Update: Eureka gets cancelled by Syfy, and revises its decision of a sixth season with six episodes. No more Eureka, bummed to see Eureka cancelled.
Here is Syfy´s statement about Eureka´s cancelation: 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.“
What do you think about Eureka getting canceled?
Syfy is moving on in a darling series, giving Eureka a renewal order for season six.
Season six renewal order for Eureka consists on six episodes, and that launched a lot of buzz saying that it was to give the show the chance to have proper farewell, instead of just canceling Eureka, letting it go in its own terms.
But, according to a report on Entrtainment Weekly, Mark Stern, president of programing at Syfy, says: “Bruce Miller and Jaime Paglia have brought a creative vitality to Eureka that has kept it fresh and inventive. 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.”
What does it mean to have Eureka renewed for six episodes on season six? Let´s not read more into that, let´s just rejoice in the fact that Eureka´s been renewed. And let´s rest assured that if it is in fact the last, it will go with a good planned finale.
