1st Logo (1999-2006)

Nicknames: "Shining Lion", "Lion Constellation"

Logo: On a black background, we see the lion from the film logo. Below it is "LIONS GATE". Under it is "TELEVISION", in what appears to be stretched-out Myriad. The lion flashes and shines.


  • On Shutterspeed, a byline saying "In Association With Mandalay Sports Action Entertainment" appears below. The logo is also smaller. A similar version is seen on Final Run and Superfire, with a byline saying "In Association With Mandalay Television".
  • On the TV movie The Pilot's Wife, a still/filmed variant of this logo is seen, with a "In Association With" byline below. It then cuts to the Mandalay Television logo.

FX/SFX: The flashing of the constellation.

Music/Sounds: A synth theme with crashing cymbals to hit the last note; otherwise, the end theme of the show.

Availability: Fairly common. Seen on The Dead Zone on H&I and the first season of Weeds, among others. It can be also seen on Tubi prints of Missing.

Editor's Note: None.

2nd Logo (1999-2005)

Nicknames: "The Green Lion", "Lion Constellation II"

Logo: On a black background, we see the constellation of the lion from the Lions Gate Films logo in green with the stars in yellow. On the left of the lion is the text "LIONS GATE" in Bernhard Modern and "ENTERTAINMENT" in a green serif font is under it.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: Just the end title-theme from any show or the generic network theme.

Availability: Rare. Seen on Unsolved History. Also affixed to the end of documentaries made by Termite Art Productions (except Ripley's Believe it or Not!), Busted on the Job and its sequels.

Editor's Note: None.

3rd Logo (2006-2013)

Nicknames: "The Lions Gate Sky", "Lionsgate Hero"

Logo: Just the 2nd half of the 5th Lionsgate Films logo.

Later Variant: In 2010, a registered trademark symbol was added.

FX/SFX: Just the camera zooming back from the logo.

Music/Sounds: Mostly it's the end-title theme from any show or silent. As of late 2010, it's a little sped-up version of the last notes of the theatrical logo. On the VH1 series Scream Queens (unrelated to the Fox comedy/drama series of the same name), a faint wind sound is heard.

Availability: Common. Seen on shows from the ear such as Boss, Weeds, Nurse Jackie, Mad Men, Anger Management, Orange is the New Black, the final season of The Dead Zone, among others.

Editor's Note: None.

4th Logo (June 3, 2013- )

Nicknames: "The Lions Gate Sky II", "Lionsgate Hero II"

Logo: The last two seconds of the 2013 logo.

FX/SFX: Same as the theatrical logo.

Music/Sounds: The same two logo themes from the 3rd logo. Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist on NBC uses the network's generic theme.

Availability: Common. Seen on later episodes of the Anger Management TV series starting on episode 21. It's also seen on season 2 of Nashville, the last two season 5 episodes of Nurse Jackie, the last three season 6 episodes of Mad Men, Graves, and Greenleaf on OWN as well as on BounceTV. Currently seen on Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist on NBC.

Editor's Note: None.
