Hannah John-Kamen stars as the gorgeous, complicated, and deadly Dutch.

Status: This show posted series low ratings levels in its fourth season, averaging viewership of less than half of what it saw in its third year. It had already been renewed through a fifth and final season, though, so it should at least have the opportunity to wrap up its storylines.

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

    1. Charles Shepherd

      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.

  4. Cin

    Please bring killjoy back for more seasons and maybe longer seasons! Love this show and just can’t get enough!!!!

  5. Mark

    we watch the show every week it is one of our favorites so come on Syfy bring it on on for Year two

  6. Gildren

    Do not cancel Killjoys, it is easily the best thing Syfy has put on the air since Stargate

  7. K

  8. Charlotte

    me and my mum love kill joys. Please DO NOT CANCEL this show. I have already been upset enough with several cancelation from other networks. DO NOT BE A PARTY POOPER! and join them. we record the show as not to miss an episode when we are busy because we love the show. we have fallen for the shows great set of characters and storylines. not to mention the terrific actors and actress, Love Them. And of course the perfect theme (SCYFI RULES).

      Killjoys has been renewed for a second season that will begin airing in Summer 2016

  9. Annette

    I totally agree, this show to me is really a feeling of being there in space. This is my favorite today of SYFI best. SO IN LOVE. WITH KILLJOY. PLEASE. bring them back.

  10. Marcus

    I don’t mind this show. It’s alright but the dialogue could be better. I personally like Dark Matter more. I’m still watching Killjoys and will be upset if it gets cancelled. I would be way more upset if Dark Matter was cancelled. I believe both these shows don’t get the ratings and viewers they deserve. Maybe it’s the Friday night time slot or maybe it’s not advertised enough. Time will tell. I’m pushing both these shows on my friends that don’t watch lol.

  11. Donald Highsmith

    The show needs to take me somewhere I have never been before. This is space, who wants to see bounty hunters in space. Is there so little adventure and intrigue. At first the show was really great, now, it has evolved into a eight to five job, I grew with star trek, give me some vision. The show is boring, it need to be put out of its misery.
