Syfy has finally opened the doors to Defiance, and we have your first look at the upcoming series (to bow in April 2013) starring Grant Bowler and Julie Benz.

Set in a dystopian future, the drama centers on humans and aliens attempting to coexist on a war-ravaged Earth that has been transformed by terra-forming machines. Jaime Murray (Ringer), Fionnula Flanagan (Lost) and Mia Kirshner (The Vampire Diaries) also co-star.

  1. We don’t get ABC Family here, but I thought it was a channel aimed at kids. Isn’t that type of show like not for kids?

  2. jason says:

    Ashley and J.P. were on the Bachelorette in 2011, not 2010. 2010 was Ali & Roberto.

  3. wordsmith says:

    Defiance seems like the most ambitious project Syfy has taken on since Battlestar Galactica. Hopefully it can live up to its potential.

  4. Mark says:

    Shahs of sunset was renewed? It was awful and this is coming from someone that watches a lot of Bravo.

  5. Ana says:

    Looking forward to Defiance. Haven’t seen Mia Kirshner on anything for a while. Glad to see Grant, Julie and Mia together on screen. That will be the only reason I’ll be watching so I hope it’s good and I hope it is promoted enough that I won’t miss the premiere. Lindsay Lohan should be paying Barbara Walters for an interview, seriously. Socio sounds disturbing and Denise Richards just seals the case for me not to watch this.

  6. Jared says:

    Liz & Dick will be the highest rated movie in Lifetime history. Say what you want about Lindsay Lohan but the girl sure knows how to bring the ratings.

  7. rikes says:

    I like the premise of socio but ABC family always goes for style over substance. Pretty young people in drama

  8. Jasper and Emily back on 90210? IT’S ABOUT TIME!
