    great news. i was worried there would be nothing but wrestling on sy-not-fy…

  • DeeAgeaux

    Since “The Hunter” is coming in 39 days or so many thought this would be the last season for Haven. Guess not.

  • John A

    Great news. Deserved since it does well. This must mean crap Alphas is dead.

  • The End

    And I was absolutely correct in saying Haven would be back.

  • Jared

    Although I’m not a fan of the show..im happy for the fans of Haven who have been worried about its ratings all season.

  • Julie

    This is very good news at our house!

  • The End

    @John A

    Indeed. I had Haven and Warehouse 13 down as being sure thing renewals. Just waiting on the other one now.

    If anything I got tired of discussing it with people, as some were quite unpleasant when they don’t get the kind of information they were expecting.

  • SloBurn

    Great news… here’s hoping for another great season!!!

  • John A

    @The End I wasnt that sure of Haven. It pulled 2 0.3 which was alarming. Anyway im glad its coming back.

  • Barb

    Good news. Only started watching this season and is now on my regular viewing list.

  • John A

    @The End like any show Alphas has its crazy fans that hope its renewed. Best to ignore them.

  • The End

    @John A

    Well said, and I agree with you. That said I was pretty much aware the show was dead for a while, although people always aim questions at the Syfy twitter, only to receive a response like this for example.

    >A) The decision to renew any show usually hinges on, are the ratings sufficient to sustain the series? Close calls r always most difficult.

    What does this tell you? Haven was there pretty much for renewal, Warehouse 13 is almost there, the only scripted show doing dreadfully on the network was Alphas. Haven has proven to be a sustainable series on the network, the numbers time and time again have proven to be good. Alphas however has dropped, dropped, and dropped some more.

    You could guess pretty much which shows are dead to the letter on the network from that alone.

  • Wright

    Great!!! I love this show.

  • oneleggedjim

    About time. It does a lot with a small budget and limit locations.

  • DonnaT

    Great news! I’m not ready to say goodbye to the great cast that plays Audrey Parker, Nathan or Duke so soon as I’m fairly certain S3 will end on another cliffy.

    I’m still mourning the tease about S6 of Eureka but I was reasonably satisfied with the ending. I’m pretty so- so about W13 because I love some characters and dislike others and I positively loathe Alphas. I like Lost Girl, too, but I don’t know that that Syfy has picked it up for S3 yet (I haven’t kept up to date on the SyFy channel news.)

  • Serial Rocker

    I don’t get the Alphas hate. It’s not a bad little show and has managed to make a reasonable effort in adapting an X-Men like story to the small screen. Way better than previous attempts such as Mutant X ever did anyway. Quality wise it’s head and shoulders above Warehouse 13, and I’m a fan of both. I doubt we’ll see a season three but I can’t understand why so many people seem to want to attack the show.

    Great news about Haven though.

  • Elaine

    Thank you SyFy!

  • Fake Me Out

  • cimmer

    I wonder how much of Haven’s numbers are dependent on wrestling being its lead? What I mean is that most shows on Friday after wrestling have pulled around 0.4-0.5 for Syfy. I don’t know whether wrestling helps or has no effect. I’d be more interested in knowing whether there’s a large enough group of viewers on Friday who ‘hop’ from Grimm to Fringe (some dvring involved of course) to Haven, in effect making their own 3 hour ‘block’ of supernatural TV?
