ABC may not answer a lot of questions in the “Lost” universe this Sunday, but Syfy has answered a big question for its fans: Are “Eureka” and “Warehouse 13” in the same universe?
The answer appears to be a most definite yes.
Syfy’s top two scripted series are going to join forces in August for what will likely be a highly anticipated crossover episode, bringing the worlds of Sheriff Jack Carter and agents Pete Lattimer and Myka Bering together.
The news was announced Wednesday by Mark Stern, Syfy’s executive vice president of development, and co-head of original content for Universal Cable Productions. The crossover will actually take place in two episodes beginning with “Warehouse 13” on Aug. 3 in an episode called “13.1,” and then on “Eureka” Aug. 6 in an episode called “Crossing Over.”
Both episodes are filming this week, according to Syfy.
Neil Grayston gets the honor of heading over to “Warehouse 13” with his Douglas Fargo character, representing Global Dynamics from “Eureka” to help update the aging computer system at Warehouse 13. Doing that, of course, is bad, because a sentient computer virus is unleashed, and locks down the Warehouse.
Everything picks up again on Aug. 6 when Allison Scagliotti takes her “Warehouse 13” character of Claudia Donovan over to “Eureka,” hoping to see some technological wonders. She ends up getting more than what she bargained for when random objects start showing up around town.
Donovan will have to work with Carter (Colin Ferguson) and Fargo to solve the mystery of the strange anomalies, especially as it could have “deadly consequences” for Dr. Grant, played by “Battlestar Galactica” alum James Callis.
Callis won’t be the only familiar genre face in the midst of the crossovers. Rene Auberjonois, who played Odo in “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine” will guest in “Warehouse 13” as former warehouse agent Hugo Miller.
The second season of “Warehouse 13” — which stars Eddie McClintock, Joanne Kelly and Saul Rubinek — premieres July 6 at 9 p.m. ET on Syfy.
The fourth season of “Eureka” — starring Ferguson, Salli Richardson-Whitfield, Joe Morton, Erica Cerra and Grayston — premieres July 9 at 9 p.m ET on Syfy.
