Whoa! Big shock on Eureka.
Remember how Syfy ordered six episodes for a potential final season last week? Well, now we’re just been told that not only is the show firmly going to end, but the network has changed their mind about those final six episodes.
The 13-episode fifth season that was ordered back in June, which includes a holiday special, is going to be the final season of Eureka. Here’s a statement from Syfy:
“After painstaking consideration, we have had to make the difficult business decision to not order a season six of Eureka. But Eureka is not over yet. There is a new holiday episode this December and 12 stellar episodes set to debut next year, marking its fifth season and six memorable years on Syfy. The 2012 episodes are some of the best we’ve seen, and will bring this great series to a satisfying end. We are very grateful to Bruce Miller and Jaime Paglia, their team of incredible writers, and an amazing cast and crew who have consistently delivered a series we continue to be very proud of. We thank the fans for their support of this show and know they will enjoy its final season in 2012.“
