Good news, Haven fans -- we will definitely be getting a resolution to last season’s cliffhanger, plus a whole lot more.
Syfy has announced that Haven will be returning for a super-sized, 26-episode fifth season, which is essentially double the size of the previous 13-episode seasons. Though all the episodes will be in production, that doesn’t mean we’ll get to see the whole run any sooner.
The first 13 episodes are set to run this year, while the final 13 episodes will be scheduled to air in 2015. But, instead of it being seasons 5 and 6, it’s essentially seasons 5A and 5B. The report doesn’t say anything about this being the end, so it’s certainly possible the series could live on past 2015.
All the series’ main stars are also contracted to stick around, with Emily Rose (Audrey Parker), Lucas Bryant (Nathan Wournos) and Eric Balfour (Duke Crocker) are all expected to feature heavily in the extra-large season. Production on the Stephen King-based show is set to ramp up in the spring.
Despite being in its fourth season, the series’ risky move to dive head first into mythology the past two seasons worked, and the show actually showed gains in the crucial Adults 18-34 and 18-49 ratings demo. The last season ended with a 3 percent year-to-year increase in ratings. In Live +7 numbers, the show averaged 2.3 million viewers per week.
Are you glad to hear there'll be more than enough “troubles” to go around in 2014 and 2015?
