With Syfy having a hard time keeping secrets (we all knew “Warehouse 13” was coming back a week ago, the cable channel makes it official that Pete, Myka, Artie and Claudia will be back for a Season 4.
“Under executive producer Jack Kenny’s leadership, this superlative team of writers, cast and crew continue to turn out a series that only gets better and better with every episode,” Syfy original content president Mark Stern said in a release. “‘Warehouse 13’ is deservedly the most popular series in our history, and we’re delighted to renew it for a fourth season.”
Just to ensure that everyone would write about “Warehouse 13” again, Syfy released audience numbers for Season 3’s first two weeks. They showed a 15 percent gain in adults 18 to 49 — a key advertising demographic — as well as smaller gains in adults 25 to 54 (5 percent) and in total viewers (4 percent).
That equates to 3.17 million total viewers through the first five episodes, with just under 1.7 million viewers between the ages of 25 and 54. That’s enough for a 2.3 household rating.
“Warehouse 13” has not suffered at all moving to Mondays this season, sandwiched by the veteran “Eureka” and the new series “Alphas.” Unfortunately, “Eureka” did not survive, however, rumors continue to circulate that Syfy will give “Alphas” a second season.
This season included the addition of a new regular, Aaron Ashmore of “Smallville” fame, who plays ATF agent Jinks, who is the Judge Judy of the Warehouse (translation: He’s a human lie detector).
Syfy has suffered some negative publicity this past week after renewing the show for an abbreviated season, only to turn around and cancel it. Syfy, however, did come back and ordered one additional episode to allow it to wrap up the series.
Before “Warehouse 13,” “Eureka” was Syfy’s all-time most successful series, but had to give up that crown to “Warehouse 13” early on.
“Warehouse 13” stars Eddie McClintock, Joanne Kelly, Saul Rubinek and Allison Scagliotti.
