Syfy Cancels 'Eureka' Despite Sixth Season Plans


The network decides not to renew the sci-fi series, reversing its recent six-episode season 6 renewal.

"Eureka" season 5, which is currently in production, will be the last for the show. Syfy has just announced its decision to cancel the drama comedy series although it previously ordered six episodes for a sixth season, which was believed to be the last. "After painstaking consideration, we have had to make the difficult business decision to not order a season six of Eureka," so the network says in a statement.

Just a few days before, Mark Stern, president of programing at Syfy, said they were hopeful that the show would continue beyond the fifth season. "Although we do not have a commitment beyond six episodes for the sixth season, we are hopeful that this will not be the end of the franchise," he stated when confirming the six-episode season 6.

Now that the network reverses the renewal, it begins promoting the fifth season as the final one. "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 statement, which is released via Entertainment Weekly, further mentions. "The 2012 episodes are some of the best we've seen, and will bring this great series to a satisfying end."

The fourth season, meanwhile, airs every Monday at 8/7c. In next week's episode titled "Of Mites and Men", Eureka has a problem with bugs which have an apettite for destruction.
