Yes, its true, Eureka is back a little earlier in the year than normal for its fifth and last season. Sadly the trend towards wrestling ghost shows at the Syfy channel continues.
As for the first episode of season 5, its entitled Lost and information is so far hard to find, which doesn’t bode well for the ratings (And Syfy channel wonders why).
However, courtesy of SciFiStorm.org I have managed to get a small synopsis.
As Eureka’s thrilling fifth and last season kicks off, the town is reeling after the Astraeus and her crew mysteriously vanished just before their planned launch to Titan. When they finally crash-land, Allison and the crew members are shocked to find themselves back in Eureka – and that they’ve been missing for four years. As the town copes with the shocking personal changes that have happened during their long absence, Sheriff Carter and Henry try to uncover the truth about the forces behind the crew’s bizarre disappearance – with deadly results.
Strangely the synopsis doesn’t square with season 4’s finale when Dr Blake managed to launch herself to Titan by accident, I guess we will learn more about all that on monday.
Here is a small preview clip of season 5.
