What’s going on with Wynonna Earp? According to The Hollywood Reporter, funding is not available for a fourth season of the Syfy TV show despite a renewal and plans for a fifth season.
The horror western centers on lawman Wyatt Earp’s demon-fighting great-great-granddaughter, who inherited his abilities as well as his legendary gun. The cast includes Melanie Scrofana, Shamier Anderson, Tim Rozon, and Dominique Provost-Chalkley.
Although Syfy has already renewed Wynonna Earp, it’s unclear if the series will ever produce a fourth season. According to THR, the show’s producer, IDW Entertainment, does not have enough funding to justify another season let alone two more seasons of Wynonna Earp.
So is the show cancelled? It’s uncertain as of reporting if/when season four of Wynonna Earp will air. Adam Wyden, a hedge fund founder involved with IDW, told THR that the production company is trying to find a way to come up with the money, but the show’s status is up in the air right now.
Wyden says if a streaming service like Netflix or Hulu can buy the international rights to Wynonna Earp, that should help cover the cost of season four.
