Eureka close to renewal

With any luck, fans of quirky science fiction series Eureka will be shouting just that next season. Sci Fi Channel is reportedly close to renewing the series, according to Variety.

The show follows the strange happenings in Eureka, a Pacific Northwest town populated by geniuses. Colin Ferguson stars as a US Marshall stranded in the town and trying to cope with all the brilliance.

"[Eureka] has hit its pulse, and its heart," said Bonnie Hammer, president of USA and Sci Fi networks. "It's reaching its stride in character development, and blends mystery with quirky humor."

Eureka has averaged 2.76 million viewers a week, helping Sci Fi become the 10th-highest-rated network in total prime-time viewers for the third quarter of this year. Other ratings winners for the network are Battlestar Galactica, Stargate Atlantis, and the final season of Stargate: SG-1.

Eureka is one of the better series (comedy-sci/fi) on TV. I agree that there is too much ECW + reality crap. Thanks for all the good stuff you do bring to us. Keep up the good work!!!!

I love this show. It's quirky, intelligent, and funny, but won't this be Season Three that I'm so looking forward to? Please, let's keep shows like this one and Stargate going. SciFi is scheduling too many new shows these days that I have no remote interest in watching. ECW and bad reality shows? What a complete waste of space!

Thank goodness. I love Eureka, which I was able to see thanks to the iTunes store. I finished watching season 1 already so I hope they do make a season 2 so I can enjoy more of this show.

Whoever dreamed up this series was really clever. I haver read/watched a lot of science fiction, and I do not recalll any plot/setting/backstory anything like this one. And it is good!

I hope Eureka gets another season, it has become one of my fav shows this summer. It isn't total sciencey or all drama either but a good mix and it has humor. I can't wait for season two!

if they don't pick this show up for another season they are crazy. it is one of those sci-fi shows you don't have to be a HARDCORE sci-fi fan to watch. it's actually more of a comedy if you ask me.

I love this show. Enough 'science' to make it interesting. The people are all multi-faceted. Way COOL. Here's to hoping it makes it back.

I've watched every episode from the beginning, and this is, by far, one of the smartest shows on TV. Unfortunately, smart doesn't always equal ratings, and since money weighs more than creativity, I'm hoping that there is enough intelligent life down here to keep the show on the air. If Sci-Fi were to run a promotional campaign similar to what they've done for Stargate and Battlestar Galactica, they could very easily begin to rival the major networks for viewership!



Now for the grovelling...Please bring Eureka back!

Eureka is a quirky show, and I like it. I didn't watch all the episodes (School, you know), but I really hope they bring this back. Go SciFi!

Yeah - Its a great show - the only duffish episode was the last one about S.A.R.A.H.



I hope they keep the quality of the ideas up.



Keep it coming!

Best Sci-Fi series of the season.

Everyone I know loves it.

Surely the Sci Fi channel is smart enough to realize they have a Big Hit and will bring it back
