EUREKA Season 5.0 Debut on SyFy Tonight! (April 16, 2012)

Welcome to SyFy's EUREKA Season 5.0 2012!


The fifth and final season of SyFy’s EUREKA airs tonight, Monday April 16, 2012, at 9 PM/8C on SyFy! I was a writer/producer for Season 4.0, 4.5 and 5.0 of this wonderful show. It was an honor and privilege to work with the awesome cast, crew, producers, and of course, the writers of EUREKA.

EUREKA is about a secret small town of genius scientists who work on classified projects for the government. We don’t have flying cars but boy do a lot of things go, um, awry with the experiments, and it’s up to our hero, Sheriff Jack Carter, to save the day. Carter may be the only one in town without a genius IQ, but his Everyman common sense always wins the day because unlike the geniuses, Carter can see the forest for the trees. It’s a very funny show with a lot of heart. We have appreciated our fan support from Day 1, and it’s been such a fun job. I really miss our EUREKA gang.

As a special treat for our Eureka fans, below is a list of links of blogs I have written over my past two years on the show, featuring fun on-the-set photos from my trips to Vancouver with the cast and crew of EUREKA, as well as blogs about the adventures we’ve had in the writers’ room. I hope you enjoy this trip down memory lane.

And here’s a recent interview with EUREKA co-creator and executive producer Jaime Paglia, who says our final season is a “love letter” to our fans. Awww.

But this is not the end of Eureka. Please watch our Season 5.0 this spring and summer. I will continue to post occasional behind-the-scenes Eureka blogs for our fans, especially when an episode I wrote with fellow Eureka writer Ed Fowler airs later this year! You won’t want to miss that! 🙂

Again, many hugs and grateful thanks for all our EUREKA fans. We couldn’t have done it without you!

Until the next blog, remember… Happy Writing! WRITE LIKE YOU MEAN IT! 🙂

  1. I’m looking forward to this season. The previews have been fun. Cute pic in front of the cafe. Did they make you any of the outlandishly-named treats? What? They’re not real? I’m so disappointed. 😉

      LOL Fitz! It’s amazing how “real” the Cafe Diem set is. But no Vinspresso when I tried to turn on the machine. 🙂

    Wow, the season opener rocked! SO many twists – can’t wait to see what’s next for the intrepid Eurekans!

    • paulayoo says:

      Hi! Thank you so much! We were hoping fans would like all the twists. Sorry for all the whiplash tho from the twists, but this roller coaster ride will be worth it! 🙂

    I’ll miss the show. Quirky and fun. A lot like me! 😉 I guess SyFy just needs the additional air time to show more idiotic programming, like Ghost Hunting Dolts and brilliant original movies like “Mosquito Man Dog Eats New Jersey.”

    • paulayoo says:

      LOL! Wasn’t “Mosquito Man Dog Eats New Jersey” a SyFy film? 🙂 Thanks for your kind comment, I hope you enjoy the rest of our season. 🙂

    Thanks for the BEST show ever. The casting and chemistry of the actors is perfect.
    I still can’t believe this amazing show was cancelled by syfy.

    I also LOVE how unimportant race is in the show. Because it should be that way in life. People working together, doing brilliant things, making the world a better place and loving each other.

    Thank you to the creators, the amazing actors the casting team, the writers and the producers. You had more fans than you knew.
