Syfy has announced today the pickup of seasons four and five – the final two seasons — of the sci-fi adventure series “Killjoys.” The order is for 10 new episodes each season – 20 in total – and the news comes on the heels of the season three finale.
From Temple Street, a division of Boat Rocker Studios, and Universal Cable Productions (UCP), “Killjoys” follows a trio of interplanetary bounty hunters – rebel leader Dutch (Hannah John-Kamen), tech-savvy John Jaqobis (Aaron Ashmore), and tactical D’avin Jaqobis (Luke MacFarlane) – on the brink of a multiplanetary war. Creator Michelle Lovretta serves as executive producer along with Karen Troubetzkoy and Temple Street’sS David Fortier and Ivan Schneeberg. Season four is set to air in 2018.
“A final two-season order is a huge vote of confidence for a show that keeps getting better and better,” said Fortier and Schneeberg, Co-Presidents of Boat Rocker Studios and executive producers of “Killjoys.” “We are so proud of the support “Killjoys” has received from critics and fans alike, and are thrilled to plan a deserving ending for Dutch and the Jaqobis brothers; it has been an incredible intergalactic journey and we could not have wished for better partners to share the ride.”
“Killjoys” is part of SYFY’s original line-up of dramas including “The Magicians,” “The Expanse,” “The Channel Zero Anthology” and “12 Monkeys.” Upcoming series include “Happy,” starring Christopher Meloni, and the Superman original story “Krypton.”
