Early this afternoon news started circulating that, Syfy’s hit show, Eureka would end at Season 5. Syfy is currently airing Season 4.5 while filming is underway for Season 5. Of course this news , which was thought of as rumor, was quickly validated as truth when Colin Ferguson (aka Sheriff Carter the lead character for Eureka) posted up on Twitter around 4 o’clock in the afternoon:
While Colin Ferguson’s twitter, and Syfy were being bombarded with questions fans speculated why such a popular show would end? Well, everyone take a deep breath….it was all one big miscommunication between the media, actors, and Syfy. The Hollywood Reporter got confirmation from Syfy that they’ve committed to a Sixth Season of Eureka and do not plan an end anytime soon.
Mark Stern, president of original content at Syfy issued a statement to The Hollywood Reporter:
“[Producers] 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.”
So all you fans can rest at ease that Eureka’s crazy scientist will continue their craziness, at least…for now.
The series, now in its fourth season, airs Monday nights at 8/7C.
Are you enjoying the current season of Eureka, and are you hoping for more crazy nerdy/slightly educational adventures?
