Syfy’s Haven Renewed

Haven on the Syfy Channel

If you found yourself engaged in the Stephen King based series on the Syfy Channel, Haven, rest assured you will be able to follow more of Audrey Parker’s indefinite leave from her FBI job or the local cop, Nathan Wuornos, as these two continually deal with the odd circumstances that take place around the town of Haven, ME.  (Though it’s filmed in Nova Scotia.)  Haven has been renewed for a second season.

For me Haven has lost it’s traction and I couldn’t seem to get back into it.  I’m not compelled to turn the channel to it unless I was watching its usual lead-in, Eureka.  Then maybe I would stick around.

I felt like Haven had an identity crisis.  Despite having a great show like Eureka as its lead-in, it was confusing to watch it right after Eureka.  Some of the problems of the episodes felt the same as Eureka but the source of the problems were magic and not science.  There were distinctly a few episodes I recall where the teaser event felt exactly like Eureka.  In one case, a huge metal ball rolling through town to run someone over…  just to name one example.

If it had more of its own personality I might have stuck around but as it stands, eh.  I don’t dislike it… it just doesn’t draw me in.  Maybe if I received the screeners and I got to watch it by itself with no confusion, I’d feel differently about it!  (Wow, that’s a blatant nudge!)


Haven, starring Emily Rose, is based on The Colorado Kid from renowned author Stephen King.  The series follows FBI agent Audrey Parker (Rose), who takes up residence in the small town of Haven, Maine and soon discovers the town’s many secrets.  A longtime refuge for people with an eclectic range of supernatural abilities, Haven also holds the key to unlocking the mysteries of Audrey’s lost past.  Among the townspeople are local cop Nathan Wuornos (Lucas Bryant) and the mysterious and charming Duke Crocker (Eric Balfour).

The creative team behind Haven includes showrunner Scott Shepherd (Tru Calling, The Dead Zone) as well as his partners, executive producers Lloyd Segan and Shawn Piller (The Dead Zone, Wildfire, Greek) who are joined by eOne’s John Morayniss (Hung, Rookie Blue) Noreen Halpern (Hung, Rookie Blue) and Laszlo Barna (The Bridge, Call Me Fitz).  The pilot was written by Sam Ernst & Jim Dunn (The Dead Zone) who also serve as executive producers on the series.
