As Syfy viewers may know, the cable channel is currently airing a pair of science fiction dramas on Friday nights — Killjoys and Dark Matter. Should one or both of them return for another season?
Killjoys follows a fun-loving, hard living trio of interplanetary bounty hunters who are sworn to remain impartial as they chase deadly warrants throughout the Quad — a distant system on the brink of a bloody, multi-planetary class war. The series stars Aaron Ashmore, Luke Macfarlane, and Hannah John-Kamen.
On Dark Matter, the crew of a derelict spaceship is awakened from stasis with no memories of who they are or how they got on board. Facing threats at every turn, they have to work together to survive a voyage charged with vengeance, betrayal and hidden secrets. The show’s cast includes Marc Bendavid, Melissa O’Neil, Anthony Lemke, Alex Mallari Jr, Jodelle Ferland, Roger Cross, Zoie Palmer, Melanie Liburd, and Shaun Sipos.
Both of these shows are in their second seasons, neither is doing very well in the ratings, and neither has been renewed for a third season yet. Their numbers are about the same and it’s unclear if either will be back at this point.
What do you think? Do you like Killjoys or Dark Matter? Which is better? Should either one be renewed for a third season?
