Everything about Wynonna Earp, eh?

From Eric Volmers of the Calgary Herald:

Link: Calgary’s supernatural modern western Wynonna Earp ramps up for Season 3
“Season 3 does make it feel like you’ve really arrived. Season 1 feels like: ‘Oh my God, is anyone going to watch it?’ Season 2 feels like maybe you tricked them when they weren’t looking into giving you another season. Third season feels like it’s an actual thing. I think there’s a confidence to this season, and I mean that in the positive sense of the word. We really know what we are as a show.” Continue reading.

Wynonna Earp welcomes Canadian music icon Jann Arden to Purgatory

From a media release:

Pour the whiskey and powder the doughnuts, Purgatory is welcoming another iconic Canadian resident for Season 3. INNERSPACE broke the news last night that multi-platinum, award-winning songstress, Jann Arden, will appear in the upcoming season of WYNONNA EARP as council woman Bunny Loblaw.

Arden joins the cast alongside previously announced Canadian icon Megan Follows, who is set to appear as Wynonna’s (Melanie Scrofano) mother Michelle Earp.

According to showrunner Emily Andras, Arden’s WYNONNA EARP character Bunny Loblaw, is “a force to be reckoned with. She rules the Town Council with an iron fist and a will to match. She knows what’s best for Purgatory and will stop at nothing to enforce her vision of an idyllic community.”

Sounds like Bunny may be a little “insensitive” to our favourite gunslinger. We’ll have to wait and see who gives Wynonna more trouble this season, the town’s Revenants or Regulators.

The multi-dimensional artist should feel right at home as the 12-episode, one-hour, western sci-fi series is currently in production in her hometown of Calgary until May 2018.

WYNONNA EARP Season 3 is slated to return to Space in 2018.

From Ariel Sobel:

Link: By refusing to bury its gays, Wynonna Earp changes the TV game
“This genre is particular, is fresh for subverting it and taking all of those traditional male roles and replacing them with women or people of color and LGBTQ characters. It just felt like it was a way to reinvent something that lived in the land of the patriarchy and make it completely, completely fresh. The myth is that the American West is a place you can reinvent yourself, it’s a place of individuality, but it seemed to have only been a place where white men got to be the heroes.” Continue reading.

From Eric Volmers of the Calgary Herald:

There is no delicate way to bring up the question with an actress: So, how do you feel about playing a grandma?

But when talking to Megan Follows these days, it is an unavoidable topic.

Yes, the actress adored by Canadian audiences as the perky and youthful Anne of Green Gables is playing a grandmother in not one but two Calgary-shot series. Continue reading.

From Maggie Stankiewicz of Starry Mag:

Link: Wynonna Earp: This Generation’s Chosen One
If you’ve ever found yourself immersed in geek culture at some point between the year 1997 and today, chances are that you’ve heard the old adage, “In every generation there is a Chosen One. She alone will stand against the vampires, the demons, and the forces of darkness. She is the Slayer.” Joss Whedon’s camp-fest cult hit turned feminist icon Buffy the Vampire Slayer has transcended her roots to become a staple in popular culture, the portrait of a reluctant heroine and the inspiration behind decades of “strong female characters. Among the most influential of these characters is Wynonna Earp. Continue reading.
