Giddy up! Why yes, we are counting the days until Wynonna Earp makes its Canadian debut on CHCH. But until that first episode drops on Monday, April 4 at 9 p.m. ET, the network snuck us a handful of images to share.

As previously announced, Wynonna Earp is based on the IDW Publishing comic created by Beau Smith and adapted for television by Emily Andras (Lost Girl). The 13-episode first season features Melanie Scrofano as Wynonna Earp, Tim Rozon as legendary con-artist Doc Holiday, Shamier Anderson as Wynonna’s ally Agent Dolls and Dominique Provost-Chalkley as Wynonna’s sister, Waverly.

Canadian Wynonna Earp fans already had a debut date to get excited about. Now we’ve got a teaser trailer to salivate over. The live action take on Beau Smith’s comic drops Monday, March 28, on CHCH and U.S. broadcaster Syfy just got our hearts pumping with a peek at what the series will look like. In a word? Gorgeous. And there’s plenty of snark thanks to executive producer and showrunner Emily Andras (Lost Girl).
Smith’s comic recounts the adventures of Wynonna Earp—Wyatt Earp’s granddaughter—as she takes down demons and other supernatural baddies. In the 13-episode series Melanie Scrofano takes on the lead role; among Wynona’s posse are Doc Holiday (Tim Rozon), Agent Dolls (Shamier Anderson) and Wynona’s sister, Waverly (Dominique Provost-Chalkley).
