Could Wynonna Earp EP's dream casting of Lucy Lawless become a reality?

The season 2 finale of Wynonna Earp ended with one mother of a cliffhanger: Wynonna goes to meet her mother.

Putting aside the fact that Wynonna knows where her mother has been and that the Earp matriarch seems to know about demons herself, we are most concerned with who Mama Earp is. Although we got a glimpse of her from the back — with great Earp hair, of course — showrunner Emily Andras told EW that the role hasn’t yet been cast. However, she jokingly said, “Lucy Lawless, call me immediately!” Fans took the idea and ran with it.

On Friday, a fan tweeted at Lawless, asking her to join the Syfy series, and the Xena actress said “Certainly. When and where?” Andras replied on Saturday to let Lawless know she would take her up on that offer, saying “I’ll go through official, non-twitter channels, but want you to know how much #Earpers (and our cast) would love to see this happen.” (Click the tweets below to follow the whole thread.)

Fans, tweeting both Lawless and Andras, showed their agreement, and even William Shatner got in on the action:

Wynonna Earp will return for season 3 on Syfy in 2018.
