SANCTUARY follows the adventures of the enigmatic scientist Dr. Helen Magnus (Amanda Tapping) who, with her team, shelter a clandestine population of strange and sometimes terrifying beings. Along with forensic psychiatrist Dr. Will Zimmerman (Robin Dunne), Magnus seeks to protect these imperiled phenomena while unlocking their mysteries.
