When Warehouse 13 (Syfy, Mondays, 9/8C) returns tonight, it marks the beginning of the end for what has been Syfy’s highest-rated show for much of the last four seasons. When the show concluded last season, Artie, Myka, Pete and Steve had been expelled from the Warehouse and Claudia was left to try to stop Paracelsus. In the final season premiere, Endless Terror, things get even more bizarre than usual.

Syfy is entering the Zombie Apocalyspe Sweepstakes with what sounds like a unique take on the horror subgenre: someone has survived the zombie plague – but although he carries the antibodies that may be humanity’s only hope, he harbors a secret that might destroy them all.
Karl Schaffer (Eerie Indiana, Eureka, The Dead Zone) will serve as executive producer/showrunner. The series is from production company The Asylum (Sharknado).
Syfy, in association with Reunion Pictures and Great Point Media, has announced the commissioning of 13-episode, one-hour drama series called Olympus. Based on the Greek myths, it will tell the story of ‘a few brave men and women banished the Gods to the realm of the unconscious – a place they called the Underworld or the Kingdom of Hades.’
Olympus is being set to premiere in 2015.
