Showrunner Gabrielle Stanton noted the creative team was prepared for Season 5 to be the finish to the story, which should provide a satisfying conclusion.
“I’m sure as a fellow TV fan, there’s nothing more annoying than when a show kind of feels like it might be wrapping up, but they just don’t address it, they don’t come to any kind of satisfying conclusion,” Stanton told The Wrap. “I always think that’s cheating the audience a little bit, of a nice satisfying ending. So we really looked at these 13 episodes as if… If we were indeed going to end, what would be the best ending we could possibly do for Haven?”
Stanton does note a TV movie following the finale is always possible if there's enough demand from the fans.
"I think it will feel satisfying on its own as a finale for a series as a whole," she said. "But if fans wanted a TV movie after that, I bet you’d find some actors and writers who are very amenable to that."
It's also noted Haven could survive at another network or Netflix, with there being interest on the part of the creators and cast.
"I’m sure that [the show’s production companies] eOne and Piller/Segan/Shepard are out there looking at that option, which is out there now. It’s so cool, that that option now exists where it never used to. I can’t speak to it personally because I’m not involved in those discussions."
