The fourth season of the thriller was launched in July 2020 but only six episodes could air due to the COVID-19 problem. From 5th March 2021, the remaining episodes of the fourth season have started airing on Syfy. Now, fans don’t want to wait till the final episode of the series. They want to know whether Wynnona Earp Season 5 will happen or not?
If you are also a big fan of this drama then the news for which you were waiting for the last couple of months has arrived and let me tell you that it’s not good. So, take a look at what it is –
Are We Getting To Know Wynonna Earp Season 5 Release Date?
We all know how superbly every season of the show has performed on digital screens. The series has got stunning 7.4/10 stars on the IMDb and an impressive 92% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes. After seeing these numbers every one of us believes that the Wynonna Earp Season 5 should be renewed. But I think creators have some other plans, yes a few days back they have announced their decisions which surprised the fans of the drama.
The network has given a red signal to the fifth season of the popular drama series. It means that there won’t be any Wynonna Earp season 5. The six episodes of season 4 that were launched last year haven’t performed up to the expectations of the channel. Their ratings were dropped by 27% and they also got 32% less streaming views in comparison to the previous season. The reports of tv-series finale claim that NBC Universal and Syfy didn’t find the ratings of the show interesting and that’s why they cancelled the drama.
However, it doesn’t mean that Wynonna Earp season 5 will never arrive. The latest reports of THR, have revived the hopes of fans. As per it, “Wynonna Earp producers will continue to look for a new home for the series. A production deal for season five hinges on finding a new distributor to air it. There are currently no plans to film the fifth season.” So, if the producers will get distributors in future then they can renew season 5.
How Will Wynonna Earp Season 5 Plot Be?
Creators of the show haven’t disclosed any official synopsis for the fifth season. They haven’t shared what is going to happen in season 5. Even they haven’t provided any hints about the fifth season’s plot. Therefore, it’s quite difficult for us to anticipate the events that will happen in the forthcoming season. The remaining episodes of season 4 have just started streaming on Syfy and the last episode will air on 9th April 2021.
We will be able to anticipate things only after the conclusion of the show. If you are waiting for the showrunners to reveal the official synopsis then you will have to wait for a long time. Now, you might be thinking why I’m saying so. As I told you earlier that creators have cancelled Wynonna Earp season 5 and they are looking for new distributors. So, when they will find new distributors, they will renew the series.
After the renewal script makers will write the plot for the upcoming season. So, all these things will take time and after the completion of the plot, showrunners will drop hints about the storyline of season 5.
Who Will Be Part Of Wynona Earp Season 5 Cast?
No official details have arrived regarding the cast of the forthcoming season. The cast members of season 5 will mainly depend on the ending of season 4. So, it’s quite tough for us to predict the names of actors as the fourth season hasn’t finished yet. I think Melanie Scrofano will surely make a comeback to duplicate his role of Wynonna Earp season 5.
Apart from her, many other stars from previous seasons will return in season 5. But not all the actors will be the same in the fifth season, creators will include some new faces in the drama. There will be a good ratio between the former and new actors. However, major previous stars will make comebacks to replicate their respective roles. According to this the cast of season 5 will be as –
- Melanie Scrofano will play her role of Wynonna Earp.
- Shamier Anderson will be seen as Deputy Marshal Xavier Dolls.
- Tim Rozon will deliver his role of Doc Holliday.
- Dominique Provost-Chalkley will portray the character of Waverly Earp.
- Varun Saranga will display the character of Jeremy Chetri.
- Dani Kind will present the character of Mercedes Gardner.
- Chantel Riley will play her role of Kate (Katalin) aka Contessa.
- Greg Lawson will be seen as Sheriff Randy Nedley.
