Eureka axed

Syfy reverses its decision to renew the series

Since last week’s announcement that Eureka would be granted a final six-episode season, the Syfy network has changed its mind. The official press release says:

“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.”

Here’s what some of the SciFiNow readers thought on Twitter

Feeling like I shouldn’t get too attached to Syfy Original Series….!
More Ghost Hunting programming, Obviously that is the way @Syfy needs to go.
Shame about #Eureka, scifi type shows don’t stand a chance when tv execs want reality type shows.
If WH13 gets canceled too I’ll have no reason to watch the @syfy channel at all… Kinda sad… :(
