Syfy has cancelled “Haven,” pulling the plug on the supernatural drama ahead of the premiere of the second half of its fifth season, Variety has confirmed.
The series, which stars Emily Rose, Lucas Bryant, Nicholas Campbell and Eric Balfour and was developed by Sam Ernst and Jim Dunn, is based on the Stephen King novel “The Colorado Kid.” A mid-tier sci-fi show for the NBCUniversal Cable-owned channel, it performed solidly for the first couple seasons but never quite caught as much buzz as other programming.
The second half of “Haven’s” fifth season is set to premiere Oct. 8.

Showrunner Gabrielle Stanton pledged that the final episodes would provide closure for fans of the show - even though the cancellation was unknown when they were written.

Former WWE Superstar Adam Copeland, known in the ring as Edge, has signed on to play the comic book character Al Rothstein, a.k.a. Atom Smasher in Season 2 of The Flash. The actor has signed on to appear in The Flash Season 2 premiere, which is currently in production, although his character on the show will be quite different than his rendition in the DC Comics. Here's a description of the character from ComicBook.com.
"One of the most powerful enemies we encounter this season, Atom Smasher has come to Central City to kill The Flash. His incredible strength and ability to grow to enormous size makes him more than a match for Flash and the entire S.T.A.R. Labs team will have to come together to find a way to defeat him."
In the DC Comics, Al Rothstein was a hero, but there was villainy in his family line. »
