Syfy reverses its decision for a six-episode sixth season and cancels the veteran show
Just last week, Syfy announced that it had ordered a final, six-episode sixth season of Eureka . Now, reports Entertainment Weekly (opens in new tab) , the network has announced that it has reversed the decision, and the show will end after season five after all.
According to Syfy’s official press release: “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.”’
No reason has been given for this sudden change of heart.
