So, if you've been on Twitter at all ever and looked at the Haven accounts, you've seen the actors, the character accounts, everyone asking us to help them get a fifth season at SyFy. We would love to see a fifth season too! Haven is one of our favorite shows to watch, it's why we blog about it after all, and we'd like to see it going to the fullest end of the story. Which, at the rate they're giving us answers in the form of more questions, could be awhile! (We hope so, anyway.) And thus we bring you sample letters in your choice of downloadable formats, to edit and revise and muck about with to your heart's content, and an incomplete list of people you can contact to let them know you'd like a fifth season. If you have any other outlets to add, from snail mail to Facebook, please drop us a line on Twitter or in the comments and we'll get this post updated as quick as possible.
The base text is under the cut to get you started if you want to personalize it - we've put together an assortment of mix-and-match letters, from specific ships to mystery lovers. And if nothing else, it might knock some ideas loose for your own fan letters!

Dear Friends at SyFy,
As a huge fan of your original scripted TV show Haven, I am writing to ask you to renew the show for a fifth season.
My name is [name] and I am a big fan of your original TV show Haven. I've been watching for all four seasons, and would really love to see you renew it for a fifth season.
[for the shippers]
I look forward to watching the amazing performances from Lucas Bryant, Eric Balfour, and the always excellent Emily Rose every week. Lucas Bryant and Emily Rose have amazing chemistry as Nathan and Audrey, and I love watching their relationship change and deepen as they confront new obstacles.

I look forward to watching the amazing performances from Lucas Bryant, Eric Balfour, and the always excellent Emily Rose every week. Eric Balfour and Lucas Bryant have amazing chemistry as Duke and Nathan, and I can't get enough of their bromance every week! I love how they've gone from bickering enemies to best friends, and I can't wait to see what crazy things they'll do next.
[for the mystery lovers]
I love mystery and the supernatural, and I love watching Haven give us more puzzles and more weird Troubles every week. Not to mention all the new surprises and developments in the ongoing mystery of how the Troubles came to Haven and what Audrey has to do with it all. Especially with the addition of William in the fourth season, and everything that he's revealed about Audrey and everything that he's done to Haven. It's thrilling, and I can't wait to find out what happens next!
[a transitional paragraph if you want to combine character with system!]
I believe that the combination of nuanced characters who grow and change and take action within the show, and a rich world full of mysteries both ancient and new, is what makes Haven such an amazing show. The balance between the two aspects is a difficult one for any show to strike, and I feel Haven accomplishes it with a delicacy and ease seen on few, if any, other shows currently airing.
I realize this doesn't sound like anything a normal fanperson writes, like you might see on Tumblr or Twitter, but I'm trying to put my love for this show into more normal words. If you look on the web you'll find that Haven has a strong, vocal fanbase that is only getting stronger as the mystery continues. Please renew it for a fifth season so that we can continue discovering the secrets of this supernatural small town.
