It looks like Audrey Parker won't vanish at the end of Haven this season. At least not for long. Syfy has ordered a fourth 13-episode season of the mysterious Stephen King-inspired series.

[Spoilers ahead!]

The storyline so far this season has had former FBI agent and present Haven cop Audrey Parker worried that she'll disappear at the same time a meteor shower called the Hunter strikes the town, just as other incarnations of her (aka Lucy and Sarah) have in the past. Answering who or what Audrey really is, along with Audrey's search for the Colorado Kid, have made this a very big season when it comes to the show's mythology.

Haven has scored as the number-one cable program among 18-49 and 25-54 adults in its Friday night 10 p.m. ET timeslot, and averaged 2.4 million total viewers this season.

According to Syfy's Mark Stern: "We couldn't be happier to see the story of Audrey Parker and the creepy, quirky town of Haven continue next year. Season three has hit a creative and critical high and we're very excited to see where the talented production team takes our colorful cast of characters led by the perfect trifecta of Emily Rose, Eric Balfour and Lucas Bryant in season four."
