Get More: Cancellations, News, Scoop

Eureka fans, do you want the bad news or the bad news first?

Syfy has both canceled the five-year-old drama series and scrapped plans to order an abbreviated sixth season. The previously-ordered fifth season will now be the show’s last.

“After painstaking consideration, we have had to make the difficult business decision to not order a season six of Eureka,” the cabler said in a statement. “But Eureka is not over yet. There is a new holiday episode this December and 12 stellar episodes set to debut next year, marking its fifth season and six memorable years on Syfy. The 2012 episodes are some of the best we’ve seen, and will bring this great series to a satisfying end. We are very grateful to Bruce Miller and Jaime Paglia, their team of incredible writers, and an amazing cast and crew who have consistently delivered a series we continue to be very proud of. We thank the fans for their support of this show and know they will enjoy its final season in 2012.

Thoughts?! Are you devastated? Do you take some comfort in knowing that there’s still one more season to go? Please deposit your two cents in the comments section.

  • Eureka is one of the best written shows I’ve ever watched. I can’t believe they cancelled it. And from what I am reading it’s for some reality show, people are writing books about how America is getting dumber, and maybe bad television is needed for the masses but there are some of us who need and appreciate well written script and actors and actresses that do an awesome job of delivery.

    It would be nice if this series would at the very least end up in print, would love to at least read all the wonderful new adventures they had planned for a season six.
