Today, showrunner Emily Andras teased fans on Twitter, "Do you guys want a behind-the-scenes photo of the first Wynonna Earp read-through later today or are you over it?"
Of course, after fans enthusiastically cheered on the idea of new Wynonna Earp content, schedules changed a bit. Andras followed up, in all caps, "Guys, the read-through has been postponed to Friday, probably due to my hubris, so I will now run around the office taking much less cool behind-the-scenes photos for you!"
Less cool than a cast read-through? Sure -- but the ten shots she took from around the production office of the cult hit were still a ton of fun, and represent the return to set that Earpers have been waiting months for.
Wynonna Earp, which adapts Beau Smith's creator-owned comic books, has developed an intensely personal relationship with its audience, in part due to how accessible Andras is on social media and how earnestly she believes in the show she is making.
"It is such a privilege I cannot even begin to tell you," Andras told ComicBook.com last summer. "I don't want to oversell Wynonna Earp because I feel like there is so much incredible work being delivered right now with strong female protagonists, from Stranger Things' Eleven to Wonder Woman. It really does seem to be hitting a place in the culture zeitgeist: we are talking about it and how important it is. At the same time, part of my heartbreak is that we are still talking about it and it's still kind of an anomaly. I don't mind being part of that discussion. What a privilege to be able to write a show which is essentially a supernatural Western where all the traditional male characters are female. At the same time, I feel like the male characters on this show are incredibly progressive and open minded and three-dimensional and kind of respect and admire the women on the show."

Here’s a snapshot of the decorating @MelanieScrofano personally did in my office to welcome me back because she can’t just be gorgeous, witty and brave she also had to be nice, ugh. #notugh pic.twitter.com/cspmP2SMo7— Emily Andras (@emtothea) January 9, 2018
Here’s a butt load of shackles and oozing things in jars because when you describe it as a ‘butt load’ it makes this all less terrifying, though terrifying it’s gonna be. ?#WynonnaEarpSeason3 pic.twitter.com/A2qd70U3Qa— Emily Andras (@emtothea) January 9, 2018
And finally, the piece de resistance: an original painting featuring the Golden Girls as dinosaurs. I hope you’ve enjoyed this desperate tour of the #WynonnaEarpSeason3 production office! pic.twitter.com/CIGMIOndOS— Emily Andras (@emtothea) January 9, 2018
