My Weekend Crush

You might have heard a mighty whoop on Jan. 15. It was Earpers the globe over rejoicing as filming started on the new, long-delayed fourth season of “WYnonna Earp.” As know all too well, financial troubles threatened to torpedo the show’s new season. So the #FightForWynonna campaign was launched and, damn, if fandom didn’t get things done.

Now, finally, the show is shooting. Production is expected to last through May in Calgary, and then will air in the summer on Space in Canada and Syfy in the U.S.

Show Creator/Lead Unicorn Emily Andras told the Calgary Herald:

“We tried to incorporate some of the values and feelings of the #fightforwynonna journey,” she says. “I think a lot of themes for Season 4 centre around the idea of fighting to protect what you love and your home and feelings of rebellion and resistance and the idea of being underdogs and fighting both bureaucracy and also evil seen and unseen. It’s that feeling of finding your people and making sure you are willing to go to war for the things you love and the people you love. If anything, I think those things have been reinforced thanks to #fightforwynonna.”
At least three new actors are also joining the cast this season: “Kim’s Convenience” star Andrew Phung, “Fortunate Son” actor Ty Olsson and 18-year-old actress/singer Martina Ortiz-Luis. I have absolutely no idea what characters they’ll be playing, but you know I’m excited to find out.

It’s been a long, fraught time for fans. And by the time we get new episodes it will be close to two years since Season 3 last premiered. But as they say, good things come to those who wait, and especially to those who fight for what they love. So welcome back, show. Can’t wait to see you. Happy weekend, all and Earpers.
