The countdown to to the return of Syfy’s Eureka for season five is almost done. The show returns soon will all-new episodes and to help generate more interest in that return, Syfy has sent us a new preview for this season.
Of course, we’re going to share it with you. In case you’re not familiar with the show and are wondering what all the fuss is about, here’s some info from our friends at Syfy: “Eureka seems like any other cozy, Pacific Northwest town, but is actually a secret community of geniuses assembled by the government to conduct top-secret research. What they’ve unwittingly created is a place where anything imaginable can happen… and does.”
Eureka also features a diverse and talented cast including Colin Ferguson, Salli Richardson-Whitfield, Joe Morton, Erica Cerra, Neil Grayston, Niall Matter and James Callis. In addition, it will feature several guest stars for the new season including Wil Wheaton, Felicia Day and Stan Lee.
