This will be a year of sad countdowns, as we are set to lose the Eleventh Doctor, and Warehouse 13 heads into its final season. It’s at least a blessing that we know, and more important the writers know, far in advance, so that the final seasons for a beloved character and a beloved show will be developed appropriately.
Syfy today announced that production of Warehouse 13‘s final season will begin later this month. Here’s the press release:
WAREHOUSE 13 TO OPEN ITS DOORS FOR THE FINAL TIME ON JUNE 24TH
NEW YORK – June 6, 2013 – Syfy announced today that Warehouse 13, the Emmy Award-nominated, long-running hit series, will commence production on its fifth and final season June 24th in Toronto.
The six all-new episodes of Season 5 will premiere in 2014.
Said Warehouse 13 showrunner and executive producer Jack Kenny “Warehouse 13 has been my dream job these past four years. These last six episodes will be a gift from my brilliant writing staff and the best cast and crew in television to our amazingly loyal fans. I’m thrilled that we can build the climax of our Warehouse tale to a satisfying conclusion.”
Season 4 of Warehouse 13 is currently airing Mondays at 10PM (ET/PT) following the new hit series Defiance, which airs at 9PM.
Warehouse 13 follows a team of government agents who work at a massive, top-secret storage facility in windswept South Dakota, which houses every strange artifact, mysterious relic, fantastical object and preternatural souvenir ever collected by the U.S. government. The Warehouse’s caretaker Artie Nielsen (Saul Rubinek) charges Pete Lattimer (Eddie McClintock), Myka Bering (Joanne Kelly), Claudia Donovan (Allison Scagliotti) and Steve Jinks (Aaron Ashmore) with chasing down reports of supernatural and paranormal activity in search of new objects to cache at the Warehouse, as well as helping him control the Warehouse itself.
Warehouse 13 is produced for Syfy by Universal Cable Productions. Jack Kenny (The Book of Daniel) is executive producer and showrunner.
