Re: Warehouse 13 renewed for fifth/final seasonfinal



That sucks. I love Warehouse 13. I don't think it's gone stale at all. 6 episodes??? WTF?!?!

At least they get to wrap up, I guess.

Stupid television.

Re: Warehouse 13 renewed for fifth/final seasonfinal

Didn't they also order a 6 episode season of Eureka, and then cancel it in favour of a single wrap up episode?

They announced a final six-episode season. Then announced the show was cancelled and there would be no more episodes, and then responded to the fan outcry and allowed one more episode to be produced to wrap the show up.

Syfy really doesn't like giving shows 5th seasons.

It's the sweet spot. If a show gets to five seasons they likely have 100 episodes which is the amount you need for syndication( MONEY!)

Five seasons on cable typically doesn't yield 100 episodes anymore. Most seasons have less than 20 episodes, sometimes only about half that, give or take a few. A six-episode final season would give Warehouse 13 a total of 65 episodes.

Re: Warehouse 13 renewed for fifth/final seasonfinal

It seems like 5 seasons is the breaking point for SyFy. by the time a show gets to 5 Seasons, it's true their set budget should be less, because by the time of reaching 5 Seasons you've likely got most of the sets you need for day to day episodes. However, it's also the point at which the salaries start to become to expensive for ratings a SyFy show gets, so, it probably comes down to a choice between an all new cast (Or at least replacing the most expensive lead(s)) or cutting the cast down to practically nothing

And really, a SciFi or Fantasy show making it to 5 Seasons is pretty much a rarity on US Television anyways. And really not a large percentage of shows in any Genre make it to 5 Seasons

We had the Trek shows (TNG, DS9, VOY), the Posthumus Roddenberry Shows (Andromeda and EFC - Both of which sank rather low in S5 with Budget cutbacks...Andromeda being stuck in one place; EFC cutting the long running cast). The Stargate shows (SG1 and SGA), Babylon 5 and a few other SyFy shows. (Sanctuary, Eureka maybe others?) and I guess you could also include LOST and Fringe. Can't really think of any more off hand

Re: Warehouse 13 renewed for fifth/final seasonfinal

I had a feeling this day was coming up soon. Syfy practically sabotaged the show's ratings when they allowed Season 3 to run into the fall premieres of Ashton Kutcher's debut on Two and a Half Men and Monday Night Football. The ratings took a big drop and never recovered and then Syfy let the show run even deeper into the fall television schedule the next year.

I was hoping they'd at least get a 13-episode final season but it seems they'll be getting what Eureka should have gotten last year.

I'll miss Warehouse 13. It was a ridiculous amount of fun.

Smallville (10 seasons) and Supernatural (9 seasons as of next season) are the US SFF shows that have had the longest runs since Stargate SG-1 ended.

The X-Files ran for 9 seasons.
I'm sad to hear this news, but the shows had a good run. I wish they could have gotten more than 6 episodes, but at least it's better than nothing and they'll know it's the end so they can be ready to tie things up nicely.

I still want to see Pete's mom and ex-wife in the same ep.

JANE: You were never good enough for my son!
AMANDA: I could never understand why he felt the need to drink to excess... until I met you. I would too if you were MY mother!



Six eps are better than none... or one!

I wonder if in the finale TPTB will kill off all our people, destroy the warehouse again and leave us with the image of the Jane & the other Regents buildling Warehouse 14, this time in Siberia or the Amazon.

Re: Warehouse 13 renewed for fifth/final seasonfinal

It'll be sad to see the Eurekaverse go. I wish we were getting more than six episodes - but hopefully it will give the writers time to wrap up any major storylines, especially if season four ends with a cliffhanger.

All I really want to see is a happy life for Artie. Maybe he can finally get together with Lindsay Wagner and ride happily off into the sunset in his little red car. Or maybe he can become a regent and hand the keys to the Warehouse over to Pete and Myka.
