It is no mystery to fans that Syfy‘s Haven TV show is cancelled at the end of season five. We reported on the cancellation decision, back in August. What is a mystery is how the series will wrap up, and how much closure it will provide to the loyal Haven audience.
In an interview with TV Insider, showrunners Gabrielle Stanton and Matt McGuinness seem to be promising satisfaction for fans of Nathan (Lucas Bryant), Audrey (Emily Rose), and the rest of the team.
From TV Insider:
McGuinness: We always knew we were writing to the end of the series, and we wanted to give everyone very heroic or satisfying endings. […]
Stanton: […] In the upcoming episodes, we’re going to see Vince make a decision and sacrifice of his own that kind of sets him off on a different journey.
[TV Insider:] Now that the team is reunited, what is their dynamic again?
McGuinness: In the beginning it’s a little fraught because of what everyone’s done. There’s a lot of water under bridges and over dams to fix [things] between all these people. But they ultimately get to a place of great respect and affection and teamwork. But it’s not easy to get there.
Stanton: But by the end, their ties [to each other] are stronger than ever. They’ve come together and put the past behind them and they just move forward to save Haven.
[TV Insider:] What can you tell me about these last few episodes?
Stanton: The last five episodes are just a giant run to the end… We realized that this is not about finding new viewers at this point. It’s about paying off all of our super loyal viewers, everything that they could have possibly wanted to know about what’s happening on Haven.
What do you think? What do you want from the Haven TV series finale? Do you think the show should have been renewed for a sixth season, or is it season five the right time to end it? Sound off in the comments.
I have been a loyal fan since day one and am glad to see them getting the send-off they deserve. Still…I kind of agree with some of the commentators that the show is becoming a little too far out there from the original premise. I think season 3, written just a little differently, could have been a perfect end the show. It solved the overarching mystery of the Colorado Kid, answered Audrey’s origins and had a memorable villain. I still tune in every week, but know this could have been better. Farewell, Haven…the strangest little town in Maine.
will be sad to see this great show come to and end been watching since day 1 loved the show and the characters wish it was going to be carried on but sadly it doesnt look like that will happen
Whatever they decide will be fine with me. Good decisions have been made so far – I’m sure the ending will be great.
That’s good to hear, Linda. Thank you for reading.
I’ve been watching Haven since day one I love the show it’s been great for all these years it’s just sad to see this is not going to be another season but it would be great to see if another station picked it up like A & E or the ion channel because Haven is a great show in my opinion and when I have talk to other people they think it’s a great show also so it’d be great to see another station pick it up and just continue running it was it.
When a show I’ve loved is ending, Martin, I try to think of it like a great book. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
I have been watching this show over it’s entire run, and they really have “Jumped the Shark” in the past year and a pleasant like show has gotten so convoluted that it is difficult to follow. I have seem this happen to a lot of other episodic series’s and this seems to be following that same path. It was a little supernatural in the beginning, but lately it has gone from the sublime to the ridiculous. I like the cast, and give them the benefit of the doubt since they don’t write the show, but for me it has become… Read more »
I watched the first season or two, Ronald, but then scheduling shenanigans threw me off, and I missed the rest of it. When Colin Ferguson joined the cast, I was going to give it a second look, but I felt like I was too far behind.
When I wrote this article, I couldn’t believe how very supernatural the series had become. I mean, it always had that element, but what I read felt way different from the “I like pancakes; don’t touch me,” series I first started watching.
Thanks for reading, and thanks for your reply.
Thanks for calling me stupid. God Bless you and have a good day.
I also wish Haven would remain but I also have to give SyFy credit for doing the right thing with Haven and for Haven fans. I’ve complained frequently about shows that were cancelled on a cliffhanger or leaving many questions unanswered. It’s one of those behaviors that sends the message to viewers that networks have no respect for their viewers. While SyFy has not always been this generous (recent notable casualties – Dominion and Defiance were cancelled mid-story) SyFy did make the effort with Warehouse 13 and more recently Continuum. Not watching the final episodes would be like telling SyFy… Read more »
Totally agree with you. We need to see it to the end to prove we are loyal fans and show we appreciate what they’ve done. Leaving now would just make them say “why bother” when the next show gets cancelled. Besides I need closure.
You make terrific points, Bill O. Thanks so much for reading, and thanks for your considered comment.
I think it sucks that Haven has been cancelled at all, and I will not be watching any of the final episodes. I’m boycotting Syfy, not that my one little watcher status will hurt them any, but it’s the principle
that’s just stupid. stop having a hissy fit. at least they will give us an ending.
Cindy Beam, I take it that your’e the commenter who later comments as simply “Cindy” (I only mention this, because I saw your other comment and thought, “I didn’t post that,” in other words, this is just a little name disambiguation). Anyhowl, I’m sorry your show has been cancelled. Been there. Done that. Now, I write for the website. 😉 Speaking only in my capacity as a fan, I have never been able to boycott the final episodes of an already cancelled show. I need my closure. Again, my condolences on losing your show. Thank you for reading and for… Read more »
