After a sizzling start that set viewership records for Syfy and a few seasons of being the network's top show, the warehouse is closing for good. Syfy has renewed Warehouse 13 for a fifth and final season that will run for only six episodes to wrap up the series in 2014. Warehouse 13 is currently in the second half of its fourth season, with the finale set to air later this summer.
The series stars Saul Rubinek, Eddie McClintock, Joanne Kelly, Allison Scagliotti, and Aaron Ashmore as protectors of rare supernatural and paranormal artifacts which are housed in the titular warehouse.
After regularly breaking 3 million viewers (and network ratings records) in its first season, Warehouse 13's fourth season has settled into well under 2 million viewers, with the most recent episode hitting a series-low 1.27 million viewers.
“Warehouse 13 has been an incredible signature series for us," Syfy president Mark Stern said in a statement. "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.”
Warehouse 13 airs Monday nights at 10pm after Defiance.
