10 Shows Like ‘Wynonna Earp’ to Watch During the Series' Season 4 Hiatus

Updated

Not many television shows have fans devoted enough to buy a Times Square billboard to save the show, but Wynonna Earp’s legion of “Earpers” are a force to be reckoned with!

Wynonna Earp follows the titular character (played by Melanie Scrofano) as she returns to the town of Purgatory and battles the “revenant” versions of the outlaws killed by her great-great-grandfather, legendary lawman Wyatt Earp.

In August, dedicated Wynonna Earp fans were faced with an inconvenient midseason hiatus. That's because production on the show’s fourth season finally got going in January after IDW Entertainment found financial partners — but then cast and crew didn’t have time to finish filming the season before the coronavirus crisis shut down production. So the show is airing a midseason finale on Sunday, Aug. 30.

Luckily for you, there are tons of similar shows to watch, including the selections below.

‘Buffy the Vampire Slayer’
