From a media release:
Space, Syfy, and Temple Street announced today the casting of international bionic pop artist Viktoria Modesta in a guest role in Season 3 of KILLJOYS. Modesta, whose cutting-edge work explores modern identity and diversity through performance, fashion, avant-garde visuals, technology, and science, has been cast as Niko, a lethal Hackmod surgeon with killer legs and a secret crusade. Modesta’s viral hit song, Prototype, will also be featured in the episode. Season 3 of Space most-watched original series premieres Friday, June 30 at 8 p.m. ET, with catch-up on Space.ca and Space GO.
Also joining the Hackmod world is Tommie-Amber Pirie (BITTEN) as Ollie, and Emily Piggford (HEMLOCK GROVE) as Yoki, who both have a connection to Clara, who was last seen helping Johnny flee the Quad; Prince Amponsah (The Entertainer) as Havigan, a respected owner of the “Hacksaw Bar” in RAT CITY; Sean Fowler as Cutter, a hackmodding technician by trade, and Michael Potter as The Enforcer.
Introduced in Season 2, the Hackmods are humans with cybernetic implants who were enslaved and modded in a black market workshop known as The Factory and sold to the highest bidder. Some Hackmods have managed to escape their owners and eke out a life of their own in RAT CITY, a neutral zone situated at the far end of the J Star System, where Hackmods have one another’s backs and ‘Basics’ (unmodded humans), dare not tread.
Also revealed today are eight official first-look photos of KILLJOYS’ upcoming third season. Each episodic image offers clues to what unfolds in the much-anticipated return of Space’s most-watched original series.
