'Wynonna Earp' Season 4: Chantel Riley thinks Wynonna has an upper hand over Doc as Kate is still in a ‘one-sided’ love story
Chantel Riley portrays the beautiful wife of Doc Holiday, Mary Katherine Horony-Cummings on Syfy's 'Wynonna Earp'
Fans of Syfy’s ‘Wynonna Earp’ have been eagerly waiting for the upcoming season 4 of the series, and after the long wait, we are in luck.
The series is expected to start filming the upcoming episodes in January 2020.
Despite some trouble in the studio, specifically with regards to budget, the determination of the Earpers to bring the show back has paid off.
Speaking about the return of the next season, showrunner Emily Andras said: “The Earpers, this is all thanks to them. The movement they have built on kindness and inclusivity is legendary, but what I admire most is their determination to fight not only for what they want, but what they deserve. The fans showed up right when we needed them most — but then, they always do.”
Since the show is still a while away, we have much to wonder about, from the state of Purgatory to the future of baby Alice Michelle Earp.
One of the looming questions within this large arena is what we need to expect out of Doc Holliday’s (Tim Rozon) returned undead lover, Mary Katherine Horony-Cummings aka Kate aka Contessa aka Big Nose Kate, portrayed by the talented Chantel Riley.
Although Riley promises that Emily [Andras] and the writing team are working hard to bring an incredible season for all the Earpers, she claims to know little about what is to come.
We can, however, be certain that Kate will have a prominent role in the upcoming season, even if Team Earp may not be convinced that she is the best ally for them – despite all the times they have worked together.
“I think that even though Kate has fought on the side of Team Earp, I can still see her keeping a distance between herself and the team. Though she has good intentions, she is still a very independent woman and likes to do things her own way,” Riley told MEA World Wide (MEAWW) while speaking about her character, who has a deep-rooted history with Doc.
After many years of being separated, and with Doc having fathered Wynonna’s child, their love-hate relationship may have come to a standstill.
Riley says, “I feel like Wynonna has an upper hand. I feel like at this point Kate is more so in a one-sided love”
However, she did find a roommate in Mercedes (Dani Kind) last we saw her, and it would be pretty amazing to see how their dynamic plays out as Riley wonders “would it have been contentious or would they surprisingly get along and be the best of friends wearing fabulous outfits every day?”
It would be something for Emily and the writers to explore, for sure.
Season 6 of ‘Wynonna Earp’ is yet to get a release date, but the premiere scheduled for mid-2020.
