Will There Be A Season 4 of ‘Wynonna Earp’?
The Canadian-American series Wynonna Earp is kind of difficult to explain. It’s been classified as a supernatural Western, fantasy horror, and plenty of other descriptors, but what it is more than anything is an inclusive fandom on par with those of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Supernatural. Now, the show is in jeopardy. Here’s what we know about Wynonna Earp Season 4.
What is Wynonna Earp about?
As the title indicates, the main character is Wynonna Earp. She is the descendant of Wyatt Earp, the greatest gunslinger in the west. Wyatt inadvertently brought upon a curse that has plagued her family ever since. The show features demons, witchcraft, immortal beings, and much, much more.
Why do people love the series?
Despite its Western feel, Wynonna Earp is very much a modern show, especially when it comes to inclusivity. Not to give anything away for those who may want to try it out after reading this, but the LGBT+ community is well-represented, and issues such as mental health are often addressed. It’s definitely not for everyone, but if you enjoy well-placed camp, quippy dialogue, and good battle involving strange creatures, you’ll probably be a fan.
What’s happening with Wynonna Earp Season 4?
After three popular seasons, airing on Space in Canada and Syfy in the U.S., news about Wynonna Earp Season 4 has been scarce. That is, until recently.
Creator Emily Andras announced that while a fourth season had been ordered, production had been delayed due to “money problems” at IDW, the company responsible for the comic book series upon which the show is based.
What can fans do to help?
Though obviously there isn’t a lot fans can do financially (unless you happen to be independently wealthy and want to give all of that money to IDW — in which case, feel free), social media is kicking into high gear. The hashtag #FightforWynonna has started to gain some serious traction, with fans tweeting out their support.
Even the cast is in on it: In addition to Andras, Melanie Scrofano (who plays Wynonna), Kat Barrell (Nicole Haught), Tim Rozon (Doc Holliday), Dominique Provost-Chalkley (Waverly Earp), and Varun Saranga (Jeremy Chetri) all tweeted out their own supportive messages to the fandom, showing their love for the series and willingness to fight for it.
What can we expect from Season 4 of Wynonna Earp?
This is a series that hinges on twists and turns, as you might expect. So much has happened in the first three seasons: Death, coming back to life, more death, vampires, resurrected demons… the list goes on and on. But the ending of Season 3 brought a very big twist that will need immediate attention.
Wynonna’s little sister, Waverly Earp, has learned a lot about herself over the past year; namely, that she isn’t 100% human. This comes into play in the final moments of the Season 3 finale, “War Paint.” Waverly realizes that she’s the only one who can save the world from the destruction put into place by Bulshar, the demon who has been terrorizing them in some form or another for two seasons. Now, the people that Wynonna loves the most in the world are gone, and she’s going to have to pull out all the stops to save them.
