‘Wynonna Earp’ Star Melanie Scrofano Thanks Fans With Billboard In Times Square

When production of the fourth season of the Syfy series “Wynonna Earp” was delayed, the show’s fans jumped at the chance to save it.

It started with the #FightForWynonna campaign on social media but quickly turned into something much larger. A billboard in Times Square, New York City.

Melanie Scrofano, who plays the title character on the show, saw a tweet about the billboard and tweeted she was “shaking.”

Adding, “Thank you for teaching me what fighting for what you want looks like. And thank you for doing it with class, love and humour in your hearts.”

The show recently brought home a People’s Choice Award, but according to The Hollywood Reporter the series producer, IDW is having issues with funding the show.

Other attempts by fans have included signs during “Today” to bring attention to the show’s status.

A statement from IDW to THR says they are “committed to continuing” the show, adding, “Much like the fans, we are passionate about not only the series, but the comics, the characters and the overall message that the “Wynonna Earp” franchise carries.”

Scrofano and series creator Emily Andras created their own billboard as a gesture of gratitude to fans. “Fight like an Earper,” the billboard reads.

Scarfano posted the photo after Buzzfeed‘s Nora Dominick noticed the billboard in Times Square.
