Syfy Unveils Summer 2017 Schedule!

Syfy has unveiled its Summer 2017 schedule and there’s only one new series (but it sounds very Roger Corman-esque). Also included: one movie, one returning unscripted series and four returning dramas – plus a return to Comic-Con for more and thorough coverage of Nerd Prom (trust me, I’m a nerd…)

The new series, blood Drive, is about the last good cop being forced into a cross country race in which the cars are fueled with human blood (very Roger Corman, right?).

The new movie is (wait for it…) Sharknado 5; the returning unscripted series is Face Off (possibly my favorite unscripted series ever).

Back for more are: 12 Monkeys (10 episodes over three nights), Dark Matter, Wynonna Earp (actually better than the graphic novel that spawned), and Killjoys.

The second season finale could have been a series finale with a very few adjustments, but with the show’s renewal, it is, instead, a really good season finale.

How To Kill Friends and Influence People offers answers to burning questions; lots of action and banter, and unexpected sacrifice. If Eric Frank Russell were alive today, he’d definitely approve.

Syfy has ordered 13-epiosde second seasons for both of its Friday night space operas – Dark Matter (above) and Killjoys.

Dark Matter – which revolves around a crew of a mercenary ship who have had their identities wiped – comes from Stargate veterans John Mallozzi and Paul Mullie.

Kiljoys – following a trio of Reclamation Agents (bounty hunters) in a planetary system of terraformed moons – was created by Michelle Lovretta, who also created Lost Girl.

Both shows ended with rather mindboggling cliffhangers so it will come as a relief to many that they were renewed so quickly. The second seasons of both shows will air in 2016. For more, follow the jump.

All season, the Killjoy team of Dutch, Johnny and D’Avin have been told they’re going to have to choose sides. The moment has arrived.

In Killjoys’ (Syfy, 9/8C) season finale, Escape Velocity, it all comes together – Level 6, Red 17 and so much more that it hardly seems fair to stuff it all into one breakneck paced episode.

Leads Cast for Killjoys!

aaron-ashmore

Killjoys, a co-production between Syfy, Space and Temple Street Productions, has cast Hannah John-Kamen, Aaron Ashmore and Luke Macfarlane for the space opera that revolves around three fun-loving, hard-living bounty hunters in a distant system on the brink of war.

The series comes from the producers of Orphan Black and the creator of Lost Girl. That suggests an intriguing mix of elements – and a series that will probably begin by jumping into the deep end (remember the premiere of Lost Girl?).

Production begins on the 10-episode, one-hour series on August 5th with the series premiere in 2015.
