Earpers are you ready to meet Mama Earp? Wynonna Earp has officially found her! Syfy announced Monday that Megan Follows (Reign) has been cast in the pivotal recurring Season 3 role. She will play Michelle Earp, Wynonna’s (Melanie Scrofano) birth mother who fans discovered was still alive in a shocking Season 2 cliffhanger.
Follows, a Canadian actress, is best known for her role as Queen Catherine de Medici on Reign, as well as credits including Anne of Green Gables, Heartland, Second Chances and Strong Medicine. “Megan Follows is one of Canada’s most beloved and versatile performers, and we are beyond thrilled to have her onboard for such an iconic role,” said showrunner and creator Emily Andras. “Her ferocity and fearlessness will fit in fabulously with the rest of our phenomenal cast,” Andras added.
After having to give up her baby at the end of last season, Season 3 will see Wynonna, post-partum and back to her whiskey-soaked recklessness as she’s more determined than ever to destroy the Earp Curse and its originator, Bulshar. Wynonna Earp Season 3 is currently in production and will return to Syfy and Space Channel later this year.
