News: SyFy Take A Bath On EUREKA, Cancels Sixth Season

Sorry EUREKA fans (anyone?) but the Syfy network have had a change of heart. After initially promising a sixth season, they've now issued a statement explaining their decision to call the whole thing off...

“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.

I'll hold my hands up, I dropped out of EUREKA (or A TOWN CALLED EUREKA as it's annoyingly known in the UK) quite early on, but I understand how devastating it is for fans when a show gets cancelled. At least EUREKA fans have a final batch of season episodes to look forward to, and the possibility of closure. That's a courtesy rarely extended to many other genre shows.

Were you a fan of EUREKA? Have the rest of us been missing out? Is SyFy right to end the series here? Let us know with your comments below!

Yes, I'm a fan of Eureka and will be sad to see it disappear from the TV schedules. It had some good characters in it with some light-hearted storylines, never very serious but maybe that's what turned people off, it being a little too inconsequential with not enough drama or cliff-hanger endings to keep viewers coming back each week.

Oh well, it was great while it lasted.
