The shock we feel at the cancellation of Wynonna Earp isn’t something that’s going to go away anytime soon. It’s been our home for four seasons and that’s not easy to shake off. For many, they’ve met friends and family through Wynonna Earp. For others, they’ve found a sense of community and like they were being seen for the first time in their lives via Wynonna Earp. Whatever brought you into this show and the changes it’s made in your life, just know it’s not over.
This isn’t us saying that we’re gearing up for a campaign to save Wynonna Earp. There are plenty of people already fighting for it and we’ll support them all the way through. This is us saying that just because Wynonna Earp‘s journey is (possibly) over doesn’t mean that everything it did for us is cancelled or erased. No one can take away the hours spent watching, the lessons learned, or the laughs had. Those are ours and they always will be.
Was this show perfect? No. Did it have its ups and downs? Absolutely. No show is without faults, yet we love them anyway for what they’ve done along the way. And that’s what we must hold onto when it comes to Wynonna Earp; that sense that if they can do it, so can we. And we can, especially if it means creating LGBTQ relationships like Wayhaught to our screens again. No matter how small a creator or how crazy your idea is, Wynonna Earp has given us and people the creative hope to make the queer crazy goodness of their hearts desire because if it could happen once, it could happen again!
That’s what we mean when we say that this isn’t over. Wynonna Earp changed us, opened us up to new experiences, and paved the way for the next generation of creators. A cancellation is devastating; especially when you think about the jobs lost during such a difficult time. But a cancellation is also not the end of the dreams made because of this show, the lives changed because of this show, or the great creative projects that are going to be made after this show.
And it’s all thanks to Beau Smith, who created Wynonna Earp. It’s all thanks to Emily Andras, who brought Wynonna Earp to our screens. It’s all thanks to Melanie Scrofano, Dominique Provost-Chalkley, Tim Rozon, Katherine Barrell, Varun Saranga, Shamier Anderson, Greg Lawson, Michael Eklund, Chantel Riley, Dani Kind, and so many more talented actors. And it’s all thanks to the staff, crew mates, executive producers, directors, and every single person who put their time into making Wynonna Earp.
It’s all thanks to them and they, or this show, will never be forgotten. It will be celebrating for the creative genius it is and pave the road for more.
