Syfy decides not to order a 6th season of Eureka

We told you last week that we were enjoying the current fourth season of Eureka, were looking forward to the fifth (filming now) and were wondering what was up with the reportedly shortened sixth. Now we (sadly) know.

Syfy today released the following statement.

After painstaking consideration, we have had to make the difficult business decision to not order a season six of Eureka. 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.

Eureka's current fourth season continues to air Monday nights at 8/7C.
