Haven Season 5B Premiere

Haven fans, it’s time to grab that red Sharpie you’ve been keeping at your side and run to the calendar: Season 5B will premiere Thursday, Oct. 8, at 10/9c, Syfy has confirmed.

As showrunner Matt McGuinness recently told TVLine, “The tsunami of Troubles brought by Duke has Haven-ites locked down for their own safety” when Season 5 picks up. “Fortunately, Audrey and Nathan are locked down together, which is nice for them.”

Haven also will premiere new episodes on Syfy channels in 87 countries around the world, with the UK, Germany, Spain, Asia and Benelux among the first to broadcast them in primetime.
