Warehouse 13 Renewed for Final Season
It’s a bittersweet moment. What should have initially been taken as good news quickly and swiftly kicked any Warehouse 13 fan directly in the crotch. On the one hand, it’s always good news to see a show you love being renewed for another season, but on the other, it’s a tough pill to swallow knowing that the next season will be the show’s last. Syfy announced Friday that Warehouse 13 will be returning for its fifth season, but the remaining episodes will be its last. Craig Engler, handler of the @Syfy Twitter name, released the following tweet Friday morning.[blackbirdpie url=”https://twitter.com/Syfy/status/335402712160157697″]
President and Head of Original Content Mark Stern also released the following: “Warehouse 13 has been an incredible signature series for us. We are grateful to the loyal and passionate fan base and know that Jack Kenny, his gifted creative team, and outstanding ensemble cast will give them an amazing finale season.”
Several members of the cast also posted a number of tweets confirming the news, including Sal Rubinek and Allison Scagliotti, better known as Arty and Claudia on the show.[blackbirdpie url=”https://twitter.com/saulrubinek/status/335416711861915648″] [blackbirdpie url=”https://twitter.com/allisonscag/status/335561269505556480″]
Season five will run six hour-long episodes to send off the warehouse and its agents. This news comes right in the middle of Warehouse 13’s second half of season four, which airs Monday nights on Syfy. It’s unclear whether the show is being cancelled on the part of Syfy or being wrapped up by the directors intentionally. Though given Syfy’s track record of cancelling some of there more popular shows, including Eureka and more recently Alphas, it wouldn’t come as too much of surprise if Syfy had pulled the plug.
Syfy has been the home of Warehouse 13 since it originally came on air in the summer of 2009 and it’s been a wild ride ever since. Over the course of its four seasons, and soon to be five, fans and viewers could not get enough of the adventures of Pete Lattimer and Myka Bering. There was something special about Warehouse 13, from the historical re-imagining of classic history and folklore to the unique cheesiness that only it could pull off. Regardless of the reason for the show ending, it’s unfortunate to see such a great, enjoyable series reach its final conclusion, but at least the crew will have enough time to give Warehouse 13 the send off it deserves.
