TORONTO (February 6, 2017) – Space, Syfy, and Temple Street announced today that production is underway on Season 3 of their epic sci-fi adventure series KILLJOYS. Created by showrunner Michelle Lovretta (LOST GIRL), the 10-episode, one-hour Space original series sees the return of the heroic trio: Hannah John-Kamen as fierce rebel leader Dutch, Aaron Ashmore as the determined and tech-savvy John Jaqobis, and Luke MacFarlane as the steadfast and tactical D’avin Jaqobis. Set to return to Space this year in Canada and Syfy in the U.S., KILLJOYS is currently filming in Toronto.

Listed as one of “Variety’s 25 Best Returning Shows of 2016”, KILLJOYS is a hit with critics and viewers alike. Currently the most-watched original series on Space, Season 2 of KILLJOYS reached nearly 1.1 million viewers each week in its initial run.

Also returning to KILLJOYS this season are fan-favourites Thom Allison (KIM’S CONVENIENCE) as loveable bartender and former warlord Pree; Sean Baek (THE ART OF MORE) as level six Fancy; and Patrick Garrow (PURE) as senior RAC officer Turin. Joining the cast this season are Kelly McCormack (DEFIANCE) as Zeph, a new thorn in the team’s side; Karen LeBlanc (MOTIVE) as Banyon, a new high-ranking RAC official; Ted Atherton (THE EXPANSE) as Gander, lieutenant to Aneela; and Prince Amponsah (The Entertainer) as Havigan, a tough and respected owner of a hackmod bar. Guest stars this season include Saamer Usmani (REIGN) as Flik, Mac Fyfe (SAVING HOPE) as Lachlan, and Atticus Mitchell (YOUNG DRUNK PUNK) as Pippin. Additional KILLJOYS casting will be announced in the coming weeks.

“Last season’s finale of KILLJOYS was so gripping that it left our devoted fan base hungry for more,” said Corrie Coe, Senior Vice-President, Independent Production, Bell Media. “With Lovretta’s layered storylines, the incredible chemistry of our lead trio, and Temple Street’s skillful production, this season is poised to top the best-of lists for critics and fans alike.”

“Temple Street, along with the writers, are incredibly excited by the upcoming KILLJOYS storyline and the new characters audiences will meet this season,” said David Fortier and Ivan Schneeberg, Co-Presidents of Temple Street and Executive Producers of KILLJOYS. “Michelle Lovretta and the cast led by Hannah, Aaron and Luke have brought to life intriguing characters and story arcs that continue to engage audiences across the globe. We are thrilled for fans to see where Season 3 takes our crew of interplanetary bounty hunters.”

In Season 3 of KILLJOYS, war looms over the J Star System. After sustaining serious personal loss, Dutch, Johnny, and D’avin prepare themselves for what lies ahead. While the trio struggles to assemble an army, a dangerous force – Aneela – heads towards them. The unhinged daughter of Dutch’s late mentor Khlyen, Aneela is hell-bent on revenge for the death of her father. The team’s toughest challenge yet, and perhaps Dutch’s only hope of stopping Aneela, includes convincing a motley gang of bounty hunters to go from believing “The Warrant is All” to “The War is All.”

Season 1 of KILLJOYS is streaming now exclusively on CraveTV™.
