killjoys-syfy-s2Status: Returning, 3rd Season Airs Summer 2017
Timeslot: Fridays 8 PM EST
Premiere: June 30th
Network: Syfy
Starring: Aaron Ashmore, Luke Macfarlane, Hannah John-Kamen
Series Website:

Description: Killjoys follows a fun-loving, hard living 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.

Hannah John-Kamen stars as the gorgeous, complicated, and deadly Dutch. A top-level Killjoy, she’s a much loved and charming presence in her community, with a unique gift for earning people’s trust and respect regardless of their class. Under her banter and protective flirtations, there is a dark secret past.

Season End Status: This show’s numbers for Syfy were not great during its second season, but apparently good enough, and–as with Dark Matter–it was helped by the partnership with the Canadian Space Channel up north.  Moderate to low rated cable shows that make it to a third season typically target a run of four to six total to make them at least binge-worthy.  With the international partnership, this show could make it to that mark, but I wouldn’t expect it to go any further if the ratings do not improve.

    I love this show!! It’s fresh where as Dark Matter just feels stale. Bring on season 2!!

      I agree. It’s MUCH better than Dark Matter. I quickly lost interest in Dark Matter. There was no characters I really cared about. This show has a vague Firefly type feel to it. So far, I’m really digging it!

        FireFly was ass, please don’t taint Killjoys like that. But yeah Dark Matter needs to go. That show died the instant Wesley showed up.

  2. Cassie

    This show has a massive following in tumblr. Please.don’t cancel!

  3. Jeff

    Good thing it’s Not there show to cancel. They don’t produce it, or are the original network to broadcast it. The network that owns it is SPACE. They just pick it up for the States. Why do they act like they own it?

      Syfy is actually partnered with Space on Killjoys (Dark Matter as well). So if Syfy decides not to participate for a second season, Space may not be able to afford to keep the show going unless another partner jumped onboard.
