Syfy Renews Toronto-Lensed "Warehouse 13"

Buoyed by strong ratings, Syfy reports a 13-episode, third season pickup for the Toronto-lensed, genre 'dramedy' "Warehouse 13", returning in 2011, with showrunner Jack Kenny signing a new development deal that will also return him for a third season as Executive Producer.

During its second season, viewership of "Warehouse 13" averaged 1.48 million Adults 18-49 and 1.78 million Adults 25-54.

"Jack Kenny’s superlative leadership and the incredible talent of his cast and crew delivered an outstanding second season of 'Warehouse 13'," said Mark Stern, Executive Vice President, Programming, Syfy, and Co-Head, Original Content, Universal Cable Productions.

Airing Tuesday nights, "Warehouse 13" follows two government 'Secret Service' agents who find themselves transferred to a top-secret storage facility in South Dakota, housing every strange artifact, mysterious relic, and fantastical object ever collected by the US government.

The Warehouse’s caretaker 'Artie Nielsen' (Saul Rubinek) charges Agents 'Pete Lattimer' (Eddie McClintock) and 'Myka Bering' (Joanne Kelly) with chasing down reports of supernatural and paranormal activity in search of new objects to cache at the facility. Also starring is Allison Scagliotti as 'Claudia', Artie’s apprentice.
