Posted: July 5, 2011, 13:22
Here is a press release for season 2 of Haven. It's sent out by Showcase that starts the season on July 18 and that is why the premier date below is July 18 instead of July 15 when SyFy starts season 2. Oh, and the press release has some small spoilers so read at your own risk...


* Haven season two premieres Monday, July 18 at 10pm ET/PT exclusively on Showcase
* Uncover the truth behind the unbelievable and unimaginable on the second season of Haven, returning Monday, July 18 at 10 p.m. ET/PT only on Showcase.

On last year’s explosive finale of Haven, Chief Wournos shattered into bits and pieces after he confessed to Nathan and Audrey that he could no longer live with his tormenting supernatural affliction. Before the chief self destructed, he told Nathan that he must replace him as the new chief and protect the small town. He also told Audrey that not everyone is thrilled that she’s back in town, leading her to tell Nathan that Lucy isn’t her mother, but rather she is Lucy reincarnated. It was in that moment that Lucas reveals that he can feel Audrey’s touch, and a woman claiming to be FBI agent Audrey Parker pulls out a gun on them.

In season two of Haven, the stakes are even higher as Audrey, Nathan and Duke come into contact with more mysterious figures who crop up in the small town – including Chris Brody (Jason Priestley), the son of Haven’s mayor, with his own supernatural affliction. Making matters more complicated in Duke’s life is the sudden arrival of a woman from his past – Evi Ryan (Vinessa Antoine) who happens to be Duke’s estranged wife with a secret agenda. Audrey continues to come to terms with her true identity and her real purpose for being in Haven.

Adam Copeland, WWE’s “Edge,” guest stars as Dwight Hendrickson, a longtime Haven resident who assisted Nathan’s late father in keeping particularly suspicious supernatural activity under wraps. Also guest starring is Cristian de la Fuente as Cornell; a straight-laced, conservative, mild-mannered banker who we discover is hiding a dark and shocking double life. Jason Priestley directed one episode of the second season and guest stars in a four-episode story arc. Stephen McHattie reprises his role as Reverend Ed Driscoll, the influential town leader who has a vendetta against the “cursed” people in town.
