“Oh, man, I’m fiercely in love with Aneela already, to be honest, at least my gestating S3 version of her.  She’s oddly fragile and very, very different from Dutch, so I think Hannah will get a kick out of that variety and do brilliant work with it.” Continue reading.

Space renews Killjoys for Season 3

From a media release:

– Hannah John-Kamen, Aaron Ashmore, and Luke MacFarlane return to star as the Quad’s favourite interplanetary bounty hunters –
– Production begins this winter in Toronto –
– Season 2 finale airs tomorrow night at 9 p.m. ET –

A day before the Season 2 finale and hours before a cast appearance at Canada’s largest genre convention Fan Expo, Space confirmed today that it has renewed its most-watched original series ever, KILLJOYS, committing to an additional 10, one-hour episodes. Season 3 begins production in Toronto this winter, and is expected to debut as part of Space’s popular summer lineup in 2017.

Created by showrunner Michelle Lovretta and produced by Temple Street in association with Space and Syfy, KILLJOYS follows a trio of reclamation agents – or “Killjoys” – as they get pulled further into political turmoil and the deepening mystery surrounding the Quad system, despite their vow to never take sides. Season 3 of the genre series sees the return of Hannah John-Kamen as Dutch, a stout-hearted bounty hunter with a fierce dedication to her Killjoy family, and on a quest to solve the mystery of her own identity; Aaron Ashmore as her loyal partner John, the witty tech wizard with a vulnerable heart; and Luke MacFarlane as D’avin, a born soldier who’s tactical skills and loyalty are as strong as his jawline.

Tonight at FAN EXPO in Toronto, Space presents a special advance screening of the KILLJOYS Season 2 finale at 6:30 p.m. ET in the John Bassett Theatre. Immediately following the screening, INNERSPACE hosts Ajay Fry, Teddy Wilson, and Morgan Hoffman moderate a jam-packed KILLJOYS panel with star Aaron Ashmore, cast mates Sarah Power, Rob Stewart, Thom Allison, Morgan Kelly, and Tamsen McDonough, along with showrunner Michelle Lovretta. Fans with a valid FAN EXPO pass or tickets for Thursday night have access to the panel. Admittance is first come first served. For more info on acquiring FAN EXPO tickets and passes, click here.

Season 2 of KILLJOYS on July 1 debuted with an impressive audience of 444,000, a 12% increase from Season 1. Throughout its Season 2 run, the series has reached nearly 1.1 million viewers each week and more than 3.1 million to viewers to date.

Season 1 of KILLJOYS is available now on CraveTVTM.

In the Season 2 finale of KILLJOYS “How to Kill Friends and Influence People,” (Friday, Sept. 2 at 9 p.m. ET on Space), the Killjoys and an old enemy join forces in a desperate bid to thwart Level Six’s plans for The Quad.

KILLJOYS was created by Michelle Lovretta (LOST GIRL, THE SECRET CIRCLE) who also serves as executive producer and showrunner. Executive producers are David Fortier, Ivan Schneeberg, and Karen Troubetzkoy. Universal Cable Productions distributes the series worldwide.

“Adam Barken wrote such a beautiful episode, and I’m really glad he explored Dutch and Pawter. We had a lot of great talks about those scenes — it was important to me that we allow the audience the same insight into Dutch’s heart that we writers have, not because “ew, jealousy, girl power!” but because the real answer drives her series arc.” Continue reading.

“Luke/D’avin always manages this perfect balance for Dutch in those moments, gentle but with a hint of tough love that is exactly what she needs to come back to herself. I think it comes from his battlefield experience, having to talk emotionally disoriented soldiers through the suck so they can all get home alive.” Continue reading.

From Bridget Liszewski of The TV Junkies:

Link: Killjoys: Michelle Lovretta talks “Schooled”
” This episode provided a great opportunity to dig into the Jaqobis relationship while serving an A-story mission that feels stand alone, but which ultimately moves our mythology forward in sneaky ways. In Season 1 the brother-centric scenes often dealt with the prickly baggage between them as recently reunited sibs (a theme that connects perfectly with 204s prodigal brothers). This season we get to explore more of the positive sides of their deep loyalty and love–even if both those elements are still sometimes tested.” Continue reading.
