    If the ratings remain steady, then maybe, just maybe there could be the possibility of movies down the line. *crosses fingers, eyes, toes, etc.*

    This is so sad because I just started regularly watching Eureka again and was looking forward to another couple of seasons. It sounds like Eureka could have continued under the old guard, but the new owners are more fiscally conservative. That may be good for Syfy's bottom line, but it sucks if you're a fan of a long-running expensive show.
    Well I was sorta correct, Syfy just ordered one more episode to be the finale, so looks like we will get that closure.

    It truly is bad, when a network wants a series but cannot afford it and has to cancel it. Normally a show is not profitable and so they cancel it, that is not the case with Eureka.

    I'm glad to hear of the extra episode order. That's something anyway.

    Yeah, that extra episode is better than nothing. And, I agree that it is sad when a network can't afford to continue a series even though they wish they could. Financial reality is a *****. That's why I'm wondering if all future shows will be in the 13-episode format instead of the more expensive 20-episode format.

    It's great that they are allowing closure by ordering an extra episode. Now they need to learn not to announce green-lit seasons until all of the i's are dotted and the t's crossed. It's inconceivable that a network can promise the fans and writers an extra season and then back out of it. Real networks don't pull crap like that.

    It's hard for scripted shows to match the profit margins of the nonscripted crap that airs on the channel. They really need to rename the network at some point.

    Wait....the original order was for a 13 episode season 5. So the additional episode order takes it up to being a 14 episode final season?

    Yes. This year's Christmas episode is part of S5's order, and then we'll have 13 episodes next year.

    Any chance this extra episode could be a kind of feature length finale.

    It'd be nice, but I wouldn't bank on it. The fact that Syfylis ordered another episode at all is unprecedented kindness on their part. Lightning isn't likely to strike twice.

    That would be a good idea, especially at this late date. IMO, Syfy should consider a feature length finale as a damage-control move to try to regain goodwill.

    It could happen, I can see there being like a 2 Hour finale.

    BTW, I think Syfy should change their mission statement from "Imagine Greater" to "Indian Givers" lol.

    I think a double-length final episode would be fantastic (I'm visualizing a two-hour wrap-up finale), but I agree with DigiFluid that it's probably not likely. I'm grateful that we get this much, I really am, considering other shows that haven't been so lucky.

    I'm slowly getting used to the idea of no more Eureka, but it's still a little depressing. This has been my "cheer me up" show for several years now, even when it wasn't at its best, and I'm really really going to miss it. I guess that's what the DVDs are for though, right?

    It does make me wonder about Warehouse 13's future though. Will Syfy's apparent five-season rule apply to them too? That would get them through 2013. But that would also mean the show's already almost half-way through its run, and to me it feels like it's just really getting started. Weird.

    I think part of the problem (for me) is that five 13 episode seasons just doesn't feel like five regular-length seasons does. SGA had five seasons and ended with 100 episodes. Eureka will have had five seasons and will end with 77. If Warehouse 13 runs for five seasons, it will have about 65 episodes. *shrugs*

    Anytime a show gets to it's 5th season, it truly takes a lot to get it past there. Increased ratings certainly help, but the older a series gets as you know the expenses get higher.

    As per W13 talks for a 4th season renewal are already in the works, what will they do if it makes it to a 5th season and still the higest rated show on the network? That truly is a good question. W13 is even beating Wrestling on Syfy.

    I'm happy that they will at least get a final episode to wrap up things. None of the Stargates got that.

    I'm sorry, but when have you ever heard a network that is not the network-that-shall-not-be-named doing this to a POPULAR TV series that was its #2-#1 highest rated original scripted series? None. The only time this may have happened is when a series went on for like 9-10 seasons like The X-Files and Smallville, but when it lasts that long I don't mind it ending. But SyFy does this to EVERY series. I'm sorry, but series should be canceled for two reasons: 1) low ratings (SGU) 2) Producers end it on their own terms (Babylon 5, Battlestar Galactica, Lost, and hopefully Fringe, but that's yet to be seen). And no network...NO NETWORK. HAS. EVER. PROMISED. A SEASON. AND. TAKEN. IT. BACK!!!! NONE! Unless I'm missing something, SYFY IS THE ONLY NETWORK THAT DOES THIS. And not only have they done this once, they did this TWICE with Farscape. And you could even say they did it three times when they promised future Stargate Sg-1 and Atlantis movies and didn't deliver. Yes, I know that MGM was the fault for not getting the movies, but nothing is stopping SyFy from ordering a couple movies for the fans themselves. I mean, they have enough money to make crappy b-grade movies that nobody cares about.

    No network in their right mind would pull this sort of crap on fans. Especially a network that was supposedly made for this sort of programming and is supposed to understand sci-fi fans. Not even TNT, who renewed Falling Skies for a second season after just one episode would pull something like this on a loyal audience that was giving them numbers.
    That is just my two cents.

    Here's a thought, It wasn't the networks choice but the people who own them. The network apparently wanted more Eureka, just the bean counters moved in and made a MASSIVE mess. Syfy's PR dept truly needs to be gone, every crisis that comes up they handled like a ham fisted mess, starting way back at the end of Farscape. Silence is sometimes golden, and these Igjits need to know when to shut thier mouths.

    And Sanctuary will be in it's 5th season too in 2013. SyFy can kill two shows in one year. Yippee.

    Does anybody know whether Eureka actually run at a loss or whether it just didn't make enough? I get the impression it's the latter which if right, you have to question the mentality of a bean counter who say's the networks highest rated scifi show isn't profitable enough so cancel it, it's not like people are going to watch it's replacement.
