Wynonna Earp is back. The fantasy horror show that gained a queer woman cult following ended in 2021, but thanks to creator Emily Andras, we can expect a 90-minute Wynnona Earp special later this year.

The show will air on Tubi and Melanie Scrofano will again play Wynonna Earp, as will Dom Provost-Chalkley her sister. Tim Rozon, Katherine Barrell, Doc Holliday, Nicole Haught are expected to be involved as well.
The 90-minute special will be titled Wynonna Earp: Vengeance and will pick up a few years after the last episode ended. When the last season of Wynonna Earp ended, fans were distraught, but Andras remained hopeful that Earp’s story might continue one day.
“I’d like to thank our wonderful cast and crew, all of whom were instrumental in bringing Wynonna Earp to our loyal and passionate audience,” she said at the conclusion of season 4. “We couldn’t be prouder of these last six episodes on SYFY, and are thrilled to share them with our beloved fans, who have changed our lives forever. I have been honored to tell Wynonna and her family’s story, and along with Seven24, Cineflix and CTV Sci-Fi, are hopeful we can continue to share their inspiring tales in the future.”
“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,” Andras told Vanity Fair. “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.”
Wynonna Earp fans, AKA Earpers, are a hardcore fanbase. They started #SaveWynonna hashtag in 2019 when the COVID threatened the show’s fourth season. When a fourth season was approved, fans stormed Times Square to celebrate.
