Wynonna Earp Season 2 News
Showrunner Emily Andras shared some details with Variety about what fans could expect in season 2. “This year, we really get to see the team fighting together and working together,” she said. “There are weird pair-ups, which I’m really excited about. I’m really interested when it’s almost like a weird workplace drama — but the workplace involves fighting demons.”
“The stakes are higher than ever,” adds Andras. “Because we really examine the nature of family. Can you ever be a good person if you’re someone who is forced to make life-and-death decisions? At the same time, there is a lot of fun. These people really like each other. They make time for that.” Fans will likewise make time for Wynonna Earp season 2 this summer.
One exciting cast announcement mentioned that Tamara Duarte of Longmire will be joining the cast of Wynonna Earp season 2 in a recurring role. She will play Rosita, recruited by Doc to join the team’s demon-fighting mission. Andras promises Duarte will be shaking up many of the established relationships of season 1.
At Clexacon in March, Andras shared with fans the news that season 1 of Wynonna Earp would be available on Netflix in May of 2017, but just weeks later, Netflix announced an April 1 release date, allowing latecomers plenty of time to catch up on the show. Posters like the one below were handed out to convention attendees, but the inexact “Summer 2017” date included on it has since been narrowed down to June 9 specifically as mentioned above.
In the meantime, fans were no doubt thrilled to hear that at the Wynonna Earp panel at San Diego Comic-Con, the sometimes dark, sometimes poignant, sometimes snarky Syfy series had been renewed for season 2. The Emily Andras show has been a favorite both of those who followed her from her Lost Girl showrunning days and for new fans of the Buffy-esque supernatural thriller.
“I’m absolutely thrilled we have the opportunity to deliver more of our witty, female-led, kickass, diverse supernatural series to our passionate fan base around the world,” Andras said in a press release. Like Lost Girl before it, Wynonna Earp has made a name for itself in the LGBT community by featuring a complex and nuanced lesbian relationship as part of its character line-up.
Paired with a rich mythology, a classic treatment of good vs. evil, and a cast of characters that play well off each other, the renewal announcement was expected and welcomed both by convention-goers and the larger fandom. Although the ratings weren’t always stellar, renewals on Syfy of other even lower-rated series made the show’s fate hopeful.
The freshman series scored big with both critics and fans, becoming a hit on social media, spawning hashtags, and trending weekly with each new episode, and it recently nabbed the E! News TV Scoop Award for Best New Series of 2016. Wynonna Earp stars Melanie Scrofano, Shamier Anderson, Tim Rozon, and Dominique Provost-Chalkley and is based on the IDW Publishing comic book series of the same name created by Beau Smith.
