About the Show
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... and does. New and returning fans won't want to miss the big changes in store for everyone in Eureka after a cataclysmic shift turns their lives upside down.
Joining the cast of "Eureka" this season is James Callis who portrays scientist "Dr. Grant," a former resident of the town whose unexpected return is cause for serious alarm for all and significant friction for Sherriff Jack Carter (Colin Ferguson), considering Grant's romantic interest in Allison Blake (Salli Richardson-Whitfield). For four seasons Callis starred as "Dr. Gaius Baltar" on Syfy's award-winning original series "Battlestar Galactica," garnering both critical acclaim and fan adoration for his portrayal of the self-serving, opportunistic genius.
Eureka stars Colin Ferguson ("Sheriff Jack Carter") Salli Richardson-Whitfield ("Allison Blake"), Joe Morton ("Henry Deacon"), Erica Cerra ("Jo Lupo"), Neil Grayston ("Douglas Fargo"), Niall Matter ("Zane Donovan"), James Callis ("Dr. Grant"), and features Jordan Hinson ("Zoe Carter").
