Link: Vagrant Queen proves nothing’s gonna stop this trio
Throughout its first two episodes, SYFY’s Vagrant Queen has already made it abundantly clear that it never takes itself too seriously, is always down for a joke, and is ready to subvert whatever viewers think they know about the space genre. Continue reading.

From Bridget Liszewski of The TV Junkies:

Link: Vagrant Queen brings an all-female lens to the space opera
“We don’t have enough female voices in genre, in action, and in sci-fi. So it was very important for me, when I was put in this position of power as a showrunner, to amplify those voices.” Continue reading.

From Bridget Liszewski of The TV Junkies:

Link: Vagrant Queen’s Adriyan Rae on what it was like tackling the role of a badass space queen
“I was really interested in being a part of something that had a black female lead who was badass and is not defined by her sexuality. She’s just this badass character who pushes the envelope and is looking for her mom. It really resonated with me.” Continue reading.

From Josh Bell of CBR:

Link: Vagrant Queen is a fun, scrappy space adventure
The low-fi feel is part of the show’s charm, and the characters often joke about how unreliable their equipment is. The Winnipeg is constantly breaking down and losing parts, and the heroes’ blasters are always running out of batteries when they need them most. Continue reading.

From Bridget Liszewski of The TV Junkies:

Link: Vagrant Queen: Tim Rozon’s comedic skills shine in his goofiest role yet
“When Vagrant Queen came along, I was in Florida. I drove up to Orlando to do a self tape and loved the audition.

I can do this.’” Continue reading.

Link: ‘Vagrant Queen’ is the diverse, queer show the sci-fi world needs right now
“We were excited to tell this sort of more intimate story about this former queen going on a rescue mission, and it not being a story about necessarily good and evil, monarchy versus the revolution.

From Eric Amaya of Rotten Tomatoes:

Link: Vagrant Queen: Your new Guardians of the Galaxy-style TV obsession

Link: Interview: Vagrant Queen’s Adriyan Rae
“It’s my dream role and I’m surrounded by amazing people, from Jem [Garrard] to my castmates, to the cameramen, to the grip, to all the cast and crew. It’s a story of how equality is equality, love is love, how it’s okay to be a free thinker, it empowers women, it’s woke without pushing it down your throat, it’s entertaining while still funny and it will still pull on your heartstrings.” Continue reading.

From Bridget Liszewski of The TV Junkies:

Link: Vagrant Queen’s Alex McGregor on what draws everyone to Amae
“She’s really good at heart and has a lightness about her that shines through. People often confide in her because she’s so open. She loves people and is open to any alien or being. I feel that she’s like a therapist in many ways because people that generally wouldn’t be speaking about their issues do so with her.” Continue reading.
