Last week, Syfy premiered its new series, Wynonna Earp
, based on the comic series by Beau Smith. The show follows bad-ass demon-fighting Wynonna Earp (Melanie Scrofano), as she tries to stop the Revenants, who are resurrected criminals previously killed by her ancestor Wyatt. She is helped by her sister Waverly (Dominique Provost-Chalkley), her new boss Agent Dolls (Shamier Anderson), and Wyatt's immortal best friend Doc Holliday (Tim Rozon).
Comic creator Smith, showrunner Emily Andras, along with stars Scrofano, Provost-Chalkley, and Rozon, recently talked to the media about the new series.
First, the showrunner and comic creator talked about adapting Wynonna Earp
to a television series.
According to Smith, “This marks 20 years that Wynonna Earp
’s been a publication, and when we knew that this was actually going to be a television series, my decision was, this is great, put me in contact with as much stuff as possible, and what I'll do with the new series is make this a hybrid of the television series and what people traditionally have with the comic book series.
