Syfy is treating us journalists with a couple of days of enjoyment and access to talent. Since I am far away from Toronto and could not attend, I sent some friends to act as correspondents for Seriesandtv: Danielle Barker, the star of Starvival, and Shannon Kook from DeGrassi among other stuff.
In the event, we are going to have access to Haven and Being Human cast and crew during dinner, while being able to visit the sets of Warehouse 13 and Defiance.
Luckily I am having the chance to have this humble site covering the event. And fortunately for us, folks at Syfy hooked us up with a storify app that will help us on our live coverage of the event. Continue reading

Almost every day there´s something to add to the lists for renewed shows on 2011 and all the cancelled shows on 2011, and today´s been all about the good news.
Syfy renews Haven for season three, and with this decision it is bringing back four originals, albeit Eureka for a final shortened season.
Syfy renewal order on Haven consists in thirteen episodes slated for early 2012 production, and to be aired in the second quarter.
The series has averaged two and a half million viewers, and those solid numbers helped the case in order for Haven to get renewed for third season. (These numbers are when DVR is added, though)
What is Haven ABout? Plot Synopsis
Syfy’s one-hour drama series Haven, starring Emily Rose (Jericho, Brothers and Sisters) is based on the novella The Colorado Kid from renowned author Stephen King. The series follows the shrewd and confident FBI agent Audrey Parker (Rose) who has a lost past, and arrives in the small town of Haven, Maine on a routine case. Before long, her natural curiosity lands her in the epicenter of activity in this curious enclave, which turns out to be a longtime refuge for people that are affected by a range of supernatural afflictions.
As the townspeople’s dormant abilities begin to express themselves, Audrey helps keep these forces at bay while discovering the many secrets of Haven — including one surrounding her own surprising connections to this extraordinary place.

Moving on our usual reviews of all the cancelled shows on 2011 and the renewed shows on 2011…
This time it´s time for one of the few revived series: Merlin.
Merlin was cancelled by NBC on its first season, but moved to Syfy for seasons two and three where it thrived. And now, after season three averaged 12% more ratings than the second season, Syfy renewed Merlin for season four.
Although the show is quite healthy on BBC in England, and there was no doubt it would come back for another run in England, it´s always nice to see a good vehicle coming back, and this time Syfy renewing Merlin means we also get to see some more magical times and Arthurian imaginery on TV.
Especially since Camelot got cancelled by Starz in a controversial decision.
The story needs to keep going and probably evolving into an even more magical Merlin whose powers can be seen by Arthur as a true ally instead of a menace as Uther always thought magic would be. But that´s all speculation. So far, it´s good to know Merlin got renewed by Syfy for season four.
What do you think? Are you glad to see Syfy renewing Merlin? Let me know in the comments section.
