8. Wynonna Earp- Waverly Earp

Wynonna Earp is a western comedy series written by Emily Andras, and draws an eccentric picture of two sisters struggling with their grandfathers past. Wynonna Earp (Melanie Scrofano), the leather wearing and whiskey slugging lead, is battling demon revenants in her hometown of Purgatory. While she’s busy with that, her sister, Waverly Earp (Dominique Provost-Chalkley), is battling her own demons.

An electric introduction to the town’s police officer leaves her questioning her sanity, and her sexuality. The show follows the story of both sisters’ as they come to terms with their problems, and send their demons back to Hell.

It isn’t easy for Waverly, at first. She suffocated the initial spark she had with Officer Nicole Haught (Katherine Barrell). After a while though, their passion for one another couldn’t be contained. The confident Nicole paired with the cautious Waverly is nothing short of perfection. Their relationship tests limits, exceeds boundaries, and is everything the queer community is deserving of.

Falling victim to no tropes, “WayHaught” is quickly becoming the ship of dreams for fans worthy of positive representation. Season 1 was about self-discovery, and although ended on a bit of a cliff-hanger, we’re hopeful that season 2 doesn’t disappoint. With Andras as the showrunner, our hopes are higher than ever.
