"Wynonna Earp" Season 1 Spoilers Ahead
"Wynonna Earp" season 1 ended with a massive cliffhanger last Friday, June 24, and fans cannot wait to see how Waverly's (Dominique Provost-Chalkley) new persona affects her sister. Syfy is yet to renew the show for a new season, but considering the show's popularity and its potential, you can rest assured that Season 2 is happening.
In the Season 1 finale, fans saw Wynonna (Melanie Scrofano) embrace her responsibility as the heir of the Peacemaker and dispatch Bobo (Michael Eklund). However, she now has a demonic version of Waverly to deal with.
In the series finale, we saw Waverly touching a black goo puddle and get possessed by something. She pulls a gun out, the lights go off and we hear a gun shot in the distance. Literally, that exact moment is where the episode ended, making it possible one of the greatest cliffhangers in history.
Since Syfy has a habit of taking a year's gap between seasons, we are almost certain that Season 2 is that far away. Based on Season 1, "Wynonna Earp" might premiere Season 2 on Friday, March 31, 2017.
The show has been successful in creating nuanced characters that fans can relate to, even if the theme and story is fantasy fiction. In fact, you could even call "Wynonna Earp" the "Buffy The Vampire Slayer" of today's time. Much like "Buffy," which was the one show from early 2000s that queer women related to, "Wynonna" Earp" also subtly addresses gender and identity issues, without deviating from the main topic of killing revenants, or slaying vampires in Buffy's case.
In fact, a crossover between the two beloved shows is something many fans want to see. It seems like the showrunners want the same thing.
"I would love to see Buffy at the age she would be now, so like 40 years old, late 30s, well past high school. I would love for her to land in purgatory and have to team up -- team up with Wynonna Earp. That, to me, would be the ultimate. So if you could ask Joss Whedon and he's cool with that. Not sure he is going to be super cool with it but that would be -- that would be my fan girl dream," SpoilerTV quotes show's creator Emily Andras as saying.
"...we could do a training scene like she did with Dolls but with Buffy. That would be amazing," adds Scorfano.
Now all we need to do is flood Whedon's social media with requests for a crossover.
