TORONTO (Jan. 23, 2018) – Returning to the land of gunpowder and grudges, Space announces production on Season 3 of its original, CSA-nominated for Best Writing in a Drama series WYNONNA EARP, is underway. The 12-episode, one-hour, western sci-fi series created by Emily Andras films in Calgary and surrounding area until May 2018. Canadian actor Melanie Scrofano returns as the titular demon hunter and heroine Wynonna Earp. The writing team spearheaded by Andras includes Brendon Yorke, Shelley Scarrow, Noelle Carbone, Caitlin Fryers, and Matt Doyle. Directors are Paolo Barzman, April Mullen, Ron Murphy, and Grant Harvey. Produced by Calgary-based SEVEN24 Films, and distributed globally by IDW Entertainment, Season 3 of WYNONNA EARP is set to return to Space later this year.
“We’re excited to kick off production on the third installment of this inventive sci-fi series that continues to turn the western genre on its head,” said Corrie Coe, Senior Vice-President, Original Programming, Bell Media. “Time and again, Emily Andras and her characters, brilliant storylines, and plot twists take our viewers on a ride that has them tuning in for more every week, and we can’t wait to see where this season takes us.”
“Over the first two seasons, this series has connected with one of the most passionate audiences in the industry in a very special way,” said Jordy Randall, Executive Producer, SEVEN24 Films. “After the surprising events of last season, we can’t wait to deliver these new episodes to our growing fan base.”
Following an emotional and surprising Season 2 finale that saw Wynonna (Scrofano), give birth to the next Earp heir, she’s now hell-bent on dispatching all remaining Revenants and other supernatural beings to end the cycle of violence between future heirs and Wyatt Earp’s demonic outlaws. Armed with Wyatt’s demon-killing six-shooter, Peacemaker, and her battle-seasoned team of demon hunters Doc Holliday (Tim Rozon, BEING HUMAN), Agent Xavier Dolls (Shamier Anderson, Race), Waverly Earp (Dominique Provost-Chalkley, Avengers: Age of Ultron), Nicole Haught (Katherine Barrell, WORKIN’ MOMS), and Jeremy Chetri (Varun Saranga, WORKIN’ MOMS), Wynonna challenges fate, faces new foes, and makes life-altering sacrifices in order to break the curse once and for all.
