Syfy has assured everyone that after wrapping up, Warehouse 13 will be turned over to “top men.” When questioned further, they replied:
Deadline has revealed that Syfy’s four year old series Warehouse 13 is being cancelled. Fortunately, the show will get a fifth season to wrap itself up.
“Warehouse 13 has been an incredible signature series for us,” said Syfy President of Original Content Mark Stern. “We are grateful to the loyal and passionate fan base and know that Jack Kenny, his gifted creative team, and outstanding ensemble cast will give them an amazing finale season.”
Unfortunately, it’s going to be a half season of only six episodes, though I suppose this shows that Syfy has learned its lesson from the backlash to the cancellation of Eureka that left show runners scrambling to rewrite the ending of a season they were in the midst of filming. Eventually the network okayed an extra final episode in order to give time to tie up loose ends and say goodbye to characters. Warehouse 13‘s final season has not yet begun filming, which hopefully leaves enough time for showrunners to bring the series to a satisfying close.
