Wynonna Earp Battles to End Her Family Curse in Season 3, Says EP Emily Andras

Wynonna Earp

There’s an old saying: Hell hath no fury like a woman protecting her daughter from a century-old hex.

Horror series Wynonna Earp returns for Season 3 six weeks after its titular hero (Melanie Scrofano) — the great-great-granddaughter of legendary lawman Wyatt Earp — sent her newborn, Alice, away from the town of Purgatory to keep her from the Earp curse. (It resurrects the people Wyatt killed over and over again!)

“If Wynonna doesn’t end the curse,” says creator Emily Andras, “Alice will grow up and have to take on 77 demons just as her mom had to.”

Defeating the evil spirit Bulshar (Jean Marchand) — who was Purgatory’s sheriff back in Wyatt’s day — could be the key to Wynonna’s goal. “There’s a sense of, ‘If we can get to this guy, maybe we can break the curse, since he’s the one who cast it,’” explains Andras, who notes that is easier said than done. “Bulshar is a challenge.”

Also on Wynonna’s agenda: dealing with the return of her long-gone mother (Megan Follows) and battling other menaces, including a group of glamorous Europeans who show up early on. Says Andras, “They’re loud, they’re proud… and they have very sharp incisors.”
