sanctuary season two cast syfyI wasn't a big fan of Sanctuarywhen it premiered last year on Syfy, but the new trailer for season two, embedded below, is making me look forward to the show's return on Oct. 9.

For the uninitiated, Sanctuary stars Amanda Tapping as Dr. Helen Magnus, a 157-year-old scientist devoted to helping supernatural creatures in need and kicking the ass of everyone else. Along for the ride are Tapping's sexy and dangerous daughter, Ashley (Emilie Ullerup), and newbie nerd Will Zimmerman (Robin Dunne). The show also makes room for regular appearances by peculiar characters like Jack the Ripper, Nikola Tesla and Bigfoot.

Sanctuary started off as a Web series, produced by Tapping and Stargate vet Damian Kindler, which used advanced green screen techniques and CGI instead of traditional sets. The TV version is also filmed almost entirely using green screen, and the results can look rather sketchy at times. But judging by the trailer, it looks like the show's production department has polished up its technique for season two.

Check it out after the jump.
