Star Trek's original Capt. Kirk to land in Haven

After the November announcement that one our most blogged-about celebrities, William Shatner, will be joining Haven for a much-anticipated four-episode arc, here's hoping that we're getting closer to the TV series' return and the second half of its final season.

For those unfamiliar with the supernatural series, it's loosely based on the Stephen King novel The Colorado Kid. Strange events occur in a fictional seaside town in Maine where former FBI agent Audrey Parker, local detective Nathan Wuornos and smuggler Duke Crocker – portrayed, respectively, by Emily Rose, Lucas Bryant and Eric Balfour – struggle to protect the town from, and help its residents with, their supernatural afflictions, known as "troubles."

As the series progressed over the course of 4-1/2 seasons, Audrey has learned more about the mysteries of both Haven and her connection to the small, "troubled" town.

While it's still unknown what his exact role will be, Shatner's character will reportedly be pivotal as the series races to its conclusion, forever impacting the fate of the town of Haven and its people.

After the successful run Haven has had and the loyal fan-base it has amassed, when Stephen King approached networks with the idea for Under the Dome, CBS jumped at the chance to air it in the summer of 2013. Here's a look at how King and Haven have continued to keep viewers hooked since it began.

Haven  airs on Syfy in the United States and on Showcase in Canada. Return air dates have yet to be announced.
