– Season 2 of the Canadian Screen Award-winning original series airs Fridays at 10 p.m. ET –
– Season 2 audience more than doubles over Season 1 –

“It’s classic horror and kitsch combined, which makes for an intensely watchable show.” – Variety

“The WYNONNA EARP that Emily Andras has wonderfully adapted is also unique in its whip-smart dialogue and oodles of charm.” – Collider

TORONTO (July 22, 2017) – Space continues to fuel its schedule with high-octane, Canadian original productions as it announced today it has committed to an additional 12 episodes of fan-favourite western-horror drama, WYNONNA EARP. Created by Emily Andras, produced by Calgary-based SEVEN24 Films, and distributed globally by IDW Entertainment, Season 3 of WYNONNA EARP sees the return of Canadian actor Melanie Scrofano as the titular demon hunter of the one-hour cult hit, slated to debut in 2018.

“Space has a long tradition of investing in unconventional programs that push boundaries, and WYNONNA EARP is no exception,” said Mike Cosentino, Senior Vice-President, Content and Programming. “With just two seasons under its gun holster, this spirited series has garnered accolades, amassed a loyal fan base, and captured the hearts of critics. We’re thrilled to be on board with SEVEN24 Films, and the talented cast and crew, for a third season.”

WYNONNA EARP follows legendary lawman Wyatt Earp’s descendant, Wynonna (Scrofano), who inherits his mystical gun, Peacemaker. With it, Wynonna and her posse of dysfunctional allies must fight against supernatural beings and other paranormal occurrences in a raucous, whisky-soaked struggle to break her family’s demonic curse.

Andras (KILLJOYS, LOST GIRL) developed the wildly imaginative series for television and serves as Executive Producer and Showrunner. SEVEN24’s Jordy Randall and Tom Cox serve as Executive Producers along with Ted Adams and David Ozer, as well as Todd Berger and Rick Jacobs.

Since its premiere on June 9, Season 2 of WYNONNA EARP has seen its total audience more than double with a 52% increase compared to Season 1, and seen a 73% increase in the key A18-49 demo. During its Fridays at 10 p.m. ET timeslot, Space is the most-watched entertainment specialty network.

In the next episode, “Future in the Past” (Friday, July 28 at 10 p.m. ET), Wynonna has an opportunity to discover the origins of the Earp curse while her team races to save the future.

WYNONNA EARP was developed for television by Emily Andras who also serves as executive producer, writer, and showrunner. Executive producers are Jordy Randall (HEARTLAND), Tom Cox (YOUNG DRUNK PUNK), David Ozer, Ted Adams, Rick Jacobs, and Todd Berger. Brian Dennis (THE BEST LAID PLANS) is producer. The writing team spearheaded by Andras includes Alexandra Zarowny, Brendon Yorke, John Callaghan, and Caitlin Fryers. Directors are Paolo Barzman, Ron Murphy, Brett Sullivan, and April Mullen.

WYNONNA EARP is produced by SEVEN24 Films in association with Space and Bell Media and distributed by IDW Entertainment. Production Executive for Bell Media is Rebecca DiPasquale. Tom Hastings is Director, Original Programming, Bell Media. Corrie Coe is Senior Vice-President, Original Programming, Bell Media.
