It’s been nearly two years since a new episode of Wynonna Earp last aired on SyFy, and to be honest, it feels like it’s been even longer. First production on Season Four was stymied by financial problems from the co-financier of the series, IDW Entertainment. Then, once that was resolved, the entirety of Hollywood was shut down.

Perhaps if Emily Andras and crew had known there would be so many complications and delays, they wouldn’t have ended Season 3 on a cliffhanger. Since September of 2018, Wynonna’s sister Waverly has been trapped in another dimension and Wynonna has been rendered defenseless, the Earp Curse broken and her magic gun lost. To borrow a quote from the short theme song, that ain’t the way to live.

Here’s the situation, though: only six episodes of Wynonna Earp’s fourth season were filmed before the pandemic shut down production. Rather than let their fans wait even LONGER, SyFy has decided to release those episodes later this summer. This will no doubt result in another abrupt cliffhanger ending, but it shouldn’t take as long to get the resolution. We hope.

Wynonna is back Sunday, July 26 at 10 PM on SyFy. Here’s a trailer for you…

The infamous Earp Curse is broken, and witty and wild demon hunter Wynonna Earp would love to be celebrating with cold whisky and hot donuts. Too bad she has to rescue everyone she loves, save the town of Purgatory, and take on her most diabolical, Earp-hating enemy yet — all without her trustworthy gun, Peacemaker. And that’s just Monday…
