Warehouse 13 TO OPEN ITS DOORS FOR THE FINAL TIME ON JUNE 24TH

 

SYFY’S LONG-RUNNING SERIES WILL RETURN WITH SIX ALL-NEW EPISODES IN 2014

 

NEW YORK – June 6, 2013 – Syfy announced today that Warehouse 13, the Emmy Award-nominated, long-running hit series, will commence production on its fifth and final season June 24th in Toronto.

 

The six all-new episodes of Season 5 will premiere in 2014.

 

Said Warehouse 13 showrunner and executive producer Jack Kenny “Warehouse 13 has been my dream job these past four years.  These last six episodes will be a gift from my brilliant writing staff and the best cast and crew in television to our amazingly loyal fans. I’m thrilled that we can build the climax of our Warehouse tale to a satisfying conclusion.”

 

Season 4 of Warehouse 13 is currently airing Mondays at 10PM (ET/PT) following the new hit series Defiance, which airs at 9PM.

 

Warehouse 13 follows a team of government agents who work at a massive, top-secret storage facility in windswept South Dakota, which houses every strange artifact, mysterious relic, fantastical object and preternatural souvenir ever collected by the U.S. government. The Warehouse’s caretaker Artie Nielsen (Saul Rubinek) charges Pete Lattimer (Eddie McClintock), Myka Bering (Joanne Kelly), Claudia Donovan (Allison Scagliotti) and Steve Jinks (Aaron Ashmore) with chasing down reports of Supernatural and paranormal activity in search of new objects to cache at the Warehouse, as well as helping him control the Warehouse itself.

 

Warehouse 13 is produced for Syfy by Universal Cable Productions. Jack Kenny (The Book of Daniel) is executive producer and showrunner.

    I guess five (short) years is good for a cable program, but there really isn’t anything left that is very compelling on that channel. Defiance has performed well but it’s kind of boring. Continuum is interesting, but hardly a Syfy original (likely to be available later on DVD/Netflix/etc.,) the “new” Friday shows premiering this week were both cancelled on their original networks… We are a long way from shows like Stargate and Eureka.

  • James

    The new shows are not on Friday, but air back to back on Sat instead of a tv movie. So basically, canceled tv shows for 13 weeks instead of SyFy Sat Night movies.

  • NJ Viewer

    Guess 5 years is how long successful TV series run these days. Too bad. This was one of my favorite programs.

  • MadMikeee

    SYFY’S LONG-RUNNING SERIES , seriously?? 5 years is not “long running” but I guess in the case of Syfy it is. Guess they need to make more room for their craptacular “B” movies (Which are so awful they shouldn’t even be considered B movies, B movies are actually entertaining.) As well as Wrastlin and other garbage that has ZERO right being on a sci-fi channel.

    All done at this point, nothing they are producing is even remotely interesting to me other than Defiance, and that is already starting to bore me.

  • Connman

    To bad – my favorite (really only) SyFy show. Looks like there will be one less network to be concerned about after these last 6 episodes…

  • Shiro

    nothing interesting left in this network. Defiance is just money waste for them, expensive but rating sucks (yeah, it got quite high rating compared to other show but to see how expensive it is, the rating they got is not worth it), boring and doesn’t have direction. rest in peace SyFy (maybe 5 years from now)

  • PurpleDrazi

    there really isn’t anything left that is very compelling on that channel.

    Agreed! I consider WH13 to be the last of the great SciFi channel shows.

  • Brian

    That’s ll the episodes they are giving us for a fifth season??seriously ?
    What total &&&king Idiots they are at Syfy! I am Done with them after this show ends..and BTW ..Defiance SUCKS!

  • Lin S

    I really like W13. Too bad they are canceling this show! I agree that the wrestling does not belong on this channel; but of course maybe the powers to be think it is science, becuz it certainly is fiction! I also heard they were going to make H G Welles into a series, but who knows.

  • Simon

    I found the last season of W13 just plodding through the motions, and now that I have seen the final episodes am really wishing they’d continue with the series as it does seem to have picked back up.

    To cancel a show with declinig ratings/viewers is a normal process, but with Warehouse 13 it should not go this way and not that fast, despite or because the actual main character has the same name as the founder of the evaluation model, which now kills the show.
    Warehouse 13 has humor, style, good and likeable actors, interesting stories and locations, and is sometimes thrilling. There are good actors, nice scripts, fine guest stars, interesting and far-fetched stories and premises, mostly well, when not, from time to time, brilliantly executed.
    Furthermore, it’s potential is far not exhausted by now.
    There could be a lot more stories and artefacts, a lot more problems to solve, for at least two or three further seasons.
    People of all ages do like W13 for one of the characteristics mentioned above.
    And maybe somes kid are motivated to find out the truth about historic events and persons occuring in the show, like the Count of Saint Germain (superbly depicted by James Marsters), or now Paracelsus, who was of course not a rude alchemist but an ambitious medical doctor (Agrippa von Nettesheim would have been better as he was more an experimenting alchemist than Paracelsus).
    Why the ratings really declined has to be analyzed and then there have to be taken the proper measures to correct, which I would locate in better storytelling/scriptwriting/evolving the charcters and so on.
    To throw away a gem is of no good for the thrower. And W13 is a rare gem of a show that is simply engoying the audience., especially when it shines, which occurs not so seldom.

    What I mainly hate about this decision is that there seems to be no way to continue the show on another channel. They cannot go for a Warehouse 13.1 or 14 (which should be then located in China ? sorry for the little joke) say, on NBC or Fox, if Syfy won’t let them, and they won’t for sure.

    I think there should be a huge outburst of resistance against the cancellation of W13. Only this could make the Channel rethink and renew. Please, people, do something about !
