Syfy’s supernatural Western horror series ‘Wynonna Earp’ narrates the story of the titular gunslinger who happens to be the great-great-granddaughter of Wyatt Earp. Her life’s mission has been to battle the revenants - the reincarnated outlaws that Wyatt killed – and other supernatural beings that plague the Ghost River Triangle, which is where her home town of Purgatory is situated.
Working with the secret government agency Black Badge Division (BBD), she has an ageless Doc Holliday, her sister Waverly Earp and Waverly’s girlfriend Sheriff Deputy Nicole Haught fighting by her side. While the first season’s focus was on Bobo Del Rey, the leader of the local revenants and taking him down, the second season showed a scarier man from Wyatt’s past who has been resurrected by his sister-wives.
A release date is yet to be finalized for 'Wynonna Earp,' but on July 2, 2019 it was announced that production of the series would begin in late 2019.
‘Wynonna Earp’ showrunner Emily Andras revealed on Twitter, “🎶it’s beginning to look a lot like #WynonnaEarp season four is going to be full of fraught feels and frivolity”🎵” While we are struggling to understand exactly what that means, we do know that some of the major cliffhangers season 3 left us with, will be addressed in the upcoming season 4.
In season 3, we saw the Earp Curse has been finally broken and that Waverly is the new Guardian of the Gate, and has been dragged into the freaking Garden of Eden – yes, the Biblical one. Also, Purgatory is now empty except for Nedley, and one clue - the name "Valdez" that has been scratched into a wall. We will definitely explore what happened to everyone in Purgatory come season 4, and also we might hear about or see Wynonna and Doc's daughter.
The role of the badass Wynonna Earp is played by Melanie Scrofano who is best known for her role as Rebecca on the CBC dramedy series ‘Being Erica’ and Tia on CTV's 'The Listener.' Her sister, cheerful and bubbly Waverly Earp is played by English actress Dominique Provost-Chalkley. Meanwhile, Waverly’s girlfriend deputy Sheriff Nicole Haught sought life in Katherine Barrell.
The other main characters include Tim Rozon as Doc Holliday, Wyatt Earp's famed and immortal partner. Shamier Anderson’s Deputy Dolls was killed off in the previous season and will not be reprising his role in season 4.
Canadian producer and writer Emily Andras is the brains behind ‘Wynonna Earp.’ Having served as an executive producer and showrunner for ‘Lost Girl,’ she took on the project right after the Showcase series wrapped. She had served as an executive consulting producer in its fifth and final season of the series and as a writer and consulting producer for the first two seasons.
