Plot summary[edit]

Wynonna is a present-day descendant of the famous lawman Wyatt Earp, and she's the top special agent for a special unit known within the US Marshals as The Monster Squad. She battles such supernatural threats as Bobo Del Rey and his redneck, trailer-trash vampires that are pushing a new killer designer drug called "Hemo", and the Egyptian Mafia's mummy hitman, Raduk, Eater Of The Dead, who's out to do in all the other crime bosses. In her subsequent adventures she finished some outstanding Earp family business while dealing with Hillbilly Gremlins, and Zombie Mailmen alongside her fellow Marshalls.

After years on the run and in juvenile detention, Wynonna Earp is finally coming home. The only problem is no one back home wants her to return.

The program began airing April 1, 2016.[7] The series was renewed for Season 2 on July 23, 2016.[8]
