Syfy’s Stephen King inspired series ‘Haven’ is to draw to a conclusion after five dramatically supernatural seasons.
The second half of the final series is due to premier on the exclusive cable channel in October.
The cable network has axed the sci-fi series after five seasons, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
The news comes just a year after the drama, which stars Emily Rose, Lucas Bryant and Eric Balfour, earned a supersized season five renewal for 26 episodes — double the normal 13 installments. The second half of season five is set to bow in October.
The series was loosely based on Stephen Kings short story ‘The Colorado Kid’. The series centred on the strange events of a small Maine town. Adapted for the screen by Sam Ernst and Jim Dunn, the duo exec produced the E1 Entertainment series with Scott Shepherd, Lloyd Segan, Shawn Piller as well as E1 Entertainment’s John Morayniss, Noreen Halpern, Laszlo Barna and Michael Rosenberg.
Syfy’s decision to cancel the series comes as no surprise given the recent shift in the cable channels direction in favor of edgier science fiction drama’s like the recent ’12 Monkeys’.
All that said though. There will be a lot of fans that will mourn the loss of ‘Haven’, which has been a mainstay on the channel for five seasons, which is a pretty impressive innings for a Syfy original series.
