As the supernatural-horror-fantasy TV series Grimm wrapped an excellent series finale last Friday, the supernatural-horror-Western Syfy Channel series Wynonna Earp is wrapping up its second series production in Alberta, Canada. Season 2 returns on Fridays this June, rejoining tough-as-nails heroine Wynonna Earp (Melanie Scrofano) as she continues to pick off the remainder of the 77 “Revenant” demons in the town of Purgatory thanks to the legacy of her great-great-grandfather Wyatt–with the help of his legendary Peacemaker and the seemingly immortal Doc Holliday (Tim Rozon).
The Season One finale was full of activity and issues to be resolved this year: Black Badge cop Dolls (Shamier Anderson) had deputized Nicole Haught (Katherine Barrell) onto his government team. Older sister Willa (Natalie Krill) shot Nicole after conning Wynonna into handing over the Peacemaker. Doc and Dolls teamed up against the Revenants. Bobo (Michael Eklund) dropped a bombshell, telling Wynonna that Waverly (Dominique Provost-Chalkley) isn’t really her sister. At the edge of the Triangle, Wynonna faced off against sister Willa, killing her with the Peacemaker to save her from an even worse death from a hellmouth monster. Wynonna managed to escape, closing the Triangle. Wynonna finally killed Bobo. Wynonna and Doc decided to rescue Dolls as Waverly emerges, possessed from touching some primordial ooze at the hellmouth. Cliffhanger!
Look for twelve new episodes this season, and the addition of new cast member Tamara Duarte (Longmire) as Rosita, enlisted to help fight the Revenants. Will we learn who are Waverly’s parents if she is really not an Earp? Will Wynonna be able to save her? If you missed Season One don’t fret: You can watch it all now on Netflix. Check out this preview to Season Two:
With Wynonna Earp’s presence at the first ClexaCon convention this year and the corresponding message to TV series writers to eliminate the lesbian death trope, it’s a safe bet the popular “Wayhaught” relationship of Waverly and Nicole Haught will survive the season.
Look for the premier of Season Two of Wynonna Earp, Friday, June 9, 2017, at 9 p.m. Central on Syfy.
