From a media release:
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.
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.
Season 2 of WYNONNA EARP saw its total audience increase by 30% compared to Season 1, and had an increase of 46% in the key A18-49 demo. During its Fridays at 10 p.m. ET timeslot, Space was the most-watched entertainment specialty network among A18-49 viewers.
WYNONNA EARP was developed for television by Emily Andras who also serves as executive producer, writer, and showrunner. Executive producers are Jordy Randall (HEARTLAND), Tom Cox (YOUNG DRUNK PUNK), David Ozer, Ted Adams, Rick Jacobs, and Todd Berger. Brian Dennis (THE BEST LAID PLANS) is producer.
WYNONNA EARP is produced by SEVEN24 Films in association with Space and Bell Media and distributed by IDW Entertainment.
