More Secrets are About to Surface as Syfy’s Hit Series HAVEN Goes Into Production on its Third Season

Get ready to journey back to the small town where everyone has a secret when the Syfy hit series Haven goes into production on 13 new episodes of season three beginning April 18 in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

During its second season, Haven averaged 2.55 million total viewers, 995,000 Adults18-49, 1.14 million Adults 25-54 and a 1.9 HH rating, rising four percent among total viewers and five percent among Adults 18-49 compared to season one (Live +7 data).

Season three of Haven picks up immediately following the events of the gripping season two finale where Nathan (Lucas Bryant) was warned against pursuing a romantic relationship with Audrey (Emily Rose); Duke (Eric Balfour) learned his family legacy was to kill Haven citizens with troubles; Audrey went missing, and Nathan and Duke engaged in a seemingly deadly argument.

Haven, based on the novella The Colorado Kid from renowned author Stephen King, follows former FBI agent Audrey Parker, who becomes a cop in the small town of Haven, Maine, and soon discovers the town’s many secrets, which also holds the key to unlocking the mysteries of her lost past.

From leading independent studio Entertainment One (eOne), Haven is co-commissioned by Shaw Media in Canada and globally via Universal Networks International (UNI).

The creative team behind Haven includes executive producers John Morayniss (The Firm, Hell On Wheels) from eOne Television and David MacLeod (Legends of the Fall, The Ray Bradbury Theater) of Big Motion Pictures, who are joined by Lloyd Segan, Shawn Piller, Scott Shepherd (Stephen King’s The Dead Zone, Greek) of Piller/Segan/Shepherd and Matt McGuinness (Journeyman, Dark Blue) as well as Sam Ernst & Jim Dunn (Stephen King’s The Dead Zone), who also developed the series.

Haven is produced by Entertainment One and Big Motion Pictures in association with Piller/Segan/Shepherd and airs on Syfy in the U.S., Showcase in Canada and internationally on Universal Networks International’s channels. Entertainment One controls the worldwide distribution rights to the one-hour series and concluded a deal with Germany’s Tele München Group (TMG) for the television rights in Continental Europe.

Jason Priestley Charms Syfy’s Popular Series HAVEN – Joins Cast in Recurring Role

Jason Priestley (who stars in, directs and is a producer on the international hit dark comedy Call Me Fitz) will guest star in four episodes of Syfy‘s popular series Haven, as well as direct the September 9 program.

Priestley, who leaped to stardom in Beverly Hills, 90210, will appear in the August 5, August 12, August 19 and September 9 episodes at 10PM (ET/PT).

In Haven, Priestley plays Chris Weekly, a handsome but anti-social marine biologist who is forced to deal with an affliction most would consider a blessing — everyone suddenly loves him and will do anything he wants. Only Audrey Parker (Emily Rose) seems unaffected by Weekly’s “charms.”

Haven also co-stars Eric Balfour as Duke Crocker.

Haven is based on The Colorado Kid from renowned author Stephen King and is currently in production in Nova Scotia. The Syfy original series from leading independent producer Entertainment One is co-commissioned by Shaw Media in Canada and globally via Universal Networks International (UNI).
