When Wynonna Earp’s fourth season premieres this Sunday night (July 26) on Bell Sci-Fi, it marks the end of a nearly two-year hiatus for the scrappy little supernatural Western. The series, which stars Melanie Scrofano as its hard-drinking, monster-hunting hero, survived a year in limbo due to financing snarls.

Season 4 went into production in Calgary last fall, only to have to shut down in March when COVID-19 rolled across Canada.

Alberta has since reopened, so production of the back half was able to resume last week…which meant Scrofano, showrunner Emily Andras and a few other key cast and production personnel had to travel from Toronto to Calgary, and land in a place where things seem a lot more normal.
