There's a new sheriff in town. She's Wyatt Earp's great-granddaughter, Wynonna!

Based on the Image Comic series by the same name, Syfy released this plot info for the pilot episode of Wynonna Earp, which will premiere on April 1:

After years away, Wynonna Earp has traveled back to her home town of Purgatory to reluctantly take on the role destined for Wyatt Earp's heir: Demon protector. Her enemy: Revenants, the resurrected (and twisted) souls of the criminals Wyatt Earp once took down. Using only her wits and her wit, Wynonna, along with sister Waverely, associate Agent Dolls and Wyatt's cursed-with-immortality-best-friend Doc Holliday, must try to stop the Revenants from taking over the town - and escaping into the world.

Syfy has also released eight new photos from the set, accompanied by revealing captions. The photos feature Melanie Scrofano (Wynnona) and Dominique Provost-Chalkley, who plays Wynnona's kid sister, Waverly.


Caption via Syfy: The Earp legacy looms over the tiny - and tulmultous - town of Purgatory. What is that legacy? Oh, just having to kill demons called Revenants - a duty that's now falling on Wynonna's shoulders (sic).


Caption via Syfy: Agent Xavier Dolls (Shamier Anderson) is on a mission to keep the town of Purgatory safe - don't get in his way.

A later caption goes into even more detail:

Wynonna finds an unlikely accomplice in Agent Dolls.

Caption via Syfy: Waverly's interests include: helping her big sister Wynonna, usually being the smartest person in the room and wearing cut-off shirts.


Caption via Syfy: Like her great-grandfather Wyatt, Wynonna is no fan of the law.
