The Shat hits the fan next year on "Haven" - William Shatner ("Star Trek") is set to guest star in a four episode arc of the Showcase fan-favourite series in 2015.

Shatner will play a pivotal character that has the potential to forever impact the fate of the town of Haven and its troubled residents. Airing Thursdays at 10pm, "Haven" races toward its game-changing midseason finale with the last two episodes of 2014.

In “Chemistry” (airing December 4th), divided loyalties put Haven’s heroes at odds with one another, while a terrifying revelation changes everything. Canadian Jay Reso - also known as WWE Superstar Christian Cage - appears in the episode, reuniting with his real-life, lifelong friend and former tag-team partner Adam Copeland (WWE Superstar Edge Rated R), who plays Dwight. In a recurring guest role, Reso will play McHugh, one of Dwight’s oldest and closest friends.

Then, in the midseason finale “Chosen” (December 11th), a shocking revelation threatens to upend the fragile stability of Haven. Mara’s endgame is finally revealed, while Audrey (Emily Rose) and Nathan (Lucas Bryant) pursue a plan to stop her once and for all.

There’s more "Haven" to come as the series returns to Showcase in 2015 with 13 all-new episodes. Shatner, Reso, Laura Mennell ("Alphas") and Kris Lemche ("Joan of Arcadia") are among the guest stars to be featured when the series returns next year.

"Haven" is based on the novella "The Colorado Kid" from renowned author Stephen King, and it follows former FBI agent Audrey Parker, who becomes a cop in the small town of Haven, Maine, and soon discovers the town’s many secrets, which also hold the key to unlocking the mysteries of her lost past.
