Season 2 of Syfy’s The Expanse kicks off with interplanetary tensions at an all-time high, the cold war between Earth and Mars is on the brink of an all-out battle. The series is based on the New York Times bestselling book series collectively known as “The Expanse,” written by Daniel Abraham and Ty Franck (under the pen name James S. A. Corey).
The season two premiere of Syfy’s The Expanse is set for Wednesday February 8, 2017 (10/9C). The first teaser follows the jump.
Heading into Season 2 of Syfy’s The Magicians, this group of unlikely heroes have been thrust into even more dangerous and unfamiliar territory, and must draw upon their novice skills to defeat a threat that could destroy the magical world itself. Driven by power, revenge and survival, they learn that those who entered the hauntingly beautiful world of Fillory will never be the same as those who leave.
Season 2 of The Magicians is set to premiere on Wednesday, January 25. Check out the new trailer after the break.
The second season finale of Dark Matter (Syfy, Fridays, 10/9C) – But First, We Save the Galaxy – brings the crew of the Raza to Eos-7 to try to prevent a war between the corporations. It’s the first Council of Corporations face-to-face meeting in over a decade (these people really don’t trust each other…).
What began as a series about mind-wiped six strangers on a spaceship has evolved into one where they’ve learned who they were and chosen not to be those people anymore. That decision put them in the surprising position of becoming something of an unheralded group of interstellar Robin Hoods – while leaving them among the most wanted (former) criminals in the galaxy.
Syfy has announced third season renewals for its Friday night space operas, Killjoys and Dark Matter ahead of their second season finales.
Killjoys wraps up its second season tomorrow, Friday, September 2nd (9/8C), while Dark Matter will run back-to-back episodes on Friday, September 9th (10/9C) before concluding its second season run on Friday, September 16th (10/9C).
Series descriptions and social media info follow the break.
Syfy has ordered two Grant Morrison projects to be produced by Universal Cable Productions: first: Morrison and Brian Taylor will adapt Aldous Huxley’s classic novel Brave New World; second, Morrison and Taylor will adapt Morrison’s graphic novel – created with artist Darick Robertson.
Morrison is best know for his works in comics, with his time on Batman probably being the most famous. Darick Robertson is probably best known for illustrating Warren Ellis’ Transmetropolitan.
Brian Taylor is best known for the films Crank and Gamer.
This fall, Syfy’s Z Nation will return for its third season. A new trailer suggests all kinds of chaos – with the team of survivors trying to save the world being reduced and the key Blue Boy looking like he’s prepared to have a lot of fun wiping them out.
The chaotic yet surprisingly engaging trailer follows the jump.
I first met Sharknado 4: The 4th Awakens Director Anthony C. Ferrante at a SyFy channel event a few years ago. I didn’t know who he was, but Sharknado was the talk of Comic-Con that year. Everywhere I went people made jokes about it, even a lot of the celebrities that I talked to. The first film touched a cultural nerve, now 4 years later and the franchise is still going strong. The movie debuts on SyFy Channel this week (Sunday, July 31st)
