Link: Killjoys: 13 Things We Learned on the set of Season 4
We may already be in the dog days of summer, but things are about to get hotter with a brand new season of Killjoys.

Life in the Quad has gotten pretty complicated thanks to the Hullen and the real villain behind it all, the Lady. Dutch and Aneela, both played by Ant-Man and the Wasp star Hannah John-Kamen, are inside the Green now. Meanwhile, D’avin (Luke Macfarlane), an injured Johnny (Aaron Ashmore), and a very pregnant Delle Seyah (Mayko Nguyen) have their own issues to deal with floating around endlessly in space. Continue reading.

From Charles Trapunski of Brief Take:

Link: Interview: Killjoys’ Hannah John-Kamen
“The leader of the pack of Team Awesome Force. [giggles] What’s awesome is that Dutch gets to be the leader of Team Awesome Force, but also, she has her own faults and her own past and her past is what’s made her strong. This kind of strong person and vulnerability, they kind of walk hand in hand with Dutch and with Aneela as well.” Continue reading.

Link: Previewing the Killjoys Season 4 premiere with Hannah John-Kamen and Aaron Ashmore
Just two more sleeps until Season 4 of Killjoys lands on our TVs and your patience will definitely be rewarded. Promise swear. The season premiere takes a pause of sorts on last season’s finale and instead delivers a delicious Dutch and John flashback tale wrapped within the current timeline. Continue reading.

From Dale McGarrigle of TV Fanatic:

Link: Killjoys’ Aaron Ashmore Q&A
“I wouldn’t say that he’s always been that confident. I think finding his role, being the tech guy and D’avin and Dutch so reliant on him and being so respectful of what he can do; I think that’s what caused it.” Continue reading.

From Norman Wilner of Now Toronto:

Link: Two Canadian shows expand queer representation in sci-fi
When Wynonna Earp and Killjoys return for their new seasons Friday night, they’re not just bringing goofy genre television back to Space. The two shows – created by Emily Andras and Michelle Lovretta, respectively – are not-so-quietly expanding the horizons of queer representation in fantasy.

And they’re doing it without killing anybody. Continue reading.

From Kevin Phinney of Metro Source:

Link: “Killjoys” Season 4 is a thrill ride through the non-binary galaxy
From the very beginning, Killjoys creator Michelle Lovretta has remained committed to building a world populated with all genders and orientations. From non-binary bartender/warlord Pree to royal villain/anti-hero Delle Seyah Kendry and beyond, gay lives and relationships have been given the same dramatic weight, focus and humour as any other — and never merely as victims or cannon fodder for straight characters’ “emotional growth.” Continue reading. 

From Kelly Lawler of USA Today:

Link: Why you should add Syfy’s ‘Wynonna Earp’ and ‘Killjoys’ to your watch list
Both are genre stories, obviously, but each has a female lead, quirky sidekicks and a knack for mixing action, humor, pathos and romance. They’re also lighthearted and character-driven enough that if you don’t feel like wading into their mythologies, you can simply enjoy the relationships and the humor. To be honest, I’m still confused by the magic green goo that’s the most important plot point on “Killjoys,” but I love it just the same.  Continue reading.

From Charles Trapunski of Brief Take:

Interview: Killjoys’ Luke McFarlane
“Much of the journey for D’avin in the whole show is really about making amends, and in so many ways, I think that he’s a character that’s gone on one of the most personal and emotional arcs, from the man he was to the man who is trying to become.” Continue reading.
