Syfy on Friday decided to pre-empt the penultimate episode of drama Haven‘s third season, which had been scheduled for that night, after the deadly shooting at Connecticut’s Sandy Hook Elementary School that claimed the lives of 26 people, including 20 first-graders. Now the episode has been rescheduled, along with the show’s Season 3 finale. Here is the network’s statement:

Last Friday’s 10PM episode of Haven contained scenes of fictitious violence in a high school setting and in light of the recent tragedy, we have decided to reschedule it along with the series’ season three finale, originally slated to air this Friday, December 21st at 10PM.  The final two episodes of season three of Haven will now air back-to-back on Thursday, January 17th from 8-10 PM (ET/PT) to maintain the integrity of the series’ serialized nature.
