Syfy Renews Killjoys, Dark Matter


UNIVERSAL CITY: Syfy has given third seasons to the space action dramas Killjoys and Dark Matter, both of which are wrapping up their second runs on the network.

From Temple Street Productions (Orphan Black, Being Erica), Universal Cable Productions and creator Michelle Lovretta (Lost Girl), Killjoys airs its season-two finale tonight. The series follows a trio of interplanetary bounty hunters sworn to remain impartial as they chase deadly warrants throughout the Quad, a distant system on the brink of a bloody, multiplanetary class war.

Dark Matter, from Prodigy Pictures and Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie (both of Stargate), will air a double episode on September 9 and its season finale on September 16. The show centers on a crew who awaken on a derelict spaceship with no memories of who they are or how they got there. Facing threats at every turn, they have to work together to survive a voyage fueled by vengeance, betrayal and hidden secrets.
