The SyFy show was in negotiations to get six episodes for its sixth and final season, but obviously the ball was dropped on that deal, because it has been announced that their FIFTH season will be their last.
Eureka, the sci-fi series about a fictional Oregon town inhabited by geniuses and scientists, promises to close on a satisfying end.
To console fans, SyFy 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├óΓé¼Γäóve 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.
Sigh. That sucks. Even Eureeka’s Castle got a full six seasons!
