Melanie Scrofano returns as the titular gunslinging, demon-hunting heroine in S4 of SyFy's Wynonna Earp.

The SyFy series Wynonna Earp has trod a rocky road on the way to its fourth season, much to the frustration of its loyal fanbase ("Earpers"). First, the start of S4 production was delayed until late 2019, due to financial troubles at IDW Entertainment. Shooting finally commenced this past January in Alberta, Canada, and was nearly complete when the coronavirus pandemic led to the shutdown of all film and TV productions. Showrunner Emily Andres and her determined team have nonetheless managed to complete the season, and we now have the first trailer (uncensored, with colorful language fully intact), and an air date: July 26, 2020.

(Some spoilers for first three seasons below.)

The original comic book series created by Beau Smith in 1996 had Wynonna roaming the world hunting down revenants and other demons; the TV series mostly keeps her in her hometown of Purgatory (primarily for budgetary reasons). As I wrote when S3 wrapped way back in October 2018, Wynonna is the the Anti-Buffy: "She's a hard-drinking, foul-mouthed, promiscuous, bar-brawling free spirit with a chip on her shoulder. She never even had a shot at being Homecoming Queen in high school."

Instead of battling vampires, Wynonna (Melanie Scrofano) takes on "revenants," the repeatedly reincarnated outlaws that Wyatt Earp killed. They won't stay dead until the Earp heir—Wynonna—offs them with Wyatt's famous 16-inch barrel revolver, dubbed Peacemaker. She's also battled witches, vampires, vengeful spirits, nutty sister-wife cults, possessed neighbors, and killer trees, among other threats. She is not without allies, however, including the immortal being, Doc Holliday (Tim Rozon), with whom Wynonna becomes romantically entangled. Then there is her baby sister, Waverly (Dominique Provost-Chalkley), who falls for local deputy Nicole Haught (Katherine Barrell)—a popular pairing dubbed "Way-Haught" by shippers.

In the first season, Wynonna sought out the band of revenants responsible for the deaths of her father and sister, only to find her sister's fate was something quite different. In S2, she wrestled with her mother's mysterious abandonment of the family while contemplating her own impending motherhood, courtesy of Doc. At the same time, she discovers that Waverly might not be an Earp after all. In S3, we got some answers, as Wynonna discovers her mother, Michelle (Megan Follows) is a patient in a high-security psychiatric hospital, and Waverly—well, Waverly turns out to be half angel, thanks to Mama Earp's affair with an angel named Julian (Sebastian Pigott). Wynonna also finally had the chance to confront the demon Bulshar (Jean Marchand), the one who cursed the Earp family (and by extension the revenants) in the first place.
