Just heard, right from Colin himself – Colin Ferguson, who played Sheriff Jack Carter on Eureka, is returning to Syfy – this time on Haven, joining the cast for Season 4!
Ferguson will play William, a handsome mysterious stranger, whose secret agenda leads him to Audrey (Emily Rose).
Season 4 begins production today in Halifax, Nova Scotia. It picks up six months after the devastating events of the Season 3 cliffhanger in which the town was pummeled by a violent meteor storm. Audrey and Duke (Eric Balfour) vanished into thin air leaving an injured Nathan (Lucas Bryant) marooned in Haven. The 13-episode season will debut on Syfy in October.
During its third season, Haven averaged 2.3 million total viewers, 1.1 million Adults 25-54 and 901,000 Adults 18-49. It was the #1 cable drama during its Friday night at 10 PM timeslot (based on Live + 7 data) in Adults 18-49, Adults 25-54 and total viewers.
Ferguson’s many feature film credits include Because I Said So, Rowing Through and The Opposite of Sex. He has also starred in a number of movies for television and was a regular on the NBC remake of the hit British comedy series Coupling and the sitcom Then Came You. His many guest-starring roles include CSI, Malcolm in the Middle, Crossing Jordan and Becker.
Here are some of the big and our favorite stories we covered in 2012…
Happy Birthday, Syfy! On Monday, December 10 at 9PM (ET/PT), the Channel will celebrate two decades of award-winning, imaginative entertainment programming during the star-studded Syfy 20th Anniversary Special.
From iconic series such as Farscape, Battlestar Galactica and Warehouse 13 to Ghost Hunters, Face Off and the upcoming transmedia experience Defiance, the special will look back on Syfy’s launch and evolution, and ahead to the future through the personal, behind-the-scenes insights of the creative talent themselves.
Said Dave Howe, President, Syfy & Chiller: “For 20 years, Syfy has been the leader in visionary and provocative entertainment programming. In this celebratory special, the extraordinary talent at the heart of the powerful Syfy brand will talk exclusively about the lasting impact Syfy has had on the media landscape for the last two decades.”
The episode may be called “Just Another Day”, But I’m sure it will hardly be one, as we bid farewell to the residents of the town of Eureka, and the characters we’ve come to love over five years. Let’s hope this isn’t the absolute last we see or hear of Jack, Fargo, Henry, Allison, Zane, Vincent, Holly, Isaac and the rest…
In the series finale, airing on Syfy next Monday at 9/8c, wormholes start popping up all over, threatening to rip Eureka apart unless Carter can stop them. Catch the preview below…
