I hear SyFy is close to a fifth season pickup of drama series Eureka. The options on the actors from the cast, which includes Colin Ferguson, Salli Richardson-Whitfield, Joe Morton and Erica Cerra, are being picked up. The series, about a remote town where the brightest U.S. scientists build futuristic inventions, has been a consistent ratings performer for the network. Its fourth season premiere last month drew 2.5 million viewers, on par with the 2.6 million who tuned in for the Eureka‘s summer debut last year.
