CONFIRMED: Haven Season Three Return Date Announced

Even though it’s not one of our favorite shows (convince us, ‘Tastic fans!), we know a lot of you are fans of the SyFy series Haven, and have been looking forward to news about a return date for season three for some time, now (and non-stop hammering us about it).

Well, as the result of another question on another one of our pieces we actually came across a couple of sites online claiming a return date of September 21st, but we weren’t able to find a press release announcing that… until we dug a little deeper.

It just so happens that two days ago SyFy actually did announce the return date offically but they buried it in a press release about a special guest appearance by Iain Glen (Game of ThronesDownton Abbey) which is why it went under our radar.

Via Press Release:

IAIN GLEN (GAME OF THRONES, DOWNTON ABBEY) WILL SEEK REVENGE DURING GUEST APPEARANCE ON SYFY’S POPULAR SERIES HAVEN

NEW YORK – July 11, 2012 – Iain Glen (Game of Thrones, Downton Abbey) will portray a troubled man bent on vengeance during the upcoming third season of Syfy’s popular series Haven, which returns Friday, September 21 at 10PM (ET/PT).

Glen guest stars as Roland Holloway – a refined yet bitter man who has been trapped inside his house for more than 27 years – in the series’ sixth episode on Friday, October 26 at 10PM (ET/PT).

Season three of Haven picks up immediately following the events of the gripping season two finale with Audrey (Emily Rose) having been brutally kidnapped; Nathan (Lucas Bryant) warned against pursuing a romantic relationship with Audrey; and Duke (Eric Balfour) seemingly engaged in a fight to the death with Nathan after he discovers his family lineage is to kill Haven citizens with troubles.

Haven, based on the novella The Colorado Kid from renowned author Stephen King, follows former FBI agent Audrey Parker, who becomes a cop in the small town of Haven, Maine, and soon discovers the town’s many secrets, which also hold the key to unlocking the mysteries of her lost past.

From leading independent studio Entertainment One (eOne), Haven is co-commissioned by Shaw Media in Canada and globally via Universal Networks International (UNI).

The creative team behind Haven includes executive producers John Morayniss (The Firm, Hell on Wheels) from eOne Television and David MacLeod (Legends of the Fall, The Ray Bradbury Theater) of Big Motion Pictures, who are joined by Lloyd Segan, Shawn Piller, Scott Shepherd (Stephen King’s The Dead Zone, Greek) of Piller/Segan/Shepherd and Matt McGuinness (Journeyman, Dark Blue) as well as Sam Ernst & Jim Dunn (Stephen King’s The Dead Zone), who also developed the series.

Haven is produced by Entertainment One and Big Motion Pictures in association with Piller/Segan/Shepherd and airs on Syfy in the U.S., Showcase in Canada and internationally on Universal Networks International’s channels. Entertainment One controls the worldwide distribution rights to the one-hour series and concluded a deal with Germany’s Tele München Group (TMG) for the television rights in Continental Europe.
