Warehouse 13 is an American science fiction television series that began airing on the Sci-Fi Channel in July of 2009. The show ran for five seasons, spanning a total of sixty-four episodes and concluding its run on May 19th, 2014.
Warehouse 13 was created by Jane Espenson and D. Brent Mote and produced by Universal Media Studios. The series stars Eddie McClintock and Joanne Kelly as two Secret Service agents named Pete Lattimer and Myka Bering. They are recruited to serve as members of a mysterious, top-secret organization charged with finding and securing valuable and dangerous artifacts from around the country and bringing them to Warehouse 13. They answer to a man named Artie Nielsen (played by Saul Rubinek), the affable, yet scatter-brained caretaker of the Warehouse, and the one responsible for sending them out on their missions. Supporting characters include Leena, a young woman who runs a nearby bed & breakfast where Pete and Myka reside; Claudia Donovan - a computer whiz kid responsible for cataloging artifacts in the warehouse, and the enigmatic Mrs. Irene Frederic - an authoritative figure who comes and goes as she pleases. As Pete and Myka learn more about the bizarre artifacts that Artie sends them in search of, they discover that each of them possesses the potential to unleash great power. Most of their missions involve procuring an artifact before it falls into the wrong hands. Though most episodes of the series are self-sustaining, some recurring minor characters and adversaries are introduced. Season one introduced James MacPherson - a former Warehouse agent gone rogue. Season two presents an even more viable threat in the form of a time-traveling woman who just happens to be H.G. Wells.
