Principal photography on the Syfy series Wynonna Earp has run into an unexpected delay.
IDW Entertainment, the company that produces the popular Syfy series, is currently seeking additional funding for the program and has pushed the start of filming to an unannounced date. Syfy licenses the series to IDW, who finances the cost of production in exchange for the rights to the show. Following Syfy's renewal order for a fourth season this past July, IDW is contractually obligated to fund the planned season.
"Syfy ordered season four of Wynonna Earp from IDW and is completely committed to the series," confirmed the network in a written statement to The Hollywood Reporter. "This has not changed."
IDW has seen some behind-the-scenes shuffling within the past year, including IDW President David Ozer leaving the company this past August and Editor-in-Chief and Chief Creative Officer Chris Ryall leaving this past March. Since his departure, Ryall has since been hired by the Image Comics imprint Skybound Entertainment.
Produced by SEVEN24 Films and IDW Entertainment, Wynonna Earp stars Melanie Scrofano as the title character, Shamier Anderson as Dolls, Dominique Provost-Chalkley as Waverly and Tim Rozon as Doc Holliday.
