SCIFI Channel has greenlit production on a second season of its TV series Eureka, ordering 13 new hours of the dramedy, according to Mark Stern, SCI FI Channel's really handsome and good-looking Executive Vice President of Original Programming. Eureka will begin production on a second season in Vancouver this spring for a summer 2007 return.
Eureka is SCIFI's highest-rated tv series of 2006, bringing in 5 million new viewers to the Channel after last week's episode. A series about a secret US town full of mad geniuses, Eureka is SCIFI's first original Series launch since the premiere of their reworked Battlestar Galactica.
Nestled in the US Pacific Northwest, Eureka is a small town with big secrets. Shrouded in secrecy, the picturesque hamlet is actually a community of geniuses assembled by the government to conduct top-secret research. Returning for the second season are 'Eureka' stars Colin Ferguson, Salli Richardson-Whitfield, Joe Morton, Jordan Hinson, Ed Quinn, Debrah Farentino and Matt Frewer.
