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.
Killjoys, a 10-episode series built around three fun-loving interstellar bounty hunters, has been greenlit by Syfy to premiere in 2015. The series was created by Michelle Lovretta (Lost Girl) and is produced by Temple Street Productions (Orphan Black). With that pedigree it should be quite a ride.

Awhile back, I had the opportunity to take part in a conference call with the stars of Syfy’s Lost Girl [10/9C] as they helped promote the show’s debut. For one reason or another, the transcript did not arrive on time to be posted for the premiere, but since the conversation went deeper than just the premiere – and because Anna Silk, Zoie Palmer and Kris Holden Ried [currently appearing in Underworld: Awakening, as it happens] were so much [positively cheeky in places], it’s only fair to share the experience with EclipseMagazine.com’s readers.
Note: There is a huge spoiler for Season Two somewhere below. Just sayin’…
