    Default Warehouse 13 Season 2 - Hopes/Fears/Predictions (contains season 1 spoilers)

    With the recent news of the renwal for season 2:

    Warehouse 13 - Renewed for 2nd Season

    According to Variety Syfy has re-upped Warehouse 13 for a second season.

    This new show, about Secret Service agents who look into "missing and newly found supernatural objects is the most-watched show in Syfy's 17-year history, averaging 3.7 million viewers a week and 1.4 million in the 18-49 demo."

    Nobody is really surprised at this news as the show has performed so well. In fact, among women it has about 50% female viewership. Currently, 13 episodes have been ordered for the second season but those numbers could go up for future ones.

    "We took a look at doing 20 episodes, but for logistic and financial reasons, it didn't make sense to do that right now, but I wouldn't rule it out," stated Syfy president Dave Howe.

    This thread is to discusses your hopes, fears and predicitons for the shows 2nd season.

    I'm actually very happy that it's a 13 episode season. A lot of shows suffer when faced with having to write a significantly larger number of scripts per season.

    I'd like to see some Sci Fi staple guest stars in the way that Dollhouse is getting a few next year.

    Also, REALLY would like to see more Claudia

    Well they've has some in season one with the likes of Tricia Helfer and Joe Flannigan. My biggest issue, so far has been when they have had familiar faces they really haven't utilized them to well. So if they go for more familiar faces in season 2, i hope the work them better into the episodes.

    I'm not sure I totally agree with you on guest stars. I felt that Tricia Helfer worked very well in the story she guested in, she was a good fit as a guest who didn't steal the thunder of the series stars.

    Joe Flanigan's appearance IMO, just went to show that maybe he's not an especially versatile actor. He worked very well as Sheppard, but I'm starting to suspect that maybe that's because the writers wrote the role around JF rather than him acting to a script.


    ...more guest appearances would resolve this discussion easily, wouldn't it?

    I agree its important for the guest not to overshadow the stars, but if you have a known guest you want to use them rather than wallpaper which is how it felt IMO in the case of TH. Its not impossible to write your guest in a way that still gets the most out of them without putting given them the spotlight. Granted this was back in episode 2 and that its very important to establish the show and the cast based on their own merits. So I'm hopefully in when it comes to season 2, they'll find a good balance with this, since they've had a season 2 establish themselves.

    I do agree with what you said about JF.

    Personally I like them to not to use so many guest stars. New characters to get to know if you not always thinking about the old characters they use to play.

    Personally, I like this show using guest stars from past SyFy shows. I hope it continues every now and then.

    The only reason I even tuned in to Warehouse in the first place was to see Joe Flanigan in that episode. And then I decided to keep watching the show. So, at least for one fan, the guest casting worked.
    And I thought JF's performance was the best thing about that particular episode, I hope they bring him back next season for an appearance.
    (sure didn't hurt the ratings, did it? )

    I would not mind guest stars later on in the series but I just it should build up it own fan base first, and then bring in the guest stars later on, may be in the second season. I just do not want it to become every episode there someone from Stargate or star trek or buffy or some other scifi/syfy show.

    I don't think we have to worry about it becoming something that happens in almost every episode. A few a season would be fine with me.

    I think having some well known guest not just well known to scifi fans, but to people that may not watch much scifi but wants to see that person.

    Personally, I'd like to see more of their backstories, particularly Artie's, Leena's, Mrs. Frederic, etc.

    It would be really cool if they got Patrick Stewart to guest star. But I guess that's probably not possible.

    I just hope that

    So Warehouse 13 has the highest ratings of any SyFy show ever and it doesn't make sense to make more than 13 episodes for financial reasons? Anyone else find that statement odd?

    I'm fine with a shorter season, but the logic there is a little off. I'm hoping they up it to between 16-18 episodes though...still shorter than average, but I wish I had a couple more episodes!

    I'm hoping to see the Warehouse people use more Artifacts during season 2, and maybe start planting seeds of some sort of kabal(sp?) that collects artifacts for evil!
