'Warehouse 13' stays open for a fourth season

warehouse-13-renewal.jpg "Warehouse 13" is the most-watched original series Syfy has ever had, so it's no surprise that the cable channel would want to keep it around. And it is: Syfy on Friday (Aug. 12) picked up the series for a fourth season.

"Under executive producer Jack Kenny's leadership, this superlative team of writers, cast, and crew continue to turn out a series that only gets better and better with every episode," says Mark Stern, head of original content for Syfy. "'Warehouse 13' is deservedly the most popular series in our history and we're delighted to renew it for a fourth season."

Through its first five episodes this season, the show is averaging about 3.2 million total viewers (including DVR playback), 1.5 million of whom fall in the adults 18-49 demographic. The show has improved across the board on its numbers from Season 2.

Syfy says the show will return in 2012. A more specific date hasn't been set, but we expect another summer run next year.
