In its new series review, Collider gave Wynonna Earp four stars, calling it “a fresh and familiar take on zombies, the Wild West, and gunslinger culture” and “something that also feels different to anything we’re seeing on TV currently, thanks not only to its setting, but its prominent placement of so many strong, profane, kickass female characters.”
Digital Journal said the series was “smart” and “complex” with “a lot going for it”.
The A.V. Club called Melanie Scrofano “the right woman for the job…an easy, authoritative presence”; and “when it’s allowed the room to run, Wynonna Earp delights in itself,” adding that the series “could grow into the good-time Western pulp it has the potential to be.”
E! Entertainment Television named Wynonna Earp the “Best New Show” of 2016.
It was chosen by Variety as one of the 20 best new series of 2016, stating “what this prairie-set Canadian import lacks in budget, it makes up for in gumption, sass and camaraderie.”
In a post-Season 1 review for Salon, Melanie McFarland wrote: “This modern Western proved its mettle by dint of unexpectedly weird plotting and witty dialogue…[Melanie] Scrofano lends a hardened and slightly feral swagger to Wynonna that’s vastly entertaining…
