"We couldn’t be happier to see the story of Audrey Parker and the creepy, quirky town of Haven continue next year. Season three has hit a creative and critical high, and we’re very excited to see where the talented production team takes our colorful cast of characters led by the perfect trifecta of Emily Rose, Eric Balfour and Lucas Bryant in season four," said Stern.
Canadian broadcaster Showcase also has renewed Haven ahead of its planned Dec. 21 third-season finale in the U.S. and Canada. The series also airs internationally on Universal Networks International.
