Wynonna Earp has officially been renewed for a third season by SyFy. The sow had a breakout first season and has shown real growth (and major improvements) in its second year. Starring Melanie Scrofano, the series is a unique expansion of the legend of Wyatt Earp. The demon hunting family has been through quite a lot, and with this latest reveal of a baby on the way, it looks like things just got a lot more complicated.
SyFy brought the series to San Diego Comic-Con with its star and Tim Rozon (Doc Holliday), Shamier Anderson (Dolls), Dominique Provost-Chalkley (Waverly), Katherine Barrell (Nicole), Varun Saranga (Jeremy), Tamara Duarte (Rosita), and creator Emily Andras along with comic creator/writer Beau Smith. With the potential half-revenant child, the cast and crew expertly dodged questions about whether or not Wynonna's sister, Waverly, might have a lot more insight into her origins since she's not truly an Earp. The good news for Earpers is that there's going to be at least another season for all the drama to play out.
After being treated to an exclusive trailer for what's left of season 2, fans at the panel were surprised with a season 3 renewal confirmation from IDW Entertainment President, David Ozer. To an excited room, he said:
“Fans have been passionately embracing Wynonna Earp since its debut. SYFY recognized that passion and when coupled with superior writing, acting, directing and production values, saw that Wynonna Earp was more than just a distinctly unique television series. We’re thrilled to continue our partnership with SYFY and look forward to another fun season of incredible entertainment with the cast and crew of Wynonna Earp.”
Series creator and showrunner Emily Andras couldn't have been more thrilled about the announcement adding, “We are so excited have this strong female-led, witty action series return for another season and deliver something special to our passionate fans around the world.” Wynonna Earp has found its stride on SyFy, adding to the network's slate of female-driven sci-fi series like Killjoys and another break out hit, The Expanse.
Andras has always taken pride in the fact that she can relate to her characters even though she doesn't hunt demons for a living. When the face of the series told her she was pregnant in real life, it provided a unique opportunity to create what the showrunner deemed "the first pregnant superhero." Luckily, the powers that be over at SyFy trusted the show's direction enough to renew it for a third season.
