Colin Cunningham discusses the future of his character, John Pope:

There is an arc but I think it's going to be a little one. Maybe Pope is going rediscover a little of his own humanity through this journey. Right now I see him very much as a pessimist. He doesn't see anywhere out of this thing. He sees this that this is a completely lost cause and that one of the things motivates him. He doesn't want to sit around and wait to get annihilated; instead he'll take the fight to them. I don't think John Pope has any expectations to live any longer than the day and that motivates him. He doesn't expect to survive so he might as well live life on his own terms. At the end of the series or as it continues on, for many more seasons to come, there will be a gradual coming out of his shell I suppose and hopefully he'll see a little bit of hope.

And what can we expect out of the Tom Mason-John Pope relationship moving forward?
Tom Mason and John Pope continues throughout the series, but more in-depth. Tom doesn't really trust this guy, nor should he. John is an opportunist and the writers never forget that. It's not in his bones and blood to be a super good guy. That kind of thing isn't going to happen. But he does know how to kill these things; he does know where to find things that the 2nd Mass needs. He is of use, but nobody does ever let their guard down around the guy and that's a smart move.

Syfy has announced that they've renewed the show for a sixth season - in case you lost track, season 4.5 is the one currently airing, and they're just finishing up shooting next year's 13-episode season five. The odd thing is that the renewal is only for six episodes, which makes it seem likely that those final episodes will wrap up the show. However, here's what Syfy president of programming Mark Stern had to say:

[Producers] Bruce Miller and Jaime Paglia have brought a creative vitality to Eureka that has kept it fresh and inventive. Although we do not have a commitment beyond six episodes for the sixth season, we are hopeful that this will not be the end of the franchise.


As EW points out, the use of the word "franchise" instead of "series" or "show" might mean that they're considering some sort of spin-off or continuation...or maybe they'll just move Fargo permanently over to Warehouse 13 à la Worf in DS9 or something. As for that short sixth season, I think we should look at the last time that a light-hearted ensemble science fiction show got a radically reduced episode order after a thirteen-episode season. Yes, that's right: we're clearly headed for Eureka: Children of Earth, the nature of which I can't even begin to contemplate. [EW]


Here's a brief description of episode five, "Roots":

A wedding at an isolated estate becomes a lethal trap for everyone in attendance - including Audrey, Chris, Duke and Evi.

Secret Circle

Executive producer Kevin Williamson explains why there probably won't be crossovers with his other supernatural CW show, The Vampire Diaries:

"I don't know if you'll see that crossover episode. I didn't want this show to look like The Vampire Diaries. You want this show to look like its own show. You want it to be its own world. We would be tied to the werewolf and vampire lore and witchdom. That limits us. We need to start from ground zero and create our own story... so that we can tell just as good a story as Vampire Diaries...Our version of witchcraft is very dark. It's certainly not that hard-edge, ripping hearts out and slicing people open the way we do in Vampire, but there's other ways to skin a cat."
