The SYFY original series, Wynonna Earp, is gearing up for its third season later this month thanks to its most passionate fans. Without the Earpers, we just wouldn't be able to revisit the town known as Purgatory to watch Wynonna dispatch demonic bad guys with style.
To celebrate the show's return, SYFY WIRE is breaking down everything you need to know about Wynonna Earp's first two seasons into one easily digestible video. In order to do that, we had to largely skip over Wynonna's comic book past from the '90s, when writer and creator Beau Smith helped her stand out from the crowd.
Emily Andras deserves a lot of credit for re-developing Wynonna's character for television and for coming up with a brand new mythology as well as Wynonna's supporting cast. Even Wynonna herself was given a deeper characterization and a more complex family life. But the one thing that's always been true about Wynonna is that she is the direct descendant of Wyatt Earp, the legendary lawman from the Old West.
In the show, the Earp family is cursed by Revenants, the reincarnated outlaws that were killed by Wyatt Earp during his lifetime. Fortunately, Wynonna has Peacekeeper, Wyatt's supernaturally powered gun that can send the Revenants straight back to Hell. However, Wynonna's greatest assets are her sister, her friends, and the allies who stand by her side.
Watch the video below as we give you all of the Wynonna Earp intel in two minutes or less! And then update your calendar to catch the third season premiere of Wynonna Earp on Friday, July 20, only on SYFY.
