Wynonna Earp - Season 4 - Production Delayed as IDW Seeks Funding *Updated*



Update: IDW has reached out to Deadline and shared a message that they remain committed to the Wynonna Earp story. "It is still unclear whether its TV series adaptation will live or the Wynonna story would be continued in a different form" per Deadline.

"IDW is committed to continuing to tell the Wynonna Earp story," the company said in a statement in response to Deadline's story. "Much like the fans, we are passionate about not only the series but the comics, the characters and the overall message that the Wynonna Earp franchise carries. We are in the process of working out the details for how the Wynonna story will continue and will share new details very soon."

Update: Per Deadline, Syfy has reached out to IDW to offer assistance. The situation is noted as being dire.

Deadline notes that IDW is "running a deficit and cannot proceed with production on the fourth season at this time". It is also of note that apparently not only a 4th season was ordered but a 5th one too.

I hear the network had quietly renewed the show not just for one but two more seasons — 4 and 5 — and IDW is contractually obligated to deliver them.

The situation appears pretty dire right now to a point that the network has reportedly asked the producers whether, if they cannot deliver more episodes, they could at least make a wrap-up movie or any sort of final chapter to give fans closure.




Production on Season 4 of Wynonna Earp has been delayed per The Hollywood Reporter.

The IDW/Syfy co-production has delayed production on the upcoming fourth season due to "financial challenges mounting the series from producers IDW Entertainment." Despite this Syfy remains committed to the series.

IDW co-produces the series with Syfy. Per THR, Syfy licenses Earp from IDW Entertainment and therefore pays for production costs and owns the rights to the series. Right now, IDW has pushed production, a new start date has not been decided. IDW is contractually obligated to deliver the new season per THR.

Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that production on season four has been delayed due to financial challenges mounting the series from producers IDW Entertainment.

"Syfy ordered season four of Wynonna Earp from IDW and is completely committed to the series. This has not changed," Syfy said in a statement to THR.
