Warehouse 13 is a prime example of how cruel the world is, but also how sweet it can be. When it first premiered in 2009, it pulled in respectable numbers for a Syfy series. Flash forward to the present, when Warehouse 13 is in the middle of airing its fourth season, and its numbers are half of what they used to be. Why am I bringing this up? Well, because Warehouse 13 was canceled and I’m trying to find justification for giving the axe to a series that, for all intents and purposes, was doing great creatively. I keep coming back to the dwindling viewer count. But I did say this was an example of cruelty and sweetness – there’s a silver lining.
Not only is Warehouse 13 finishing off its current season, but it was also renewed for a fifth and final season. Deadline reported Season 5 would definitely be »

An 8-year-old boy turns up, seemingly out of nowhere, in a field in China. An immigration agent learns where the boy lives and brings him home to his parents -- who believe their son died more than 30 years ago.
Yet here he is, looking just the same as he did the last day he was alive.
That's the jumping-off point for ABC's new series "Resurrection." The drama stars Omar Epps ("House") as the immigration agent, Martin Bellamy, and Kurtwood Smith ("That '70s Show") and Frances Fisher ("Eureka," "Titanic") as Harold and Lucille Garland, the parents of the suddenly alive again Jacob (Landon Gimenez). The Garlands won't be the only residents of their Missouri town to have this kind of experience -- other people's loved ones soon start to return as well.
Excellent, some Haven news! Production has begun for Season 4 of this absolutely terrific show, up in gorgeous Halifax. Everyone I’ve talked with who’s involved in the show’s production talks about the big part the location plays in the series, and I agree. We also have news that the star of another Syfy show that featured an “interesting” town will be joining the Haven community:

You can put dinosaurs in just about anything and we'll watch it, which is one reason why we're sharing this first look promo for Syfy's newest Original Series, "Primeval: New World," premiering June 8th.

Syfy may have let Eureka come to an end last year, but they weren’t quite ready to allow series star Colin Ferguson to slip between their fingers. He will be returning to Syfy to be a part of Haven’s fourth season. I imagine they’ll sneak him in for a couple episodes at a time, introduce his character to the viewers, give them time to get used to his presence on Haven, and then slowly make him the new star of the show. That ought to make up for canceling Eureka, right? And if that’s not how things go, then Syfy should at least give him major, if not starring, roles in all of its original programming. The world needs more Colin Ferguson.
The former Eureka star will join Haven’s fourth season in a season-long arc, says Deadline. He will be playing William, a mysterious stranger »

After strong ratings for the first episodes of Haven Season 3, Syfy quickly renewed the series for another 13-episodes. The fourth season began filming yesterday and we have word of a new addition to the cast.
Eureka‘s Colin Ferguson (pictured below) didn’t leave Syfy for long, as it’s being reported that he’s going to be on Haven for a season-long arc. Production is taking place once again in Halifax, Nova Scotia and the series is said to pick up six months after the events of the Season 3 finale.
We’ll have more coverage of Haven Season 4 as we get closer to the first episode air date. Like last season, a fall premiere is expected, but a specific date has yet to be announced.

Syfy has announced that production on season four of Haven has begun -- with Colin Ferguson as an addition to the cast. The cable channel has ordered 13 episodes and they'll start airing next October.
Here's their press release:
Syfy's Hit Series "Haven" Begins Production On Season 4 In Halifax, Nova Scotia
New York, NY - May 8, 2013 - Startling new mysteries and secrets are in the works as Syfy's hit series Haven goes into production today, May 8, on an all-new 13 episode Season 4 in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
Season 4 of Haven picks up six months after the devastating »
When "Haven" returns to Syfy with new Season 4 episodes in October 2013, there will be at least one new actor making trouble: Colin Ferguson, the former star of "Eureka," has been cast on this show about a strange small town in Maine.
Ferguson, who played Sheriff Jack Carter over five seasons of "Eureka" before the series was canceled in 2012, will play a character named William on "Haven." Six months after the events that ended Season 3, this mysterious stranger will show up in the town of Haven. Whatever William's secret agenda may be, it leads him straight to Audrey Parker (Emily Rose).
Considering that we last saw Audrey disappearing into a magic barn (along with Duke (Eric Balfour) and a few others), the casting does at least indicate that the show's mystery woman will soon be returning. This is good news for Nathan (Lucas Bryant), left behind and injured when the others disappeared. »
Colin Ferguson is headed to Haven.
The former Eureka mainstay will appear on the Syfy favorite as William, described by network sources to Deadline as a "mysterious stranger" with a "secret agenda" that somehow takes him into the heart of the titular town.
Haven Season 4 began production this week in Halifax.
It will pick up six months after the events that concludes Haven Season 3, which were highlighted by the town facing a by a violent meteor storm.

Everyone’s favorite hacker-turned-LARPing queen-turned-hunter-in-training is back. Yes, tonight’s episode of Supernatural will again feature Felicia Day as Charlie, now in her third appearance in the series.
The last time Supernatural fans saw Charlie, in January’s “Larp and the Real Girl,” she wasn’t too pleased to see Sam and Dean show up on her Larp stomping grounds, Moondoor. “If you guys are here, monsters are here,” she told them. But she has since warmed to the idea of being in the midst of the supernatural. In tonight’s episode, it’s Charlie who brings a case to the Winchester boys. »

Aaron Douglas is best known as Galen Tyrol, the beloved Chief and possible Cylon sleeper agent on Battlestar Galactica. His other sci-fi television credits include Stargate Sg-1, Smallville, Eureka and the new Netflix original series Hemlock Grove where he plays a small-town sheriff on the trail of some big secrets. A jovial, upbeat man in person, he was happy to sit down with the press for a roundtable interview shortly after wrapping his shoot on Hemlock Grove. Hit the jump to read on. Question: I can't believe you've wrapped. Aaron Douglas: I can't either. I'm unemployed as of right now. You better be paying me for these interviews. So I take it you play a sheriff? Douglas: No I just borrowed the coat. I'm actually a small Korean grocer. [Laughter.] Yes, I play the sheriff. Sheriff Tom Sworn. That's what I do. That's all I'm allowed to say. Thanks very much, »

If you watched the premiere of Defiance on Monday night, and if you posted about that on a social networking site, you were not alone. Not only did one of Syfy‘s biggest and most ambitious undertakings to date bring in record viewership numbers, it won the night in “social exposures,” which sounds like an unfortunate middle school incident but is actually a good thing for the show and for the network.
To celebrate, we have a featurette with showrunner Kevin Murphy and star Grant Bowler talking about the pilot (not Too spoilery, but best watched after you’ve seen the premiere) entitled “Shooting the Shtako” (yes it means what you think it means), and the press release with all of the numbers, for you digit heads out there.

Review Billy Grifter 16 Apr 2013 - 13:00
Billy checks out new Syfy post-alien invasion series Defiance, and likes some of what he sees...
This review contains spoilers. Our spoiler-free review is here.
What's fascinating about sci-fi shows is that they're invariably influenced by others in the genre. Right from the start of Defiance we're bombarded with references to many things, like a buffet where the host couldn't decide if they wanted to serve Chinese or pizza, and so threw it, along with curry and sushi all on the same plate. Defiance gives us Mad Max over Firefly, with a side order of Shakespeare and the general ambience of a thousand cowboy movies rolled into one.
As with any overly ambitious cuisine there are parts that work well, and others you'd push to the edge of the plate. But, it all starts well enough. After watching the whole thing, the strongest »
