Haven is one series which just keeps getting better and more interesting as it goes along – and fans and the Syfy channel agree about the series, apparently, since it has been picked up for a fourth season. The show seems to be headed for a big finish in the season three finale and fans will be glad to know that the show will be back next year, as has just been announced by Mark Stern, Syfy’s president of original content and co-head of original content for Universal Cable Productions.
The current season has seen Haven with its largest viewership to date, with an average of 1.2 million viewers in the 25 – 54 demographic, 5% over season two’s numbers. The third season has averaged 2.4 million total viewers, with 942,000 of these viewers in the 18 – 49 demographic. The season premiere of season three drew a total of 2.8 million viewers, up 10% from the season two premiere and a record for the series.
Mark Stern has said that everyone at Syfy is thrilled to see Audrey Parker and the decidedly odd denizens of Haven return for another season. He added that season three has won praise from critics and fans alike and expressed admiration for the production team and the show’s cast, particularly its stars, Emily Rose, Lucas Bryant and Eric Balfour.
Based on Stephen King’s The Colorado Kid, Haven follows Audrey Parker, a former FBI agent who becomes a police officer in the town of Haven, ME. She soon begins to uncover the many secrets that this small town has been carefully guarding – and that these secrets are tied into her own mysterious past. In the current season, her backstory has started coming to light and fans will get many answers to their questions in the leadup to what is expected to be a shocking season finale.
