work, especially with their Orphan Black, post-episode specials, “After The Black” that were must-see for Orphan Black fans. Sad, sad news.

  3. Innerspace has lost its appeal the last couple years, bashing older versions of movies, promoting movies that turned into rotten tomatoes; whatever happened to personal opinions, it has felt like a 30 minute commercial at times.
    They still had some good content, Teddy Wilson was always entertaining, of the three hosts him I’ll miss the most.
    I’m sure a new show will fill the void, maybe with Teddy Wilson hosting it? lol

  4. It’s becoming more and more difficult to justify my Bell subscription. One show after another being cancelled and they are all featuring Canadian personalities who will be greatly missed. Plus I keep seeing advertising for what Showcase offers ‘on demand’ on other cable operators that they do not offer on Bell and I wonder why I continue to pay the ridiculous rates they charge for sub par service and product.

  5. Gotta say watched for years and the quality of the show has gone way down hill. Way to much reshowing the same articles over and over. Way to much repetition.
    I only PVR the show and could usually watch an episode in about 10 minutes or less.

    It had its run and now it’s done before it got any worse.

  6. I dearly hope that they reverse the decision to cancel inner space. I watched it every night like the news…the geek news. How will we find out all those things important to us in the geek community. Secondly it now puts a good number of people on the unemployment line. I understand bottom lines but this is a hard pill to swallow. I wish everyone at inner space good luck in their futures. Yet another reason why I’m not a Bell fan.

  7. Was a good show. Thankfully though, I won’t have to listen or look at Ajay Frye self promote anymore. Always seemed like the other 2 hosts (the good ones) were made to pander to him.

  8. Very sad! It’s the only talk show I watch. Keeps me up to date and in the know. I’m really going to miss seeing Teddy, AJ and Morgan everyday – they are very entertaining. :-(

  9. Lets start a petition to get them back. Maybe another station will pick up
    Innerspace at the very least. What a loss to the nerdy community who finally
    had a face to relate to.

    1. Innerspace is a show that focuses primarily on other shows broadcast by SPACE. Why would any other network pick them up? At least now maybe we will get honest opinions from the hosts regarding terrible shows such as the latest Star Trek instead of the constant praise they had to spew on every show.

  10. Well, I hate to see InnerSpace go. It’s been a part of my weekdays for ages now. Still though, the writing’s been on the wall for quite a while. The budget cuts were obvious.

    I just wish Bell had shown a little more class. Would it have killed them to finish out the week and give the show a chance to say goodbye?

    1. No kidding! The same thing with Daily Planet over on Discovery Channel. Both shows were simply cut off immediately. No respect for either the people working on the show or those of us who enjoyed watching them for all the years they were on. I have little interest in most of the reruns they now show on SPACE. At least change it up now and then and give us something different like Battlestar Galactica or maybe some Babylon 5. But no, it’s Star Trek over and over and over and over and over….. with the occasional Andromeda tossed in, a series that only had one decent season and the never ending recycling of Stargate.

  11. InnerSpace was the only reason I had Space channel at all. My kids and I used to turn on the TV just for this show. I’m gutted. It was the highlight of my day. And no that is not a commentary on the quality of my days

  12. This is terrible , a real lack of knowing what the people enjoy watching in both cases Daily Planet & Inner space. It really shows the IQ of the people who made their mind up to cancel these two programs.

  13. I am very sad that innerspace has been cancelled.While I am not a gamer, I enjoyed their other content. who will host actors now when they want to talk about their shows? I will miss their abvious affection for one another.Please find shows for them to be apart of.

    1. I have already commented.But I will add one more thought – What do you mean Bell can’t afford to keep this show on the air? Bell Media has more money than God! Innerspace was the voice of a VERY vERY LARGE group of your viewership. We have cosistantly put movies we adore into the #1 spot for weeks. Big corporations continue to chip away at ccanadian content. No time to say Good bye and to fight back? Such bad form. as one person previously commented- time to cancel Bell.

      1. Amazing how Bell cannot afford to keep this show, likely one of the lowest costing to produce, on the air but they have more than enough money to purchase 51% of the Just For Laughs corporation. Ridiculous.

  14. Knew something was wrong when my PVR stopped recording Inner Space on it’s programmed schedule. Inner Space was an integral part of my day, it entertained & educated me & often made me laugh, especially Teddy. Felt like my club that kept me updated on all things Sci-Fi, fantasy etc. Teddy, Morgan & Ajay were my Buds. This feels like a death in the family! Their exclusive interviews with major actors (partly due to the fact that they were usually filming in Toronto) were amazinf & fun. Shame on Bell for cancelling Innerspace. You have turned in to the Canadian version of the US SyFy channel when they didn’t give a damn about quality genre programming. Outside of The Expanse, which may be cancelled as well, there is no reason to watch Space channel anymore.

  15. While I was not a huge fan of the Show. I still enjoyed watching it sometimes. Especially the The Hosts Teddy, Ajay and Morgan. They just seemed like really nice people that you could hang out with! Also you could tell they are fans of Science Fiction! They will truly be missed! The Only thing now going for Space is Doctor Who. Witch they only re- air About month or so before the new season begins!

  16. Wow, this really sucks. A great big ‘Thank you!’ to all the staff at Innerspace. Super show, very imformative and well put together! Really miss all of you.
    As seems to be the usual Bell is shooting themselves in the foot again.

  17. It sucks but its their own fault. Diversification means not every cool thing in Canada is in Toronto. I would have liked to see a lot more content from farther out.(Even the west coast Eh?)
    Also the target demographic for the topics on the program are usually online and don’t have cable.

  18. Was just wondering why innerspace disappeared…then i found this page. WTF! Space channels strongest show imo. A sad day for us geeks. Cancel Bell, pass it on
