Haven - Friday, July 15 at 10PM - Last season, when FBI agent Audrey Parker (Emily Rose) arrived in the town of Haven, Maine on a routine case, her knack for unraveling mysteries proved an asset when she discovered that the seemingly sleepy town was, in fact, a longtime refuge for people with supernatural afflictions. As the second season unfolds, Audrey must not only stay on top of Haven's many afflictions, but she must also solve her most challenging case yet: the secret of her own lost past and its ties to Haven. With the help of Nathan Wuornos (Lucas Bryant), a handsome local cop with his own trouble, and Duke Crocker (Eric Balfour) a local smuggler and reluctant aide in solving Haven's troubles, Audrey digs deeper into uncovering her identity. Guest stars Jason Priestley (who will also direct an episode) and Vinessa Antoine join the cast for the new season, currently in production on 13 episodes in Nova Scotia.
