It’s not a huge surprise, but Syfy confirmed this morning that it has cancelled Haven and the upcoming season 5b (or 6, pick your poison) will be its last. The good news is we still have 13 episodes to enjoy straight through the end of the year, beginning Thursday, October 8th, at 10/9c.

The better news is that the cast and crew, who wrapped production last December, are now officially released to pursue other projects.

Haven executive producer and creator Shawn Piller has already banked his next series, directing episodes of the upcoming The Art of More, set to air on new network Crackle. You can see his behind the scenes pics on his Instagram feed.

According to IMDb, Lucas Bryant and Emily Rose have already worked together again on a family film for PiXL called Secret Summer, which I’m assuming could also end up on Hallmark Channel because it’s a Larry Levinson production and they sometimes timeshare movies, with PiXL getting the first window. Eric Balfour is at work on a few things, and Adam Copeland has booked The Flash.

This is all great news–we won’t have to wait long to see them again after Haven wraps up!

The best news is that the showrunners had time to plan out their arc. We asked Gabrielle Stanton about that last November when we had our last Haven press call, and this is what she said:

“We are writing to the idea that it’s going to be a huge awesome finale and that if we do not get another season, the fans will feel satisfied and feel like it was a great ending to a series. But if we are fortunate enough to be able to continue then it will be just another one of our incredible cliffhanger seasons and it will be able to ramp right back up for the next season.”

We’re sad to say goodbye to one of our (original) TV Goodness favorites, but very glad the news came when we still have new episodes ahead. Here’s a sneak peek of the October return of Haven.
