Wynonna Earp creator wanted to craft a satisfying finale that left its future open

  • The beloved Syfy series ended Season 4 with its future up in the air as the series still searches for a U.S. distributor for a potential fifth season. Although creator and showrunner Emily Andras had no news about the future of the show, she said that there are more stories to tell about Wynonna and her family. “I don’t know what’s going to happen to the fate of the show but we aren’t necessarily going anywhere,” said Andras. “We are very cognizant of the fandom. We have each other. We have friendships and relationships. I think there’s a million different ways to tell Earp stories, and I hope that people continue to find Wynonna Earp, one way or another.” Andras pointed out she did not know while filming Season 4 that this season would be the show's last on Syfy. "I did not know," she says. "I 100% did not know and it’s been a real rollercoaster. But my gut told me that I had to make sure Season 4 was satisfying for the fans, our Earpers who had worked so hard to bring us back after our financial troubles after Season 3. I was determined one way or another to make sure that it was emotionally fulfilling in a way I hadn’t been in previous seasons where I was like, 'I am 100% ending on 116 cliffhangers and I dare you to cancel us. Good luck.' I felt like that wouldn’t be fair this time given how hard the fans had rallied for us, so I just wasn’t willing to take the same chance. But you can’t write from a place of fear at the end of the day. You have to honestly write the absolute best story you can, hopefully give the cast the best stuff to perform, make it fun, make it stuff they haven’t tried before — that’s all you can do. You can’t constantly hum and haw your chances or you’ll just never get out of that paralysis. You kind of have to Art of War it. You kind of have to write as if you’re already dead and just be like, 'maybe we can do a trivia night with a cannibal.'"
