Hunt demons with Wynonna Earp in new footage from Syfy's supernatural series

Along with space epics and time-travel thrillers, Syfy’s 2016 lineup is also mixing things up with a supernatural thriller with some gunslinger swagger.

The network (Corporate owner of Blastr -Ed.) has released a new featurette going behind the scenes of the new series Wynona Earp, a supernatural series about a descendant of Wyatt Earp (get it?) tasked with hunting down demons and defending the planet from all kinds of evil. Based on the cult hit IDW comic of the same name, the series looks to be one part Supernatural, one part Tombstone and one part From Dusk Till Dawn. Weird? Sure. But definitely interesting. The series stars Melanie Scrofano (Supernatural, RoboCop) in the title role, along with Tim Rozonm, Shamier Anderson and Dominique Provost-Chalkey.

Here’s the logline to break down the basics:

After years away, Wynonna Earp has traveled back to her home town of Purgatory to reluctantly take on the role destined for Wyatt Earp's heir: Demon protector. Her enemy: Revenants, the resurrected (and twisted) souls of the criminals Wyatt Earp once took down. Using only her wits and her wit, Wynonna, along with sister Waverely, associate Agent Dolls and Wyatt's cursed-with-immortality-best-friend Doc Holliday, must try to stop the Revenants from taking over the town - and escaping into the world. 

Wynonna Earp is slated to premiere Friday, April 1, on Syfy.
