Why Eureka renewal has Erica Cerra singing

http://scifiwire.com/2009/08/why-eureka-renewal-has-er.php

It looks like Deputy Lupo will be patrolling Eureka for a long time to come: Syfy just renewed its hit series for a fourth season, right in the midst of season three, and no one is happier about the turn of events than Erica Cerra, who plays the show's tough, gun-loving cop.

"We were thrilled, and more so that it's 22 episodes," Cerra said last week in an exclusive telephone interview. "Last year they made an attempt to do 21, I believe it was, and we got cut down to 18 because of the writers' strike. So we're thrilled, and the way we found out was so much fun, getting word before the end of the season. You're usually waiting until much later [to get word of renewal or cancellation]. I love working on this show, and we have a really great cast and crew, and we've got a good thing going. It's nice."

Hmm....while I'm obviously THRILLED about getting a season 4, I'm not so sure about a 22 episode order.

I actually really like Eureka as a brief, glorious summer affair year after year. It'ce something nice to look forward to in a lull during the TV year. 22 episodes, while being much longer and requiring a hell of a lot more of the writing staff, also suggests that Eureka might become a fall series....

Quantity over Quality anyone?

Well that's exactly what I'm concerned about. Take BSG for instance. Stellar 13-episode first season, not a bad one in the lot. Second and third seasons lengthened to 20 episodes, and you could tell in the back halves of each that they were running low on ideas until their season finales--resulting in a glut of halfassed episodes in the .5 seasons both years. The only reason that season 4 escaped the same fate was because of the writers strike, allowing some time for fresh ideas to brew up and be translated into decent stories.

Eureka consistently sets a high bar for itself; when the episodes aren't awesome, they're at least decent. I don't want that to stop.

I'm also a little worried that Sci Fi is going to make them take the SG/BSG midseason approach--do 10 episodes, end on a cliffhanger and make us wait 6+ months for resolution. I don't want that for Eureka either.

I agree with you. BSG for Season 2 and Season 3, well more Season 3, imo, had a lot of below par eps that just dragged, and it really hurt the show, imo. The same goes for the Stargates, you got eps that dragged and bored the heck out of you.

well I disagree, both season 2,3,4 of BSG were very under par. With the last half of season 4 being the worst.

It's great news. We may even get more eps of W13 for the 2nd season, they are still discussing that at SyFy. Glad we have these two shows because not sure how SGU is going to be yet. Could be a bomb.

Haven't seen W13 yet, it's starting this week here in the UK so may take a look. I do love Eureka though, it's just one of those shows that makes me smile.:)

As for SGU...well I won't be watching that at all. I'm one of the people who feels that Atlantis had a couple more seasons left in it, yet it was pushed aside for this new incarnation. On principle I just can't bring myself to watch it. Plus it really doesn't excite me like SG-1 or SGA did when they both started.

I'd hate to have what they did this year as well. Season 3.0, 3.5, 4.0, 4.5? Although, I seriously love that we're getting 22 more eps!!

I don't know for sure, but EUReKA wouldn't work without Carter. I sincerely hope so!

Colin Ferguson will be back. Jordan Hinson and Jaime Ray Newman were offered roles on new series for broadcast TV. So going for more exposure (and money) is a natural career decision.

I will miss Zoe. She wasn't the stereotypical teenager or strictly comedy element often seen on many shows. Plus it was nice to see what the kids did in school and made science and math cool. The chemistry between Carter and Zoe will be hard to replace plus Lupo and Zoe moments were fun too.

Guess Carter will get another love interest sooner or later.

Okay, I guess writers' strike screwed me up more than I thought because I could have swore that this last season was season 4. LOL!




I will miss Zoe.

I'll miss Zoe too, she was so funny!

No! I've been waiting, very nicely I might add, for apparenly three season for Carter and Allison to finally realize they are made for each, and ever time I think they close someone get in the way! Dry cleaning lady, Nate,(insert a couple name here) and finally it looked like it may happen Tess step in! And too make it worst I actually liked Tess! :confused:

I wouldn't jump the gun on casting decisions just yet. Kelsey Grammer's last foray into non-Frasier Crane territory bombed. Plus, filming is probably either done or close to done for this year for Hank anyway, so there's a good chance she won't be working once filming time for Eureka S4 comes along.

I'm cautiously optimistic about Jaime Ray Newman returning too. I'm betting (and hoping) Eastwick will flop, though even if it doesn't she's said that filming schedules will probably allow her to return to Eureka anyway. I hope so. She's an awesome character, and makes some tremendous eye candy too :D



I'm really glad the Carter/Allison angle is finally dead, and I hope it stays that way. Season 1 played it out as much as I ever wanted it to, and it's been great seeing the show move away from it.

No offince, but I'm not! I'm still hoping and praying! And while the show did some what move away from it, it still hints at it. At least I think.

I still saw hints. In fact, I'm kind of curious how season 4 will shape up to that last ep of season 1. The time frame will be about the same, won't it?

For the record, I was/am a Nathan/Allison shipper too. None of all of this interferes with my OTP - Jack/SARAH!

Are you referencing to "PHOENIX RISING" season 2? If so, then I don't believe the timeline is the same. Only b/c of a statement Carter said. Something the lines of Nate left making way for him and Allison. Which would in theory mean, that in the alternate timeline Carter and Allison were together when, in this timeline, Nate and Allison were together.

Hopefully that means since... Alternate timelines makes things hard to explain.

I just think the Carter/Allison thing has been dragged out for too long. I still liked the episode where they are together in the future, though. I wonder why Allison's son was more communicative in that episode too.
