haven-syfy-cancelledDescription: Syfy’s one-hour drama series Haven, starring Emily Rose is based on the novella The Colorado Kid from renowned author Stephen King. The series follows the shrewd and confident FBI agent Audrey Parker (Rose) as she arrives in the small town of Haven, Maine on a routine case. Before long, her natural curiosity lands her in the epicenter of activity in this curious enclave, which turns out to be a longtime refuge for people that are affected by a range of supernatural afflictions. The truth about Audrey’s mysterious past (which she can’t fully remember) starts to come out as well.  As the townspeople’s dormant abilities begin to express themselves, Audrey helps keep these forces at bay while discovering the many secrets of Haven — including one surrounding her own surprising connections to this extraordinary place.

Why Was It Cancelled? The cancellation announcement for this show did not come as a huge surprise because of its declining ratings and the fact that it was the last series hanging on from the early Syfy rebranding days. With all the development that the network currently has in the pipeline, apparently they decided not to funnel anymore to this show which was part of an era they are currently trying to step away from.  Series showrunner Gabrielle Stanton did promise that the last thirteen episodes (which will begin airing on October 8th) will provide a satisfying resolution for the fans, though they also left it open-ended for a possible continuation:

We approached as if it was going to be our final season, so we were ready for it story-wise. But you never know. If a million people watch, maybe we can do something about that… But we had an idea that it might be [the final season]. I’m sure as a fellow TV fan, there’s nothing more annoying than when a show kind of feels like it might be wrapping up, but they just don’t address it, they don’t come to any kind of satisfying conclusion. I always think that’s cheating the audience a little bit, of a nice satisfying ending. So we really looked at these 13 episodes as if… If we were indeed going to end, what would be the best ending we could possibly do for Haven? (You can read the full interview with Stanton at this link.)

When the show’s fifth season concludes, it will have 78 episodes which is a decent number for a syndication run, but another season or so would make it even more attractive in that market.  Since Haven does have a very vocal fanbase, they will almost certainly mount an effort to keep the show alive.

    Please do not cancel Haven! It is one of the most interesting shows and has great actors and actresses with a great storyline that keeps audiences at the edge of their seat. The characters are great and work very well together. Right now, it is not on at the same time consistently, so people don’t know when to watch and Friday night so early isn’t a great time for many people. The number of viewers would increase if it was shown at the same time, probably during the work week, every week. People have to know when their shows are on so it becomes a habit. I think some people “give up” when it changes around, especially to a time when another favorite show may be on! It truly is a great show!

    Please don’t cancel Haven. Give this excellent show a great time slot and leave it there. Do some promoting. It’s hard to find original shows that keep you glued. The chemistry between the actors is off the chart.

    I have all the seasons saved on my DVR. I won’t miss a single episode even Fri at 7. But moving it to Fri was intentional to kill the show. Not advertising it much, especially on other cable channels, was another blow. Fall ratings would have been better if more people knew it was on. I’m not interested in checking out other shows on SciFi without Haven. Why should I?

    I am such a fan of Haven. I is one of the best series on Syfy. I agree with others, moving the show to 7 PM Eastern time was a bad move. Little to no advertisement was poor planning. Please bring it back.

      Syfy still hasn’t announced a return date, but I am assuming it will be back in Fall.

    Was really hoping to see the next season of Haven. Always looked forward to watching this every week or catching up on demand if I couldn’t make the 7 pm.

    Our whole family and our friends enjoy watching this show, and we enjoy Syfy. We would be terribly disappointed if you cancel it, and even more disappointed with Syfy for not renewing it. We truly hope you will make the right choice; which is to renew this great original show. Thank you

    Haven is that one diamond in the rough. It’s different and special from any other show I’ve ever watched in my life. It has such a unique concept that no other show has. It would be a great loss to Syfi if they officially cancelled Haven, my whole family loves this show and we are getting more and more people to watch and once they catch up they always ask wheres season 6, I have to tell them that this amazing show doesn’t have a season 6 and that it might be cancelled. Please bring back Haven it’s an amazing show!

      Too late. But the second half of the fifth season (which starts Oct 8th) is supposed to wrap up most of the major storylines.

    Don’t these networks and TV program producers communicate? The show ended on a cliff. Back in he “old days” (when nobody knew what they were doing) it was typical for this kind of thing to happen. Lets go SyFy..finish what you start.
    It sounds like nobody watches this network except for this show..anyway .OK and Z Nation.

    I have just watched the last episode of Haven and am very sad it is no more it was a refreshing type of show and it was just getting good. I loved the chemistry between all the cast members. I think the troubles gave the show alot of
    room for a story line to keep going.

    These damn TV studios make something great and then leave you with too many cliffhangers a good example is Haven. Unfortunately I did not get a chance to watch when it first aired and just found it on Netflix and had I come this show I could of and would of gladly helped the ratings by watching it ever week.

    They need to figure out another way to tell if people are watching a show. Shit to be honest I am into so many shows I forget about some, hard to keep track of them all.
    If they would bring back Haven I’d be in front of my TV watching it that’s for sure.

      I couldn’t agree with you more. I LOVE the show and I don’t understand WHY WHY WHY they cancel great shows all the time. I never heard of the show either until I found it on Netflix. They either don’t promote them or promote them enough. I would have LOVED to help with the ratings by watching it every week if I knew it was on TV. I’d love to know a way to let them know how we feel about it.

    I am SO UPSET that Haven has been cancelled because I LOVE that show. I have NEVER seen another show like it. I know I’m a little late in commenting about this, but I never thought about searching it on the internet. I just thought there would be another season. Can a show be uncancelled??? If it can, I hope they PLEASE BRING IT BACK!!!
