On October 7, 2010, Syfy announced that Haven would begin production on a thirteen-episode second season to begin airing July 15, 2011. On March 22, 2011, SyFy announced that they would air a Christmas special of Haven during season two.
Jason Priestley directed the ninth episode and guest starred in a four-episode arc as Chris Brody, a handsome but anti-social marine biologist who is forced to deal with an affliction most would consider a blessing. Vinessa Antoine had a recurring role as Evidence "Evi" Ryan, a former con-artist and Duke's estranged wife.
Syfy premiered the season premiere at San Diego Comic Con during the network's screening panel two months prior to its premiere date.
Adam "Edge" Copeland guest starred as Dwight Hendrickson, a shrewd longtime Haven resident and a former Army Ranger felled by a supernatural affliction in Afghanistan who puts his tactical skills to use in Haven as the mysterious "Cleaner." Originally going to be a guest, Copeland was instead promoted to recurring after his role was expanded to four episodes. Cristián de la Fuente also guest starred as Cornell, a straight-laced, conservative, mild-mannered banker who is hiding a dark and shocking double life.
Season 2 also included the stand-alone Christmas episode "Silent Night" which was later included in the DVD/Blu-ray release as a bonus feature. However, that release omitted the Teagues' narration.
