From a media release:
Iconic Canadian actress, Megan Follows (REIGN) has been cast as Michelle Earp, Wynonna (Melanie Scrofano) and Waverleyâ€™s (Dominique Provost-Chalkley) mysteriously absent mother. This reveal follows the shocking cliffhanger of Season 2, when fans discovered that Mama Earp is indeed alive.
â€œMegan Follows is one of Canadaâ€™s most beloved and versatile performers, and we are beyond thrilled to have her onboard for such an iconic role,â€ said showrunner Emily Andras. â€œHer ferocity and fearlessness will fit in fabulously with the rest of our phenomenal cast.â€
Follows is best known for her role as Anne Shirley in iconic Canadian mini-series ANNE OF GREEN GABLES and Queen Catherine de Medici in REIGN. Other notable credits include HEARTLAND, SECOND CHANCES, and STRONG MEDICINE.
Following an emotional and surprising Season 2 finale that saw Wynonna give birth to the next Earp heir, sheâ€™s now hell-bent on dispatching all remaining Revenants and other supernatural beings to end the cycle of violence between future heirs and Wyatt Earpâ€™s demonic outlaws. Armed with Wyattâ€™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, WORKINâ€™ MOMS), and Jeremy Chetri (Varun Saranga, WORKINâ€™ MOMS), Wynonna challenges fate, faces new foes, and makes life-altering sacrifices in order to break the curse once and for all.
WYNONNA EARP Season 3 is currently in production in Calgary and slated to return to Space in 2018.
