It’s been a long year for Wynonna Earp fans. After the popular Syfy series went on hiatus in early 2019 because of financial issues at IDW, Earpers quite literally took to the streets to rally support for the beloved show. Convention after convention saw Earpers with signs and apparel covered in the slogan, “#FightforWynonna” and despite production being halted, fans and cast alike came together to continue supporting any opportunity to bring back the much needed gun-slinging sass. And now, after far too many months in limbo, Wynnona Earp is back.
Emily Andras commented in an interview: “The Earpers, this is all thanks to them. The movement they have built on kindness and inclusivity is legendary, but what I admire most is their determination to fight not only for what they want, but what they deserve. The fans showed up right when we needed them most — but then, they always do.”
To get into the nitty gritty details that kept Wynnona Earp from actively being on our screens at this very moment, IDW has partnered with Cineflix Studios, who will handle all of Wynnona Earp’s international rights (a struggle that has kept Wynonna Earp’s third season from moving to streaming service Netflix in the past). With seasons 4 and 5 already renewed by Syfy back in the summer of 2018, Wynonna Earp should now, hopefully, be good to go for the next few years. Syfy has reaffirmed its dedication to the series by stating:
“Syfy has never wavered in its support of Wynonna Earp, a unique and important series with some of the most passionate fans anywhere. To our Earper friends: Thank you for your patience and faith as we worked with our partners to ensure that Wynonna can get back to where it belongs…on Syfy.”
Which means that Earpers can now enjoy more of this:

Wynnona Earp is slated to return in July 2020.
