From a media release:
IDW Entertainment, SEVEN24 Films, Space (soon to be CTV Sci-fi Channel), and SYFY announced today that â€œWynonna Earp,â€ the award-winning series based on the IDW comic created by Beau Smith, has been greenlit to start production for its fourth season.
With a major commitment from Bell Mediaâ€™s Crave as a new production partner and streaming platform, production is slated to begin later this year. Season 4 is expected to debut in Summer 2020 on Space in Canada and SYFY in the US, with Seasons 1-3 streaming on Crave in Canada in the fall.
Additionally, IDW Entertainment announced that Cineflix Studios has come aboard to co-produce, with Cineflix rights handling international sales for all four seasons of the series. Winner of the 2018 Peopleâ€™s Choice Award for Favorite Sci-Fi/Fantasy Show, â€œWynonna Earpâ€ follows the life of the great, great granddaughter (Melanie Scrofano, â€œBad Bloodâ€) of famous lawman Wyatt Earp. The action-packed supernatural sci-fi series stars Scrofano, Tim Rozon
(â€œSchittâ€™s Creekâ€), Dominique Provost-Chalkley (â€œAvengers: Age of Ultronâ€) and Katherine Barrell (â€œWorking Momsâ€).
Known for having one of the most active social media communities – from arranging fan conventions around the world to raising money for LGBTQ charities – â€œWynonna Earpâ€ has been praised for its “fierce and committed performancesâ€*, and has received and been nominated for numerous awards including Canadian Screen Awards, GLAAD Media Awards, Directors Guild of Canada, Writers Guild of Canada and Alberta Film & Television Awards.
SEVEN24’s Jordy Randall and Tom Cox, in addition to Cineflixâ€™s Peter Emerson and Brett Burlock, serve as Executive Producers along with Todd Berger and Rick Jacobs.
One thought on “Space, SYFY, IDW Entertainment, SEVEN24 Films announce return to production of Wynonna Earp”
Finally! I was beginning to wonder if that was it for the series, I had read previously of their troubles. This fall things are going to get very interesting with Warner, Disney, Apple and NBC all getting into the streaming business to compete with Netflix, Amazon, HBO, CBS All Access and Hulu (now majority owned by Disney). All these new services will be chomping at the bit to get original content and shows like Wynonna Earp, with a built-in fanbase, could have been grabbed for American streaming rights. Crave TV has it now in Canada. Will NBC Universal, which owns Sci-Fi Channel, be showing it on their upcoming service? I noticed that they quietly picked up the rights to CBC’s Fortunate Son.
I’m starting to hear people in my life talk about Crave TV so I guess it’s finally becoming mainstream now. A lot of people now have Netflix, Crave TV and Amazon (which they actually have for the free Prime shipping). I currently am watching Crave TV, Amazon, CBC Gem and Netflix, as well as TSN’s streaming service for Saskatchewan Roughriders games in the summer and Winnipeg Jets games in the winter. I personally won’t be subscribing to any additional streaming services unless someone finally pics up Vikings for streaming in Canada (I am now a couple seasons behind since I cordcut).
