Syfy has picked up drama Haven for a fourth season. Haven, based on Stephen King’s novella The Colorado Kid, has received a 13-episode order for a 2013 premiere. Gabrielle Stanton (Moonlight) has been tapped to run the series with exec producer Matt McGinnis after initially serving as a consulting producer.
Haven has been a successful acquisition for Syfy as the series ranks as the No. 1 cable program among adults 18-49 and adults 25-54 in its Friday 10-11 PM time period (in Live+7). The current third season is averaging 2.4 million total viewers and 942,000 adults 18-49. The September 21 Season 3 premiere drew 2.8 million total viewers, a series high and up 10% from the Season 2 premiere. Haven hails from Entertainment One, which greenlighted the project straight-to-series before shopping it to Syfy. Haven also is co-commissioned by Shaw Media in Canada and globally via Universal Networks International.
