Word began to spread that Warehouse 13 must have been renewed when a union web site listed under their “Current Productions” “Warehouse 13 (final)”, with production dates of June 24th-Aug 20th, at the studio location in Toronto – but what was interesting is that isn’t enough time for even a 13 episode season.
Now it appears that Syfy has renewed it for a final season of only six episodes, according to Deadline [Doc: This is confirmed now – see below]. This is better than nothing, of course, and as far as it being the final season, it’s not surprising given the show’s apparent bubble status. At least we should get a good wrap up.
But I can’t help but think about what happened with Eureka, where an apparent 6th and final season of six episodes was planned, and then canceled…
Update 5/17: Syfy has confirmed the order for 6 episodes for a final season to air in 2014. From the press release:

Former Battlestar Galactica and Caprica executive producer David Eick is taking over the reins of Falling Skies from Remi Aubuchon as showrunner.
What is somewhat interesting is that Eick is taking over production for Season 4 – which has not been greenlit yet, with Season 3 set to debut on June 9th. Eick is expected to get together a writing squad for Season 4 right away in anticipation of pickup, due to the long production cycle of the show. But it is fully expected to get that Season 4 order, being the top scripted show on TNT with the younger demos, and also being fully owned by TNT, which means TNT gets all the income from international sales as well.
Aubuchon, who worked with Eick on Caprica, is leaving after serving in the role for two seasons.
Also, Season 2 of Falling Skies hits shelves and doorsteps on June 4th on [sfs=1316]Blu-ray[/sfs] and [sfs=1317]DVD[/sfs]. You can also check out our Sci-Fi TV Store for previous seasons and Amazon Instant Video availability.
