Eureka: Canceled!

by at . Comments

Start saying farewell to Eureka, readers.

SyFy is currently airing what is considered to be season 4.5, while the cast films the 13 episodes that will comprise season 5 and likely start airing this fall.

After that, six more installments will run (in the summer of 2012, we presume) and that will bring the Collin Ferguson and Salli Richardson-Whitfield series to an end.

There's plenty of time to say goodbye, but From all of us at TV Fanatic, to all of the residents of Eureka: it's been a pleasure.

UPDATE: Forget about those six episodes. Eureka will end after season five. SyFy has released this statement:

“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.“

This is really a great tragedy of TV series going off the air with flying high rating...it is really crappy that they are once again taken a perfectly great show off the air. I am so tired of reality crap and enjoy fun shows...but they are going the way of the dinosaurs...why in the world are they taking Eureka off the air...this is totally crazy. I feel so much like a jinx...everytime I enjoy a TV show it doesn't stay on forever like I'd like it too. This is really sad...and I am totally bummed out!!! SyFy you are not giving your fans much to look forward too...might mean I need to sit back and read a book...it is so really upsetting to me and I'm sure other fans of Eureka...you are all stupid from removing this from your TV series. I just hate this...really can you tell...I just hate this!!! UGH!!!

Syfy is dying. They should rename it The Superstition Channel. It will be Ghost Hunters this and Ghost Hunters that, 24/7. I can assure Syfy that without original, written, produced, acted programming, I will not be watching them much. I find no entertainment in watching a bunch of superstitious morons stumble around in the dark.

I agree with charice.. If eureka is not going to be showing then I refuse to buy cable anymore. It was the only reason I buy cable..you ditch eureka then you in turn ditch me as a consumer.. I am pretty sure I am not the only person that feels this way either

At the end of Season 3 there was talk it would not come back, and then it did... there is a lot time and episodes between now and the projected end. It would not be the first series to extend it's shelf life due to good ratings, fan support, and good old fashion nerd rage.

This is easily one of the best shows that has run on that god-forsaken channel. I don't watch any of the current series, other than this one, so I guess that will be when the SyPhylis channel and I part ways. It's been a long time since they first aired, with one of my fave shows as their first offering: Dark Shadows.
