Sheriff Carter is back (well, kind of)! A familiar face will be showing up in Haven next season as a former Eureka star has signed on for a season-long arc on the Syfy series.

Colin Ferguson, who played Sheriff Jack Carter for five seasons on the beloved series Eureka, will be headed to Haven once the new season premieres. Ferguson will play William, a “handsome, mysterious stranger, whose secret agenda” leads him to Audrey Parker (Emily Rose).

[Possible spoilers ahead.]

The third season ended on a pretty massive cliffhanger, and Deadline reports the season premiere will pick up six months after the finale, which saw the town nearly destroyed by meteors and Audrey finally face her mysterious origins.

Ferguson could always play the slapstick off with a bit of believable drama, so it’ll be interesting to see what he can do with a more series tone.

Production is actually ramping up today in Halifax, Nova Scotia, so hopefully we’ll have a peek or two at the new season soon.

Are you glad to see Ferguson back in action on Syfy?
