Syfy has opted against airing an episode of Haven this evening that features scenes of fictitious violence in a high school.
“In light of today’s tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut, we have decided not to air it,” a spokesman said. “At this time, no decision has been made as to when the episode will air.”
In its place, Syfy will air the animated holiday episode of Eureka dubbed “Do You See What I See.”
Haven is a drama that stars Emily Rose (Jericho, Brothers and Sisters) that is based on the novella The Colorado Kid from Stephen King. It follows FBI agent Audrey Parker (Rose) as she arrives in the small town of Haven, Maine, which turns out to be a longtime refuge for people that are affected by a range of supernatural afflictions. The series’ current season ends Dec. 21.
