Syfy has renewed two of their new series’, Dark Matter and Killjoys, for second seasons.
Both shows premiered on the network this year and will return in 2016 with new episodes for their second seasons.
Dark Matter follows six people who wake up on a derelict spaceship with no memories of who they are or how they got on board.
“With its mysterious premise and fascinating characters, Dark Matter has built an incredibly loyal, passionate and engaged fan base,” said Chris Regina, Senior Vice President, Program Strategy at Syfy. “We look forward to another out-of-the-world season from this talented creative team.”
Killjoys follows a trio of interplanetary bounty hunters who chase deadly Warrants (fugitives) throughout the Quad, a distant planetary system on the brink of a bloody class war.
“With exciting space-based action, deep world building, and a standout cast, Killjoys has struck a nerve with viewers and critics alike,” said Executive Vice President of Original Content at Syfy Bill McGoldrick on Killjoys‘ renewal. “We can’t wait to see what adventures Michelle Lovretta and Temple Street take Dutch, John and D’avin on in season two.”
Dark Matter averaged 1.8 million viewers in its first season on Syfy, while Killjoys averaged 1.5 million viewers.
The second seasons of Killjoys and Dark Matter will join a rich 2016 Syfy lineup that includes previously announced scripted series The Magicians, based on Lev Grossman’s bestselling novels; Gale Anne Hurd’s thriller Hunters, the epic 10-part drama The Expanse (premiering December 14), and a new season of 12 Monkeys, also announced today.
