I know a lot of Earpers that are going to sleep well tonight. Wynonna Earp will definitely return to SYFY for a fourth season, which should air in the summer of 2020.
The fate of Wynonna Earp has been up in the air for a while, with SYFY requesting two more seasons of the show, but IDW Entertainment, the producer of the show, had too many financial problems to be able to fulfill the series order.
Cineflix Studios has joined the production team for Wynonna Earp, and will be providing the much-needed capital to ensure that fourth season. Cineflix Rights will handle international sales for every season of the show, and IDW and SEVEN24 Films will remain on hand to produce as well.
The first two seasons of Wynonna Earp are available now on Netflix, and you can catch repeats from time to time on SYFY. The series is based on the IDW Publishing comic book by Beau Smith.
Here’s the official announcement from SYFY:
“Syfy has never wavered in its support of ‘Wynonna Earp,’ a unique and important series with some of the most passionate fans anywhere. To our Earper friends: Thank you for your patience and faith as we worked with our partners to ensure that Wynonna can get back to where it belongs… on Syfy.”
That’s really good news for the show’s fans, who have been holding out hope for months that the series would pick up a renewal sooner or later. The pickup order comes at the end of a long month of cancellations for the network, which had axed Happy! and Deadly Class during the month of June.
Wynonna Earp stars Melanie Scrofano as the title character, who has returned to her hometown of Purgatory after a long absence. Wynonna is the great-great-granddaughter of Wyatt Earp, and has been tasked with destroying the reanimated spirits of the people Wyatt killed, called Revenants. Wynonna dispatches these spirits with her ancestor’s 16-inch “Peacemaker” revolver.
It’s a pretty cool show, and I’m happy all the fans have something to celebrate!
