Space Original Series Killjoys Premieres June 19th
A new generation of bad-ass bounty hunters are taking over the galaxy as Space premieres the new original Canadian action adventure series Killjoys starting on Friday, June 19th at 9pm.
Created by showrunner Michelle Lovretta (Lost Girl) and produced by Temple Street Productions, Killjoys follows a trio of reclamation agents – or “Killjoys” – as they chase deadly warrants throughout the Quad, a distant planetary system on the brink of a bloody, class war. The 10-episode, one-hour series will also air simultaneously in the U.S. on Syfy.
Leading the Killjoys team is Dutch (Hannah John-Kamen, Viva Forever), a gorgeous, former assassin with a complicated past; her loyal partner John (Aaron Ashmore, Smallville), a witty, technical wizard with a vulnerable heart; and his estranged brother D’avin (Luke Macfarlane, Brothers & Sisters), an elite soldier with an expertise in combat tactics. Together, the three Killjoys form a highly accomplished team of bounty hunters, each with distinct and valuable specialties to offer as they navigate the culturally rich, politically complex, and economically polarized worlds of The Quad. As previously announced, Canadian genre icon Amanda Tapping guest stars as a fiercely clever scientist, whose charismatic charm keeps her true intentions concealed from the Killjoys.
In the series premiere of Killjoys, “Bangarang” (Friday, June 19th at 9pm) Killjoys Dutch and John are in serious need of R&R after capturing a dangerous smuggler in the badlands of Westerley. But when a death warrant is posted for D’avin, John secretly takes the job to save his estranged brother. With a competing Killjoy also on the job, the team is in a race against time to clear D’avin’s name and their own.
