SyFy Cancels 'Haven' After Five Seasons

SyFy has cancelled 'Haven,' cancelling the show days before the premiere of the second half of Season 5.

'Haven' features Emily Rose, Lucas Bryant, Nicholas Campbell and Eric Balfour. Developed by Sam Ernst and Jim Dunn, 'Haven' is based on the Stephen King novel 'The Colorado Kid.' 'Haven' centers around characters who struggle to help townspeople with supernatural afflictions and prote ct the town from the effects of those afflictions. Haven premiered to mixed reviews from critics, with its first season attaining a metascore of 53 (out of 100) according to review aggregator Metacritic. The Miami Herald‍ '​s Glenn Garvin found it "quite successful" as a "narrative of eccentric, slightly damaged yet ultimately warm characters", while USA Today‍ '​s Robert Bianco called it a "ludicrously see-through supernatural crime drama that wastes a perfectly fine performance from Emily Rose".
