The 6 Best Moments From the Wynonna Earp Comic-Con Panel
Wynonna Earp fans, rejoice! At San Diego Comic-Con, executive producer and showrunner Emily Andras, comic book creator Beau Smith joined Melanie Scrofano (Wynonna Earp), Kat Barrell (Nicole Haught), Chantel Riley (Kate), and Greg Lawson (Randy Nedley) got together to discuss Season 3 and what might be in store in Season 4.
It was a feel-good panel. Here are the moments we loved the most.
Season 4 is a go!
Andras shared her reaction to recent news that the production for a 12-episode Season 4 of Wynonna Earp was back on track, with filming slated to begin in January 2020 and the season penciled in to air next summer.
“I’m hoping to make it the Earp-iest of all Earp seasons that ever Earped,” she said. Later, she talked about her desire to focus on the theme of resistance. “I want a poster for Season 4 with all your beautiful faces that just says, ‘Fight’,” she said,
A new season 4 teaser
“Buckle up, buttercup.” SYFY celebrated Comic-Con and Wynonna Earp’s renewed production schedule with a small treat for the fans: a new teaser, combining highlights and bloopers from Season 3.
A special Comic-Con message from Waverly and Doc Halliday
Tim Rozon (Doc Halliday) and Dominique Provost-Chalkley (Waverly Earp) couldn’t make it to Comic-Con, but they gave us the next best thing: a video message of them singing a lovely rendition of the Wynonna Earp theme song. They sent their love to the cast and the fans: “We love you, we adore you, we miss you, and thank you for being an inspiration.”
The cast discusses Wynonna’s sword
Wynonna added a sword to her arsenal in Season 3. As it turns out, Scrofano is still getting used to her new weapon.
“I forgot that I had a sword, so I’m hoping I can convince [Andras] that the sword is too violent,” she said. When she reminded Andras that she had license to be “bad at having a gun” in Season 1, Andras granted her permission at being bad at having a sword.
Later, Andras suggested, “maybe Nedley is good with a sword.” Greg Lawson didn’t think this was a good idea. “Do I have to start working out? Thanks, Mel.”
Beau Smith talks about the mysterious Valdez
The name Valdez appeared at the Earp homestead at the end of Season 3. Comic book creator Beau Smith took the opportunity to give some background on this potential new character.
“She’s a character that I created a long time ago, but she’s a special character, so I’ve kept her in the drawer,” he explained. “She’s a possibly 1000-year-old princess warrior from the Mayan era. She’s been with Black Badge since its creation.”
He described her as “Xena Warrior Princess crossed with Spock.”
“[She’s] very logical,” he said. “She doesn’t suffer fools, because your head could end up on the end of her war club. If she ends up coming on the show, it’s the same with Wynonna and Bobo Del Rey when I created him 20 years ago, hand it over to Emily and the cast, there’s no hesitation. She’s proven already with Wynonna, Bobo and twists and turns, she can do it.”
