‘Warehouse 13’ renewed, but effectively canceled by Syfy

SyfyThis story may sound familiar to some of you out there: Syfy has announced some good news that a beloved series is coming back, but at the same time they also sealed its fate by announcing that the final few episodes will be the last.

This time around, the show that we’re talking about here is “Warehouse 13.” Before we get to the negative, let’s just start by listing the accomplishments here. This series had a chance to stick around for five seasons, and it drew decent ratings and a pretty hefty fan following in the process. Unfortunately, the six episodes that are part of the show’s new renewal (per Deadline) are the end of the road for the show.

In justifying this order, here is what the network’s President of Original Content Mark Stern had to say:

“Warehouse 13 has been an incredible signature series for us … We are grateful to the loyal and passionate fan base and know that Jack Kenny, his gifted creative team, and outstanding ensemble cast will give them an amazing finale season.”

The past month has been an interesting one of highs, lows, and fans pulling their hair out over Syfy. The good news? “Defiance” has turned out to be a successful new series for the network, and has already been renewed for a second season. The bad news? The video game attached to it drew ho-hum reviews, and an episode of “The Big Bang Theory” blasted the network over their decision to cancel “Alphas”, which led to a few Twitter accounts getting a ton of hate mail.

This is not going to be great news to all fans, but at least the network was kind enough to actually put a bow on the series rather than pulling a CBS (which is an expression that would probably not make them happy) and just canceling a show without a proper ending even if they have been on for an extremely long time.

What’s your reaction to this cancellation? Be sure to sound off below!
