Season three of Wynonna Earp kicked off last Monday night at 11:00 PM and it drew a 0.09 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 371,000 viewers. Compared to the second season’s opener, that was even in the demo and down by about 20% in viewership. The cable channel reran the third season premiere this past Friday night and will continue to air the rest of the season in the Fridays in the 9:00 PM timeslot, leading into the fourth season of Killjoys.
Here’s the fourth season renewal announcement:
“WYNONNA EARP” RENEWED FOR SEASON 4
Some great news for all you Earpers out there. Wynonna Earp will be back for a fourth season.
The news dropped Saturday at the SYFY show’s panel at San Diego Comic-Con, which was met with roaring applause from attendees. This has become something of a tradition for the horror/western, which has revealed its season renewals at Comic-Con panels the last few years.
“It’s such a testament to our fans that we’ve just premiered barely and we have a Season 4,” Melanie Scrofano, who plays the show’s titular heroine, told the crowd.
The show, which focuses on Wyatt Earp’s great-great-granddaughter contending with the Earp family curse, has had an active fanbase that’s helped drive up word-of-mouth viewership.
Among the things we can expect in season three this year, Dominique Provost-Chalkley, who plays Wynonna’s sister, Waverly, addressed that big secret being kept from her.
“Waverly’s year is broken in that moment, said Provost-Chalkley. “Her relationship with her mother was particularly special since she didn’t have one with her father, but one of Waverly’s best traits is the ability to forgive. And she’ll do everything in her power to make sure she understands why Wynnona would keep that from her.”
What was on everyone’s mind, of course, was how worried do our heroes have to be about Cootie Bulshar. Varun Saranga, who plays Jeremy, said that “the stakes this season are higher than ever.”
“Who knows the maze better than the maze maker?” Scrofano added.
Wynonna Earp will return for 10 new episodes sometime in 2019.
