Wynonna Earp Season 4 Delayed

In case anyone was wondering why #FightforWynonna was trending yesterday, THR has confirmed reports that the studio (IDW) has delayed production for financial reasons. An air date was never officially announced, but was expected to be in mid-to-late summer, which would have required filming to start sometime around now. SyFy apparently only covers half the production costs, leaving IDW (which has had budget overruns on other projects) to try and recoup expenses via international distribution deals and take out loans. The network offered the following official statement,
SYFY ordered Season 4 of Wynonna Earp from IDW and is completely committed to the series. This has not changed.
UPDATE: IDW has released their own statement. Also, SyFy has offered additional funding and already granted a season 5 renewal (via Deadline)
IDW is committed to continuing to tell the Wynonna Earp story. Much like the fans, we are passionate about not only the series, but the comics, the characters and the overall message that the Wynonna Earp franchise carries. We are in the process of working out the details for how the Wynonna story will continue and will share new details very soon.
