Syfy hangs up ‘Wynonna Earp’s’ guns

US-based NBCUniversal-owned cable channel Syfy has cancelled supernatural western Wynonna Earp, with the show to end following the upcoming second half of its fourth season.

The show, which is co-produced by IDW Entertainment, Cineflix Studios and SEVEN24 Films, airs on Syfy in the US and CTV Sci-Fi in Canada. The concluding six episodes of season four will debut on 5 March, with the finale now due on 9 April.

Based on the IDW comic created by Beau Smith, Wynonna Earp was developed for TV by showrunner Emily Andras and tracks the life of legendary lawman Wyatt Earp’s great-granddaughter (Melanie Scrofano) as she battles demons and other supernatural beings.

The show, which debuted on Syfy in 2016, had already been announced to be returning for a fifth season, and while that no longer appears to be the case, US reports suggest producers are looking for a new home for the show.

“From the start, Emily advocated for compelling female characters who come into their own power, authority, and independence – and who are also complicated and three-dimensional,” James Durie, head of scripted at Wynonna Earp distributor Cineflix Rights told TBI last year.

“The character of Wynonna Earp makes viewers from diverse backgrounds believe anything is possible – as long as you’re willing to fight for it. It’s a show about family and love and embracing who you are meant to be regardless of other people’s perceptions and expectations.”
