Syfy has given a second season renewal to its hit freshman drama Warehouse 13. Thirteen episodes have been ordered for the second season, but Syfy president David Howe told Variety that it could add additional episodes down the line. Here’s the blurb from the trade:
Unlike other Syfy series, “Warehouse 13″ has a near 50% female viewership and is performing better in its first season than the first season of “Battlestar Galactica,” which ended its four-season run in March.
Thirteen episodes have been ordered for season two and, as with “Battlestar,” that number could go up in subsequent seasons.
“We took a look at doing 20 episodes, but for logistic and financial reasons, it didn’t make sense to do that right now, but I wouldn’t rule it out,” Syfy president Dave Howe told Daily Variety.
Warehouse 13 has remained impressively consistent in the ratings, with the latest episode drawing 3.27 million viewers (it’s averaging 3.7 million viewers a week and 1.4 million viewers within the A18-49 demographic according to Live + 7 Day numbers).
Warehouse 13 airs Tuesday’s at 9:00 p.m.
