UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. – September 1, 2016 – Syfy today announced a season three renewal for the space action dramas KILLJOYS and DARK MATTER. Both are currently wrapping their second seasons on Syfy: KILLJOYS will air its second season finale tomorrow, Friday, September 2 at 9/8c, while DARK MATTER will air a double episode on Friday, September 9 at 10/9c and 11/10c, and its season two finale on Friday, September 16 at 10/9c.
From Temple Street Productions (“Orphan Black,” “Being Erica”), Universal Cable Productions and creator Michelle Lovretta (“Lost Girl”), KILLJOYS follows a trio of interplanetary bounty hunters sworn to remain impartial as they chase deadly warrants throughout the Quad, a distant system on the brink of a bloody, multiplanetary class war. Starring Hannah John-Kamen as Dutch, and Aaron Ashmore and Luke Macfarlane as brothers John and D’avin, this season the KILLJOYS struggled to find the balance between politics, family and the good of the Quad. The series is produced by Temple Street Productions in association with Space and Syfy. Creator and showrunner Lovretta serves as executive producer, along with Temple Street Productions’ David Fortier and Ivan Schneeberg. Universal Cable Productions distributes the series worldwide.”
What do you think? Are you a fan of Killjoys? Are you glad the show’s been renewed?
I love Killjoys. I can’t wait for the third season!
Skipper…. Very pleased that the show is continuing.
It’s a great day. Glad it is renewed
The ratings should get a boost next season, with a resurgence of popularity in the space sci-fi genre. Don’t forget that SPACE is also airing the entire series of Star Trek Discovery, so having other shows like Killjoys and Dark Matter in their line-up can only boost the ratings for them all. In fact, The Expanse will also be back in January. Maybe it’ll get paired up with Discovery? Guess we’ll have to wait and see.
Well I for one I’m happy Killjoys and Dark Matter have been renewed for a third season!
The ratings DROP in the second season, and the show gets renewed. The RATINGS DON’T MATTER network strikes AGAIN! Everyone at SYFY should be fired. Abject stupidity is a quality you don’t want in an employee. the people who work at SYFY have nothing but that. What a disgrace.
According to the show’s(Dark Matter) creator, the ratings are really good internationally:
I guess it’s the same with Killjoys.
