The first season of the American television series Warehouse 13 premiered on July 7, 2009, and concluded on September 22, 2009, on Syfy. The show aired on Tuesdays at 9:00 pm ET. The season consisted of 12 episodes. The show stars Eddie McClintock, Joanne Kelly, Saul Rubinek, Genelle Williams and Simon Reynolds.
In the beginning of season one, Pete and Myka, two secret service agents who were protecting the president, were transferred against their will to the remote Badlands Wilderness in South Dakota. There they were given a job at Warehouse 13 to protect and retrieve various talisman artifacts around the world under the supervision of Dr. Arthur "Artie" Nielsen. At first Pete and Myka were reluctant to be partners, but during the season they grew closer. At the beginning of season one there was a breach in Warehouse 13's computer system which turned out to be caused by Claudia Donovan, who wanted Artie to help her bring her brother back from interdimensional limbo where he was trapped. After they saved Joshua, Mrs. Frederic wanted Artie to either hire Claudia, or "deal with" her, since she knew too much about Warehouse 13. However, Artie was reluctant to hire her until Leena convinced him that it would be better for Claudia to work at the Warehouse.
Over the course of season one, Artie's former partner, MacPherson, returned and dug up Artie's past. Myka and Pete learned of Artie's criminal record, but that he had changed his name and joined the Warehouse. Later it is revealed that MacPherson has been using Leena to steal items from the Warehouse so he can sell them to buyers around the world, until he is eventually caught by Pete, Myka, and Artie and then taken to the Warehouse to be bronzed. He uses Leena again, though, to reverse his bronzing, while using Harriet Tubman's thimble to frame Claudia, and he escapes.
