Syfy is officially bringing its gun-slinging, demon-hunting supernatural series Wynonna Earp back for a second season.

The network and IDW Entertainment formally announced the renewal at San Diego Comic-Con, with season two set to hit the airwaves in 2017. Wynonna Earp is based on the IDW comic book series of the same name created by Beau Smith. During its first season, the show won the E! News TV Scoop Award for Best New Series of 2016. They’ll also be some crossover from TV to comic, as TV character Officer Haught is set to be introduced in the IDW run.

“In just one season, Wynonna Earp has struck a chord with the fans,” said IDW Entertainment President David Ozer in a statement. “We look forward to continuing this epic journey.”

If you’re unfamiliar, the series follows Wyatt Earp's granddaughter Wynonna, along with her sister Waverly as they return to Purgatory to deal with spirits still hanging around after being taken out by Earp’s “Peacemaker.” The show is a mix of western, horror and humor, and kind of has a Buffy the Vampire Slayer vibe. Just, you know, more western-y.
Season two of Wynonna Earp is set to air on Syfy in 2017.
