'Haven' Cancelled: Syfy Give Series the Ax, Will Finale Satisfy? [VIDEO]
It is the beginning of the end for Haven. After five seasons, Syfy has cancelled the Troubled series.
Haven will return for season 5B this October, but the midseason premiere will be the series last. Duke (Eric Balfour), Audrey (Emily Rose), and Nathan (Lucas Bryant) will have 13 episodes to wrap up their tale.
Luckily, Haven's writers have cooked up an ending that will leave fans satisfied.
"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," showrunner Gabrielle Stanton told The Wrap. "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?"
There will, however, be a small cliffhanger since the series finished filming over six months before Syfy handed down it's final decision. Haven's time on television is over, but that doesn't mean the Stephen King adaptation can't continue in another medium.
"Very sad news about #Haven - but we knew it was probably coming," writer Brian Millikin said on Tuesday. "That said, you never know if there might be life for it elsewhere."
Catch the final episodes of Haven when the series premieres on Oct. 8 at 10 p.m. ET.
