    For fans of Syfy's cult hit Wynonna Earp, this weekend has been a long time coming. While the series was picked up for a fourth season back in 2018, it looked all but dead after the show's production company faced financial challenges and the cast was released from their contracts. Enter "The Earpers," the show's small but devoted fanbase whose unique campaign to save Wynonna Earp led to its resurrection.
