Audrey and Nathan investigate the upheaval at the local psychiatric hospital, where something happened to make the patients normal for a time, but sent their doctors into madness.

Audrey remains in Haven to follow up on a clue to her own orphan past – an old photo from the local newspaper of the infamous “Colorado Kid” crime scene, which includes a woman who could be her mother.

The two must figure out what the connection could be, and what or who might be making them happen.

Haven, Syfy’s original series from leading independent producer Entertainment One (eOne), has been renewed for season two.  The 13-episode season will commence production on location in Nova Scotia in Spring 2011 with an eye towards a Summer 2011 premiere.

Haven, starring Emily Rose, is based on The Colorado Kid from renowned author Stephen King.  The series follows FBI agent Audrey Parker (Rose), who takes up residence in the small town of Haven, Maine and soon discovers the town’s many secrets.  A longtime refuge for people with an eclectic range of supernatural abilities, Haven also holds the key to unlocking the mysteries of Audrey’s lost past.  Among the townspeople are local cop Nathan Wuornos (Lucas Bryant) and the mysterious and charming Duke Crocker (Eric Balfour). 

The creative team behind Haven includes showrunner Scott Shepherd (Tru Calling, The Dead Zone) as well as his partners, executive producers Lloyd Segan and Shawn Piller (The Dead Zone, Wildfire, Greek) who are joined by eOne’s John Morayniss (Hung, Rookie Blue) Noreen Halpern (Hung, Rookie Blue) and Laszlo Barna (The Bridge, Call Me Fitz).  The pilot was written by Sam Ernst & Jim Dunn (The Dead Zone) who also serve as executive producers on the series. 

Haven is produced by Entertainment One in association with Piller, Segan and Shepherd and was the first property to be produced for Syfy globally: in the US with Syfy and globally through Universal Networks International (UNI), and Canwest in Canada.  Haven premiered on Syfy in the US on July 9, 2010 and will conclude its first season this Friday, October 8 @ 10pm.  It debuted on Canwest specialty channel Showcase in Canada on July 12, 2010 and has its global first run pay-TV window on UNI (excluding Canada and Scandinavia).  Universal Networks International will continue its global launch of Haven during October, rolling out Season One on Syfy Universal’s 19 global channels throughout the month.

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 free television rights in Continental Europe.

Since debuting this summer on Syfy, Haven has scored a 1.9 Household rating and 2.6 million total viewers, including over 1.2 million Adults 25-54 and 989,000 Adults 18-49.  These numbers are double the timeslot average from 3Q09 (+100% in HH rating, +111% in P2+).  In addition, Haven held 82% of the viewers from its Eureka lead-in.  (Note: all ratings data reflects final averaged Live + 7 DVR data for episodes that aired through 9/19/2010.) In Canada, Haven ranks as one of the top five series for Showcase in Adults 25-54.*

Haven kicks off the summer with a sizzling start. The supernatural original scripted series premiered on Monday, July 12, 2010 to a total viewing audience of 298,000 viewers (2+), making it the highest rated Canadian scripted series premiere of all-time on Showcase.

The debut episode, which aired at 10 pm ET/PT, pulled in an impressive 127,000 viewers in the A25-54 demographic and 118,000 viewers in the A18-49 category and won its timeslot within the specialty broadcasting landscape for 2+ and A25-54 categories.

Haven centers on the small town of Haven, Maine, where FBI agent Audrey (Emily Rose) discovers that the curious enclave is a long time refuge for people with supernatural afflictions. As the townspeople’s dormant abilities begin to express themselves, Audrey helps keep these forces at bay while discovering the many secrets of Haven – including one surrounding her own surprising past in this extraordinary place.

Haven is developed and produced by E1 Entertainment, and is co-commissioned by Canwest with the Syfy Channel in the United States.

Showcase is dedicated to providing top quality Canadian dramatic content. The channel is the home of big, bold original series, including: Cra$h & Burn and the upcoming premieres of Lost Girl and Shattered.

This summer Showcase sizzles with supernatural drama, Haven. Beneath the surface of small-town Haven, Maine lies hidden dark secrets and FBI agent Audrey Parker will stop at nothing to uncover them all – including her own.

In the 13-episode series, viewers are taken on a supernatural journey where every sign is a clue and there are no coincidences. Haven premieres Monday, July 12 at 10pm ET/PT.

Haven, starring Emily Rose (Jericho, Brothers and Sisters) and Lucas Bryant (MVP, Queer as Folk), is based on The Colorado Kid from renowned author Stephen King. The series follows the shrewd and confident FBI agent Audrey Parker (Rose) with a lost past who arrives in the small town of Haven on a routine case.

The town turns out to be a longtime refuge for people that are affected by a range of supernatural afflictions. Audrey chooses to stay in Haven and explore its many secrets, not only to unravel the mysteries surrounding the troubled locals, but to dig deeper into the unsettling truths about her own history and unique ties to this extraordinary place. Audrey quickly learns that life is different in Haven as the town reveals itself as a supernatural abyss.

“The breathtaking scenery of Halifax, Nova Scotia is the perfect location to capture the essence of the fictional small town of Haven” said Christine Shipton, SVP, Dramatic and Factual Content, Canwest Broadcasting. “We are proud to join this international partnership and have strong Canadian producers bringing Haven exclusively to Showcase in Canada.”

As she resolves the problems of others, Audrey finds allies in Haven to help her along the way.

There’s Nathan Wuornos (Bryant), a wry local detective who becomes Audrey’s partner on the police force – and who is himself one of the people suffering a supernatural affliction. Duke Crocker (Eric Balfour, 24, Six Feet Under) is Nathan’s nemesis, a rogue who makes a living doing secretive work on both sides of the law.

Lurking in the background are more town locals who will try to impede on Audrey’s journey, like Vince and Dave Teagues, the brothers who own the town newspaper and Police Chief Wuornos (Nicholas Campbell, Da Vinci’s Inquest, Cinderella Man), Nathan’s father who – like many in Haven – is skilled at keeping the town’s secrets. Throughout Audrey’s quest to understand herself and the great mysteries of Haven, she discovers that she herself may be the key to unlock the town’s past.
