‘Eureka’ canceled, sixth season plans dropped

Eureka-carterWhoa! Big shock on Eureka.

Remember how Syfy ordered six episodes for a potential final season last week? Well, tonight the network decided that not only is the series firmly going to end, but those final six episodes are not going to happen after all.

The 13-episode fifth season that was ordered last year, which includes a holiday special, is going to be the final season of Eureka.

Here’s a statement from Syfy:

“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.

Last week a Syfy executive and said he was “hopeful” the drama series about a town of geniuses would continue beyond an additional six episodes, but I guess the deal didn’t come together as parties expected. At least Eureka ran for a healthy five seasons and this move still gives producers time to wrap up the show in a creatively satisfying way. (I know, it’s like the TV series equivalent of saying, “At least he didn’t suffer,” but it’s still true!)
