Earpers rejoice! Three years after its finale on Syfy, the beloved cult Western supernatural series Wynonna Earp is getting a movie sequel! Here’s what we know!
Based on a comic book, Wynonna Earp began in Canada before being shown on Syfy. The title character is a descendant of the legendary lawman Wyatt Earp and has inherited the family curse of dealing with the demonic remnants of the outlaws Wyatt killed. A sardonic, hard-drinking gal, Wynonna is forced to return to her hometown of Purgatory.
There, she reunites with her quirky younger sister Waverly and allies with Doc Holliday (yes, the Doc Holliday) before being recruited into a government agency called Black Badge hunting the demons. Then things get nuts with angels, Wynonna’s mother, and a time jump.
The show attained a huge cult following for its action, humor, and the relationship between Waverly and deputy Nicole Haught (soon nicknamed “Wayhaught” by fans). It also worked in bits like star Melanie Scrofano’s real-life pregnancy which written into the script.
While the series was renewed for a fourth season in 2019, financial issues with studio IDW Entertainment put it off. It finally continued in 2020, only to be delayed by the pandemic. Midway through production, it was announced the series was canceled despite plans for a fifth season.
That seemed to be the end of it, but thankfully, for the show’s legions of fans, it’s coming back.
What is the reunion movie about?
Speaking to Vanity Fair, show creator Emily Andras revealed details of the film, titled Wynonna Earp: Vengeance. It will pick up after the series finale, where Waverly and Nicole get married while Wynnona and Doc hit the road together.
"Doc and Wynonna have been on an adventure, and Waverly and Nicole have been at home in [the Earp hometown of] Purgatory, doing their thing. I think it’s going to be really interesting to see, hopefully, what gets everybody home—maybe facing a challenge they’ve never faced before, something pretty intense. It’s all your favorite — hopefully — character moments, but also a little bit about growing up and sort of, like, being who you are now and earning all your choices."
There are plenty of possible threats to come, such as the evil Eve, among others. The 90-minute special should be able to bring a threat proper enough to make this revival work.
Who’s coming back for the Wynonna Earp revival?
Thankfully, the same video had Andras joined by the main players: Melanie Scrofano (Wynonna), Tim Rozon (Doc Holliday), Dom Provost-Chalkley (Waverly Earp), and Katherine Barrell (Nicole Haught), are all eager to reprise their roles. While not shown, it’s likely that Varun Saranga will also return as goofball Jeremy. There’s no word yet on other old or new cast members.

Will The Wynonna Earp movie premiere in 2024?

With a chance to do a real finale for the fans and a return to the world of Purgatory, Wynonna Earp: Vengeance is set to be one of the must-see movies for those who loved this wild show.
Wynonna Earp seasons 1-4 are streaming on Netflix.
