Warehouse 13 Renewed for Season 4

By Courtney Rowan

Now for something completely different… SyFy has renewed Warehouse 13 for a fourth season.

Syfy has ordered another 13 episodes in 2012. The renewal isn’t at all surprising considering the ratings have been really strong and increasing each season. Warehouse was  up 15 percent during the third season among adults 18-49 for its first couple episodes this summer, with the first five episodes averaging 3.2 million viewers once you include DVR data.

SyFy’s  president of original content, Mark Stern, stated:

“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.  Warehouse 13 is deservedly the most popular series in our history and we’re delighted to renew it for a fourth season.”

Too bad Mr. Stern didn’t feel as strongly for Eureka, huh?  (Sorry, I couldn’t resist.)

Warehouse has also added Aaron Ashmore this season as new agent Steve Jinks, a welcomed addition to the cast.  They’ve been balancing his involvement nicely, I don’t feel like he’s out of place at all.  What I don’t understand in why Leena is still on the show… Waste of storyline.

In other exciting Warehouse news from Comic Con, Kate Mulgrew will be joining the cast as a regent.  Which is simply put – awesomesauce.  TV Guide has your first look and some details on her storyline.

More information from Comic Con was:

  • Next week’s episode featuring Neil Grayston (Douglas Fargo from Eureka) will take place inside a video game.  Saul will portray a Monty Python version of Artie, while Eddie will be playing a gladiator. It will be titled “Don’t Hate the Player.”
  • Christmas Episode!!  Full of easter eggs too… last year’s was brilliant.
  • Possible interest in an HG Wells spinoff series.  Talks are in ‘very early stages’.  Not sure how this one will work, but after this week’s episode and her Sherlock like character, perhaps Jaime Murray is strong enough for a show of her own.
Here’s a sneak peek at next week’s video game episode with Fargo – “Dont’ Hate The Player”:
