Syfy renews ‘Haven’

Cabler orders 13 new episodes

Syfy’s supernatural drama “Haven” will return to the net for a third season in 2012.

The net has ordered a further 13 hourlong segs of the series, which is based on Stephen King’s novella “The Colorado Kid” and set in a small Maine town filled with supernatural secrets.

The series averaged nearly 1 million 18- to 49-year-old viewers per episode during season two, with 1.14 million in the 25 to 54 demo and 2.55 million total viewers (including people who watched the show on DVR up to seven days after broadcast).

Q3 of 2011 was a remarkably good quarter for scripted series on Syfy: “Haven,” “Alphas,” “Warehouse 13” and “Eureka” (which heads into its final season next year on the NBCUniversal network) all broke the 2.5 million mark in total viewers. The high performance gave Syfy its most-watched Q3 in the cabler’s 19-year history, with an 8% year-on-year boost in the 18-49 demo.

“Haven” is produced by Entertainment One, which controls worldwide distrib, and Big Motion Pictures in association with Piller/Segan/Shepherd. The show is co-commissioned by Canadian shingle Shaw Media and Universal Networks International.
