Syfy has confirmed that Eureka will be sticking around for a sixth season. The network has ordered up six episodes for Season 6 of the sci-fi series, which is currently still airing the back half of its fourth season. The show was renewed for a fifth season last year.
While there are rumors that the series will end after its shortened sixth season, Syfy president of original content, Mark Stern, expressed hope that there is still life in the show.
"[Producers] Bruce Miller and Jaime Paglia have brought a creative vitality to Eureka that has kept it fresh and inventive," he told The Hollywood Reporter. "Although we do not have a commitment beyond six episodes for the sixth season, we are hopeful that this will not be the end of the franchise."
