Whenever there’s a chance to chat with any of the cast of Warehouse 13 (Syfy, Mondays, 10/9C), I jump at the chance because these guys love to talk about their show. I mean, really love to talk about their show! Where most Q&A’s run for half-an-hour, the folks at W13 will go for as long as they can – and the result often feels more like a conversation with old friends than some obligatory press thing.
Late last week, I had the chance to participate in a call with showrunner Jack Kenny and stars Eddie McClintock (who plays Pete Lattimer) and Joanne Kelly (who plays Myka Bering). The call did not disappoint.
Throughout its thrilling third season, Syfy’s Warehouse 13 has taken viewers on surprising twists and turns, from the return of Myka (Joanne Kelly), the introduction of new Agent Steve Jinks (Aaron Ashmore) and guest stars such as Jeri Ryan, Jaime Murray, Lindsay Wagner and Kate Mulgrew to nefarious villains like Anthony Michael Hall and Sasha Roiz threatening the survival of the Warehouse – and the world. To conclude this powerful year, Syfy will present its first ever, explosive two-hour Warehouse 13 season finale on Monday, October 3 from 9-11PM (ET/PT).
Syfy’s Warehouse 13 had a second season that both entertained like crazy and pulled in strong ratings, so it’s hard to understand why the series didn’t have a third season pick-up by the time the second season ended. Finally, the logical/inevitable decision was made and the snappy series about two Secret Service agents who snag, bag and tag dangerous supernatural artifacts has been granted that well deserved third season.
Executive Producer Jack Kenny has signed a new development deal that will see him continue to head the show’s creative team and work on new projects for Syfy.
Warehouse 13 came out of nowhere last summer to become Syfy’s most successful series ever. Built around the concept of a warehouse for storing artifacts with unusual, even supernatural, abilities – and the Secret Service agents who are assigned to bag, tag and store those items, the show’s mix of buddy show, weird procedural and eccentric character studies was an instant hit.
This week, Warehouse 13’s creator/showrunner Jack Kenny took some time from shooting season two to talk about the show’s conception and what lies in store for the upcoming season. Warehouse 13 returns to Syfy on June 6 [9/8C].
