NEW YORK – May 18, 2012 – Dorian Missick (Southland, The Cape) and Kate Kelton (Harold and Kumar, American Psycho 2) will join the cast of Syfy’s popular series Haven in recurring roles when the show returns for its third season beginning Friday, September 21 at 10PM (ET/PT).

Kelton portrays the spirited and fierce “Jordan McKee.” She’s a waitress at “The Gun & Rose Diner,” and also an influential member of a mysterious organization of “troubled” people whose identity is known by the distinctive tattoo marking its members.

Missick plays “Tommy Bowen,” a street smart Boston detective who comes to Haven investigating a suspected serial killer case. A shrewd, calculating policeman, he’s also a fish out of water, completely mismatched with this L.L. Bean world.

Season three of Haven picks up immediately following the events of the gripping season two finale with Audrey having been brutally kidnapped; Nathan (Lucas Bryant) warned against pursuing a romantic relationship with Audrey; and Duke (Eric Balfour) seemingly engaged in a fight to the death with Nathan after he discovers his family lineage is to kill Haven citizens with troubles.

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 hold 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.

    Another brilliant move by SyFy — forcing a break between seasons that’s over a year long. Wonderful.

    It looks like this show is taking the spot formerly held by Sanctuary.

  • Simon Jester

    @TheOriginalJ – I suspect it’s more the case that Lost Girl is taking Haven‘s Friday timeslot until the fall. As for waiting two more months — boo hoo. Those of us who watch Mad Men or Breaking Bad know what a long hiatus really is! :-P

  • USAmerica1st

    Big moves on Haven. First, they added Bree Williamson of Gossip Girl as psychiatrist Dr. Claire Callahan and now Dorian from The Cape and Tit Tac girl Kate. Should be very interesting. Nice series run, Haven!

  • The End

    @The Original J

    Technically about 9 months, if you consider the Christmas special as a part of Season 2.

    I agree with this show airing later, it stands a better chance to be honest of being renewed this way.

  • The End

    That said, I did correctly say when a few shows airing on the network would be renewed. And correctly said the week Warehouse 13 would be renewed on based on the numbers it was getting.

    i guess haven airing in the fall this year makes the production a little bit easier. but the reason why it’s not going to air this summer is because lost girl is airing the remaining episodes of the season since the show received a full episode order by showcase last year before syfy picked up rights to air the earlier seasons.

  • Jonas

    I don’t like this ‘airing in September thing’ either, but for merely personal reasons. 85% of the shows I watch start in the fall, and I prefer not to lose one to my summer line up.

    Is there news on any new summer shows arriving? (particularly scripted ones)

  • USAmerica1st

    One more thing, hopefully they’ll leave it on Fridays.

  • Emma

    I’m with Jonas. I can understand why they’re choosing to air it in the fall, but I don’t like it. Now I have no summer shows! Absolutely none. Once Game of Thrones season two finishes in June, I’ll have nothing to tide me over till the approximately one million shows I watch return in September.

  • Tom

    At least Haven is coming back. And it looks like they might be investing a bit more money in the show. Compared to Sanctuary and WH 13, the program has had kind of a low budget feel to it. Great writing but not much in the way of special effects or sets. I’d like to see this program stay on for at least two more seasons, so let’s hope that the new cast members help to generate more viewer interest.

  • BJH

    Maybe there’s more money to go around now that Eureka’s ending. I don’t know show budgets, but that one seemed like it had a high one. I’m saddened that Haven’s not back until September, but at least it’s renewed! That’s more than I can say for Sanctuary. I hope they make an announcement soon (at least to just let the fans either jump for joy or wallow in sadness). All this waiting is unsettling…

  • Beverly

    I am so happy it is renewed for Season 3, just wish I didn’t have to wait till Sept. Oh, the anticipation.
