Damn


I'm doubtful about a proper ending... Syfy had prematurely announced a 6 episode 6th season before then scrapping that idea and just cancelling it after season 5... I think those 6 would have been for tying things up.

The reason season 3 and 4 were each split in two was because they each had larger orders than seasons 1 and 2.

Season 1: 12 eps, started in July 2006.

Season 2: 13 eps, started in July 2007.

Season 3: 18 eps, first set of 8 started in July 2008, second set of 10 started in July 2009.

Season 4: 19 eps, first set of 9 eps started in July 2010, second set of 10 in July 2011. There was also a Christmas special this season.

I don't know what Haven's ratings are like, but Warehouse 13 is AFAIK still Syfy's highest rated show, and although it features some SFX it's probably still cheaper than Eureka.

Yup.

And we could not maintain the quality of our show with the cuts it would take to make us profitable for Syfy's new parent company.
