Syfy has ordered just six episodes for the sixth season of "Eureka," raising questions about the future of the show, reports EW.com’s Inside TV blog.
The series doesn’t have a commitment beyond those episodes, although Mark Stern, president of programming at Syfy, released a statement saying, "We are hopeful that this will not be the end of the franchise."
The comments came after Deadline.com reported the show would be coming to an end after the sixth season. Deadline reported in its update on the story after Stern’s statement: “Note that the statement doesn’t say ‘the end of the series.’ We will see …”
The current season 4.5 debuted last month with 2 million total viewers, the Deadline piece notes.
