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.
