Syfy’s latest hit series Haven has just started production on season 4 in Nova Scotia and the show has recruited a face familiar to many Syfy viewers. Colin Ferguson is best known as Sheriff Jack Carter from the series Eureka and now he comes to the troubled town in Maine to play a decidedly different role. There is no word yet on whether or not he is a regular or for how many episodes he’s sticking around, only that he is “joining the cast.” Let’s hope it’s for the whole season. Here is the pertinent information from today’s Syfy press release:
Startling new mysteries and secrets are in the works as Syfy’s hit series Haven goes into production today, May 8, on an all-new 13 episode Season 4 in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
When Haven premieres this October, Colin Ferguson (Eureka) returns to Syfy playing William, a handsome mysterious stranger, whose secret agenda leads him to Audrey (Emily Rose).
Season 4 of Haven picks up six months after the devastating events of the Season 3 cliffhanger in which the town was pummeled by a violent meteor storm. Audrey and Duke (Eric Balfour) vanished into thin air leaving an injured Nathan (Lucas Bryant) marooned in Haven.
Ferguson recently starred as the lovable Sherriff Jack Carter on the long-running hit Syfy series Eureka. Ferguson was also a producer on the series and directed several episodes. Ferguson’s many feature film credits include Because I Said So, Rowing Through and The Opposite of Sex. He has also starred in a number of movies for television and was a regular on the NBC remake of the hit British comedy series Coupling and the sitcom Then Came You. His many guest-starring roles include CSI, Malcolm in the Middle, Crossing Jordan and Becker.
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).
