In Germany, the German offshoot Syfy aired the first season from October 8, 2010 and the second season from November 10, 2011, both in German-language premieres. On free TV , the broadcaster RTL II showed the first season from September 7, 2011. Due to a lack of audience interest , however, it was postponed from the slot at 10 p.m. to 12:10 a.m. after the second episode and then completely shortly before the end of the first season set.

Reunion , the twelfth episode of the third season, which also shows violence at an American high school, was originally scheduled to air on December 14, 2012. Because of the rampage at Sandy Hook Elementary School that morning, Syfy decided not to air the episode. Instead, a repetition of the animated Eureka episode Do You See What I See ran on this program slot .


The Canadian city of Lunenburg serves as the city backdrop for Haven .

In Germany, the complete series has been broadcast on JOYN Plus since December 2019.
