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.

There are a lot of parallels between Wynonna Earp and Buffy the Vampire Slayer – being the Chosen One/Heir, being a bit of a troublemaker, having a younger sister and, oh, yeah, being tasked with slaying evil supernatural entities.

The primary big differences are: not having Joss Whedon writing/producing her exploits; having a much smaller budget, and being more a Western in Purgatory rather than a High School is Hell scenario.

Based on the IDW graphic novel by Beau Smith, Syfy’s modern supernatural western, Wynonna Earp, stars Melanie Scrofrano as Wyatt Earp’s great-great granddaughter, Wynonna Earp, a young woman who left town years ago but has now returned home to face her literal and figurative demons (although she doesn’t know it when we meet her – she’s just attending a funeral).

Syrfy has released a behind-the-scenes featurette that gives us the lowdown on the new series, Wynonna Earp, which premieres on April 1st. Check it out after the jump.
