Syfy doesn’t want anymore troubles, announcing it has canceled its original series Haven.
The series, starring Emily Rose, Lucas Bryant and Eric Balfour, was based on Stephen King’s The Colorado Kid novella. The show is set in the fictional town of Haven, Maine where the residents are plagued by supernatural events called ‘Troubles’.
Haven premiered on the network in 2010 and the first 13 episodes of show’s current fifth season aired in 2014.
Thankfully, the Haven powers-that-be were prepared for this season to be the show’s last. “I’m sure as a fellow TV fan, there’s nothing more annoying than when a show kind of feels like it might be wrapping up, but they just don’t address it, they don’t come to any kind of satisfying conclusion,” showrunner Gabrielle Stanton told TheWrap. “I always think that’s cheating the audience a little bit, of a nice satisfying ending. So we really looked at these 13 episodes as if… If we were indeed going to end, what would be the best ending we could possibly do for Haven?”
Stanton also told the site that she thinks fans will be satisfied with the season finale, that will now serve as a series finale. “We left it open but if it is the series finale, we think the fans will be satisfied. We didn’t want to leave it on a giant cliffhanger, just in case we didn’t come back. We didn’t want to leave fans going, “Wait a minute!” because I’ve seen shows do that, and as a viewer, it’s just so frustrating.”
The second half of Haven‘s fifth and final season is set to premiere Thursday, Oct. 8 at 10 p.m. ET on Syfy.
