Just last week SYFY ordered six episodes for season six of Eureka leading some (most?) to speculate that it would be the last.
Turns out they were wrong as the season six episodes have been dropped.
EW reports, "The 13-episode fifth season that was ordered last year, which includes a holiday special, is going to be the final season of Eureka."
SYFY released the following 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.“
