Syfy is ready to sic its Killjoys on the universe, and TVLine has your first look at the series premiere’s first four-plus minutes.
From Orphan Black‘s Temple Street Productions and Lost Girl creator Michelle Lovretta, Killjoys — premiering Friday, June 19 at 9/8c on Syfy as well as Canada’s Space — follows three interplanetary bounty hunters (or “Killjoys”) as they chase deadly fugitives throughout the Quad, a distant planetary system on the brink of a bloody class war.
Hannah John-Kamen (The Hour) stars as Dutch, a top-level Killjoy hiding a deep solemnity resulting from a dark, secret past; Aaron Ashmore (Warehouse 13, Smallville) plays John Jaqobis, a Level 3 Killjoy who, despite his profession, always prefers to wield his sarcastic wit; and Luke Macfarlane (Brothers & Sisters) fills the role of D’avin Jaqobis, a former soldier whose expertise in tactics and hand-to-hand combat make him an instant asset to the team.
In the series’ cold open above, John looks to be in a bad way, held captive and tortured for intel on the location of a bounty’s ship, until Dutch (sorta?) comes to his (possible?) rescue.
Watch the sneak peek and then tell us: Might Killjoys be your new sci-fi joy?
