“Killjoys” will air its Season 2 finale Friday. “Dark Matter” will air a double episode Friday, with its Season 2 finale set for Sept. 16. Both shows are set to return sometime in 2017.
“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. The series stars Hannah John-Kamen, Aaron Ashmore and Luke Macfarlane. “Killjoys” is produced by Temple Street Productions in association with Space and Syfy. Creator Michelle Lovretta executive produces along with David Fortier and Ivan Schneeberg.
“Dark Matter” centers on a crew who awaken on a derelict spaceship with no memories of who they are or how they got there. Facing threats at every turn, they have to work together to survive a voyage fueled by vengeance, betrayal and hidden secrets. Created by Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie, the show is based on Mallozzi and Mullie’s graphic novel of the same name. The series stars Melissa O’Neil, Anthony Lemke, Alex Mallari Jr. and Jodelle Ferland with Roger Cross and Zoie Palmer.
