warehouse 13 season 4 Warehouse 13 Renewed For Season 4; Saul Rubinek Explains Why

While Syfy viewers are still getting over the news that Eureka was canceled, fans can rest easy in knowing that their Monday night viewing schedule will stay somewhat intact – as Warehouse 13 was just renewed for a fourth season.

Returning in 2012 with a 13 episode order for season 4, the announcement of Warehouse 13’s renewal was all but expected – though after the surprising cancellation of Eureka, anything could happen.

Since the third season of Warehouse 13 premiered this summer, ratings have been up on the popular series 15% in the coveted demographic of adults 18-49, with an average of 3.2 million viewers (including the +7 DVR ratings data) per episode.

While all popular data collectors love to point to the 18-49 demographic, Warehouse 13 star Saul Rubinek told us recently why he believes the series is so successful:

There are very few hour-long shows that a family can watch together. We’re on at the right time; violence is kept to a minimum. If something works for a 7-year old, something else will work on a whit level [for everyone else].

The other thing that our show has done is that it’s attracted women in ways that other Syfy shows have not. You know how? By making the show wittier – by raising the bar. Smart women are sexy – and our show is filled with smart women.

Here’s what Syfy president of original content Mark Stern had to say about Warehouse 13’s renewal:

“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.”

While fans of Warehouse 13 will certainly be excited to hear about its renewal, many may still be wondering whatever happened to the H.G. Wells spin-off series that everyone was talking about. Well, no need to be worried, as we’ve been told by Warehouse 13 executive producer Jack Kenny that the spin-off is still in development.

Keep an eye on Screen Rant, as we’ll be providing more of an update about what’s going on with the yet untitled Warehouse 13 spin-off.

  1. i’m a fan of the syfy but please things are getting out of hand,
    not only are we subjected to an updated version of fri the 13th t.v series
    in (warehouse 13) but now gonna be another 20 episodes in season 4
    Glad Eureka has been cancelled hopefully the last season which will be aired soon will end in a proper manner…
    is there much more 2 explore ? i do hope so sick of watching series which dont finish i.e 4400 , flash forward , reaper etc the list is endless.
    sorry all just needed to have a whinge…..

  2. My biggest complaint with Syfy is that instead of showing some of the classic sci-fi shows and movies, like they did when they first started up, they are only showing their own made-for-tv movies. All of their “original” movies seem to be based on the same few plots, are filmed very cheaply, and would not even be considered B movies.

    • Yes, the SyFy Channel has changed a lot since its early days, with the addition of BAD, tacky ” reality ” shows, made for SyFy movies ( What about airing some CLASSIC science – fiction & fantasy instead of cheap stuff like ” Ice Spiders “, ” Rock Monster “, ” Nuclear Tornado ” ), or re – runs of tv series like ” War of the Worlds “, or even ” Lost in Space “.
      WH 13 is one of the diminishingly few reasons that I still watch SyFy after Ronald D. Moore’s re – boot of BSG left the air, then Caprica was cancelled, and before then, Stargate SG1 & Atlantis bid their farewells.

      • I agree with you completely… I was so angry that they cancelled SG1 and Atlantis and replaced with SG Universe which is crap and so wrong. I can totally tell the writer is different. They did great on Sanctuary, I do love that and I do love W13 because it is clean, no sex scenes and no cursing and tons of pure science and fantasy almost like Stargate and Atlantis series. I love that it is also have some funny scenes and characters in it. I wish they would bring Stargate back.

        Producers out there…. sex scenes doesn’t make the show better or won’t entice more people to watch the show for too long. People would prefer quality and to be challenge mentally, that’s what keeps our attention and make us want to continue to watch the show.

        • SG – 1 & SG : Atlantis had pretty much reached their height & decided to go out on a high note. SG Universe was so moody & angsty that it looked like an even bleaker combination of BSG & ST : Voyager. It was just very hard to watch. SG 1 & Atlantis always managed to inject some humor, even into a serious episode ( ” Heroes “, ” Meridian ” ” Full Circle “, Atlantis’ ” The Shrine ” among others )
          Warehouse 13 is one of the best series’ around. I’d even pay THEM at SyFy to show reruns of Babylon 5, which is a classic science fiction series ! I also like the U.S. / Canadian version of the BBC’s ” Being Human ” & was treated to an episode of ” Doctor Who ” with Matt Smith. SyFy used to carry DW, of course, as well as ” The Sarah Jane Smith )Adventures ” There was some kind of contract dispute, so SyFy dropped both.

  3. @dazza, The only similarity between Warehouse 13 and Friday the 13th is two digits from their titles. You obviously have no idea what W13 is about and your missing out because I believe it is the best show since X-Files. I never thought a sci-fi show would ever be able to out do X-Files. But it has!

    • @Ken :
      There may BE some common ground between WH 13 & Friday the 13th, but the differences are greater. The gang at Curious Goods hunted down goods that were supposedly Satanically cursed. The artifacts in Warehouse 13 have no curses, just enhanced psychic properties due to their association with a certain event or person. I’m reminded more of the TNT movie series ” The Librarian ” with Bob Newhart & Noah Wylie more than anything else.

      I also like the talent that the show has in its regular cast AND its guest stars ( Kate Mulgrew, Jeri Ryan & Rene’ Auberjonois ( spelling ? ) among others ).

  4. @Ken, What about Doctor who? I love Warehouse 13 and am happy about 20 episodes but i believe Warehouse 13 is Doctor who’s American cousin because they both do so well in ratings. i only say this because i believe Doctor Who has beat X-Files.

    • @Luke: Actually, I think Warehouse 13 has something in common with Doctor Who’s spinoff Torchwood. Not that they’re duplicates by any stretch of the imagination, but there are definitely some parallels.

  5. We don’t have Syfy in South Africa and have to order a lot of the series over the internet. Normally a showlike Flash Forward , Terre Nova and V will be aired on local satelite tv after it has been cancelled in the US. Can you imagine our disappointment when there’s a new show on and you know it has already been cancelled? I wish the networks would stick to something that works and take overseas viewers also in account.

  6. My husband and I are really looking forward to Warehouse 13 returning. If anyone knows anything….please let us know. By the way my husband is 71 yrs old and I am 63 year old. So, it not just the young public that is totally interested.

  7. i LOVE warehouse 13 and hpe it lasts foreverrrr

  8. I AM SOOO EXCITED ABOUT THE NEW SEASON OF WAREHOUSE 13. I WATCH VERY LITTLE T.V. AND BECAUSE OF MY WORK SCHEDULE,I RECORD THE WAREHOUSE SERIES
    IN ORDER TO VIEW IT. ARTIE HAS THE WATCH AND CLAUDIA HAS THE METRONOME, SO I AM GUESSING THE WAREHOUSE IS NOT LOST. I AM CERTAIN THERE WILL BE COMPLICATIONS WITH ITS ARTIFACTY RESTORATION. I AM A SERIOUS WAREHOUSE NIRD AND LOVING IT!! KAREN OXOX

  9. Thanks for finally bringing out a tv show that I really enjoyed watching , I watched all 3 seasons on Netflix and could not get enough of the series , the cast and crew are great , hg wells and pete are amazing , can’t wait till season 4

  10. @Patrick Ditto. I LOVE PETE, no really! <3

  11. I am in the over 50 (but under 60) crowd- I like the show because it is somewhat “odd”- I really did NOT like the hunger games, premise and ending was stupid- but warehouse 13 has an interesting premise and no, not because the young women are “sexy”- in fact, more men would work too if done right-I like the premise, it is quirky. Tonight’s show (9/24/12) was kind of stupid though, I was wondering if maybe this is beginning of the end of the show?

  12. I dont get how wh 13 going to start in season 4 becouse season 3 the wh was distroyed but im glade there kore of it

  13. More

  14. I love Warehouse 13 and am glad it will be back, but i am saddened to see Eureka go, I did not watch it in the early seasons, but have sense caught up with Netflix, and the show is amazing….it just needed to marketed better. I usually do not watch much TV, because as soon as you discover a great show someone who does not know good TV if it bit them in the rear end cancels it :(

  15. Love warehouse 13 , so,so glad it is continuing!!

  16. My 14 year old son, a big syfy buff, ( me not so much) got me hooked on Warehouse 13 and now he & I have several shows on the Syfy Channel we have scheduled days of the week together to watch! I really looked forward to our time together doing this and was disappointed waiting & waiting for the new season of Warehouse 13. I hope to see new seasons to come. Thanks !!

  17. what the hell how come im not watching it now
