NEW YORK, Oct. 12 (UPI) -- Syfy says it has renewed its U.S. series "Haven" for a third season.
The 13 new episodes are to start airing in 2012, Mark Stern, the network's president of original content and co-head of original content for Universal Cable Productions, announced Wednesday.
"The superb cast, led by Emily Rose, Eric Balfour and Lucas Bryant, along with the terrific production team, delivered a successful season in both critical acclaim and rising viewership. We're very excited to see this compelling series return for a third season of supernatural intrigue in 2012," Stern said in a statement.
Based on the novella "The Colorado Kid" from Stephen King, "Haven" 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 holds the key to unlocking the mysteries of her lost past, the network said in a synopsis.
