The dramedy's new season welcomes an all-new regular cast member, James Callis (Battlestar Galactica) as "Dr. Grant." Syfy has ordered 20 episodes of Eureka, which will once again be shot entirely on location in and around Vancouver, Canada, and is slated to premiere on Friday, July 9th of this year.

Throughout the four-season run of Syfy's award-winning Battlestar Galactica, James Callis starred as "Dr. Gaius Baltar" garnering both critical acclaim and fan adoration for his portrayal of the self-serving, opportunistic, conniving genius. On Eureka, Callis will play scientist "Dr. Grant," a former resident of the town whose unexpected return is cause for serious alarm and - considering his romantic interest in Allison Blake (Salli Richardson-Whitfield) - significant friction with Sherriff Jack Carter (Colin Ferguson). New and returning fans won't want to miss the big changes in store for everyone in the small town of Eureka after a cataclysmic shift turns their lives upside down.

Once again this season series stars Colin Ferguson and Joe Morton ("Henry Deacon") will direct episodes and also making her directorial debut is female lead Salli Richardson-Whitfield. Also, special guest stars returning this season include Jaime Ray Newman ("Dr. Tess Fontana") and Matt Frewer ("Taggart").

Eureka seems like any other cozy, Pacific Northwest town, but is actually a secret community of geniuses assembled by the government to conduct top-secret research. What they've unwittingly created is a place where anything imaginable can happen´┐Ż and does. In addition to Ferguson, Richardson-Whitfield, Morton, and now Callis, the series also stars, Erica Cerra ("Jo Lupo"), Neil Grayston ("Douglas Fargo"), Niall Matter ("Zane Donovan") and features Jordon Hinson ("Zoe Carter"). Co-creator Jaime Paglia and Bruce Miller are Executive Producers. The series is produced and distributed by Universal Cable Productions.

Eureka's third season was its highest-rated and most-watched season. With full DVR playback data factored in, Eureka settled comfortably into its new night, Fridays at 9PM, last summer averaging an impressive 3.2 million total viewers per week. It was also the show's best season ever in adults 18-49 (averaging 1.4 million per week) and adults 25-54 (1.6 million per week).
