THE WAREHOUSE 13 TEAM BATTLES TO SAVE THE WORLD — AND ARTIE — WHEN SEASON 4.5 RETURNS TO SYFY
PREMIERES MONDAY, APRIL 29 IN NEW 10PM TIME PERIOD
NEW YORK – February 26, 2013 – The stakes for the Warehouse – and the world – have never been higher when Syfy’s hit series Warehouse 13 returns for the final 10 episodes of Season 4.5, beginning Monday, April 29 in its new 10PM (ET/PT) time slot.
In the premiere episode “The Living and the Dead,” the series picks up on the stunning, mid-season cliffhanger. Artie (Saul Rubinek) has infected the Warehouse Team – and the world –with the Black Orchid Artifact’s deadly “Sweating Sickness.”
If Pete (Eddie McClintock), Myka (Joanne Kelly), Claudia (Allison Scagliotti) and Steve (Aaron Ashmore) can’t reverse what Artie has done, the world will be engulfed by the deadliest pandemic since the Dark Ages. But the Team is already succumbing to the disease’s symptoms as they race to stop the artifact sickness — before it stops them.
Among the new Season 4.5 guest stars are Polly Walker (Caprica, Rome), who portrays Charlotte Dupres, a historian who may know more about the Warehouse than she lets on. Walker’s multi-episode arc begins in the premiere. Later in the season, Kelly Hu (The Scorpion King, Cradle 2 the Grave) joins the cast as Abigail Cho, a protégé of Mrs. Frederic (CCH Pounder).
Returning Season 4.5 guest stars include Jaime Murray as H.G. Wells and Kate Mulgrew as Jane Lattimer.
The highly anticipated series Defiance will lead into Warehouse 13 at 9PM (ET/PT), comprising Syfy’s new Powerful Mondays programming block.
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.
