With only thirteen episodes left in its run, Eureka is planning to pull out all the stops in its final season.
“When you’re not coming back [for another season] you can hit things a little harder,” series star Colin Ferguson told critics at a recent press conference. He added that the finale is “amazing” and full of some surprises for fans.
But one of the season’s biggest shocks won’t have to wait until the finale.
Co-star Neil Grayston says one of the biggest shocks will happen in Monday’s episode.
”One of the most shocking things that happen this season happens in the next episode,” Grayston said. “A lot of people are going to be mad.”
Producer Jamie Paglia added that he wrote the series finale in record time.
“We wrote it in record time,” added Paglia of the series finale. “We broke the story in two days and wrote it in three. And the thing I’m most proud of about this entire experience … was we were able to pull that off without it being horrendous and stressful.’”
And what can we expect in the final run of episodes? Ferguson offers a hint. “As many times as he’s saved [the town of] Eureka, the truth of the series is Eureka ends up saving him,” he says.
