SyFy Renews Haven for Season 3

Get ready to see more of Audrey! Or Lucy. Or Sarah. Or whoever she is these days. Syfy has ordered a third season of Haven, its Friday-night staple. Season 2 ended earlier this month and averaged a solid 2.55 million viewers; though the show flies a bit under-the-radar since it airs on party night, it's quietly assembled a loyal audience.

Haven—which is based on Stephen King's The Colorado Kid and is set in a small town in Maine—follows a cop who harbors a lot of secrets. Emily Rose, Eric Balfour, and Lucas Bryant all star.

A holiday episode of Haven, "Silent Night," is scheduled for December 6. Season 3 is expected to return for 13 episodes in the summer of 2012.

I've really become enamored of Haven and love the plot lines and characters. I've never read the books but this series has definitely gotten and held my attention. The small Maine, although not really Maine, fishing village backdrop also makes it very appealing to me. So glad to hear they are doing a new season.

The american audience should know that Haven and so many other shows are watched all over Europe and the f....g nielsen box scrued a lot of people here. So many decent shows have been cancelled bacause of the total ignorance of the american people..........

The American people aren't ignurnt! Why else would Syfy air great classics that have stood the test of time? Like Piranhaconda and Supergator? Clearly, the American people are the product of an excellent educational system and a refined culture! Pass me the pate' and foie-gras!

"...ignorance of the american people..." lol



About 25,000 American households participate in the Nielsen ratings system out of an approximate 114,500,000 total American households with televisions (0.02183% of the total). It's a flawed system. Blame the system, and those that make their decisions based off it, instead of the "ignorant american" people (we've been "scrued" out of some good shows as well).



Glad to hear that Haven is back though.

Not to mention that you have to be in the same place for at least 6 years to get one of their diaries, so that rules out most younger people.

I was reading about how Nielsen isn't honestly reporting the ratings. They are hugely inaccurate, but even so who is to say they are honest? No one is there to compete with them, and thats a shame, because I read that they take money to make certain shows look better, and certain shows look worse. of course it may not be true, but a lot of money changes hands, and a lot of jobs depend on their findings, and they are accountable to no one.

I love Haven, I`m so glad they renewed it! The finale was great, and it would`ve sucked if they left things hanging like that

eXCELLENMT NEWS, Thanks SYFY - I just hope the christmas episode doesn't follow in the footsteps of last year's WH13 christmas episode and ignore the season storyline.

While I also appreciate continuity, getting an extra episode later in the year during the drought season, even if it is a standlone non-canon type of episode is better than nothing =)

YES! I couldn't believe a few commenters on the Season 2 finale review forum said they didn't want Haven to be renewed. It's a great show, and I will definitely be tuning in for season 3. I also don't understand why some people think Audrey and Duke have all this chemistry, and actually believe that they will end up together. She's MEANT to be with Nathan. I mean, come on. A man who can't feel anything, with the sole exception of one woman's touch. It's damn near Shakespearean.



Prediction: We've known her as Sara, Lucy, and Audrey. When we see her again, I think she'll have a new name and a new fake identity. You know what this means? Poor Nathan.

I thought you'd like that!



Honestly, Season 2 ended on a very strong note. So it would have been really dumb to cancel this show.... then again we are talking about The Sy Fy (not sci-fi, mind you!) channel.



And it's definitely Nathan & Audrey. This particular love triangle reminds me of Lost; when people were saying Kate would end up with Sawyer (the bad boy, like Duke), when it was SO CLEAR it was gonna be Jack.

There's also suppose to be holiday episodes for Warehouse 13 and Eureka. If the Warehouse 13 episode is anything like last year it will be a little outside the storyline.
Reply

They both will be "outside-the-storyline" type episodes...

Awesome news. Emily Rose is really good and Eric Balfour has finally found a role and a show he can't kill; Duke is a great character whose relationship with Audrey is one of the best parts of this show. Despite it borrowing its cliffhanger ending from other shows it still has me completely invested in finding out what went down. I'd love to see what King's impression of this show is. So many critics immediately dismissed this show when it premiered yet I never understood the criticism and am glad this cast and crew can tell all those folks that bashed it to suck it.
