What’s going on with Eureka?
Syfy confirms its ordered a mere six episodes for a sixth season of the veteran sci-fi drama. But the network seems to be disputing a report that the shortened order definitely marks the end of the series.
In a statement issued to EW, Mark Stern, president of programing at Syfy, says: “[Producers] Bruce Miller and Jaime Paglia have brought a creative vitality to Eureka that has kept it fresh and inventive. Although we do not have a commitment beyond six episodes for the sixth season, we are hopeful that this will not be the end of the franchise.”
Notice Stern says “franchise” at the end here instead of “show” or “series.” Spin-off? Hmm…
