(PCM) We were overjoyed to hear the news that Syfy will be renewing their breakout hit series “Wynonna Earp” for a third season set to premiere sometime in 2018.
The announcement was made during the show’s panel at San Diego Comic-Con, which was attended by cast members Melanie Scrofano, Shamier Anderson, Tim Rozon, Dominique Provost-Chalkley, Katherine Barrell, Varun Saranga, Tamara Duarte, along with showrunner and creator Emily Andras and comic book creator Beau Smith. Moderated by UPROXX’s Donna Dickens, the cast revealed behind-the-scenes antics and more details about the biggest hidden secret of the season – writing in Melanie Scrofano’s real-life pregnancy, which made Wynonna Earp the first pregnant superhero.
Die-hard Earpers got to see an exclusive trailer for the remainder of the season, and were surprised by the Season 3 renewal announcement made on stage by IDW Entertainment President, David Ozer.
We had a chance to catch up with Wynonna, herself, actress Melanie Scrofano while out at SDCC to chat about the upcoming new season, character development, and the shows incredibly devoted fan base.
When speaking about Wynonna’s one night stand, Scrofano says, “One of the ways that Wynonna deals with problems is drinking. It’s kind of beautiful really. She was in a really bad place and she just wanted to feel better. So, she just wanted to feel better so she ended up having a one night stand, but of course in purgatory you might want to check the background of the person you’re doing it with! She didn’t because she was wasted and “that guy”. It was really hard to watch though, because he really degrades her in that scene.”
When speaking with us about what she is surprised to learn about herself as an actress while playing this character Scrofano reveals, “It brings out a lot of insecurities. Playing this character is almost just like “go with it”! This character, she’s just a bit of a mess and I love just being able to be honest with that, for example, whatever I’m going through I can just put it into Wynonna.” She goes on to say it is “very liberating to be able to put your flaws on your sleeve and just be like ‘This is it! Take it or leave it!”
“Wynonna Earp” is currently airing Fridays at 10/9c on SYFY.
