Looks like the SyFy Channel has had enough of the Eureka series, as the cable network has decided not to renew the series for another season. To rub salt into the wound, SyFy has also decided not to order the final six-episodes that were promised/talked about a few weeks ago.
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.
Speaking of rubbing salt into the wound – this has to be a bad month for Andrew Cosby, co-creator of the series, and founder of BOOM! Studios, as word of the final Disney properties going back to the parent company have been released.
