TORONTO (July 12, 2019) – Space (soon to be CTV Sci-Fi Channel) revealed today key art for the fifth and final season of its most-watched original series, KILLJOYS, premiering Friday, July 19 at 10 p.m. ET, day and date with Syfy in the U.S. The key art, available for download here, teases the current state of the Quad – controlled by an evil alien force, led by The Lady. For a peek at the high-octane in this 10-episode final season, watch the previously released trailers here and here. The new season of KILLJOYS will also be available On Demand via set-top box, the Space app, and on space.ca. Seasons 1- 4 of KILLJOYS are streaming now exclusively on Crave.
Following the shocking Season 4 cliff-hanger, the final season kicks off after the Killjoys, with Aneela’s (Hannah John-Kamen, Ant Man and the Wasp) help, succeeded in killing the Green, the repository of living memories through which the Hullen lived eternally. But instead of helping Aneela escape it, they lead The Lady (Alanna Bale, CARDINAL) into their world. Here, she harnesses her ability to control their memories in hopes of finding Jaq (Jaeden Noel, THE EXPANSE), the Hullen heir.
Returning for the final battle are our lead trio of bounty hunters with Hannah John-Kamen joined by her co-stars including Canadian Screen Award nominee for Best Lead Actor in a Drama Series Aaron Ashmore (CARDINAL) as John Jaqobis, and Luke MacFarlane (THE NIGHT SHIFT) as D’avin Jaqobis. Season 5 also sees the return of fan-favourites Thom Allison (KIM’S CONVENIENCE) as Pree; Sean Baek (THE ART OF MORE) as Fancy; Rob Stewart (THE HOT ZONE) as Khlyen; Patrick Garrow (PURE) as Turin; Kelly McCormack (DEFIANCE) as Zeph; and Mayko Nguyen (HUDSON & REX) as Delle Seyah.
“With the last chapter in this journey approaching, everyone at Space thanks all involved for delivering this inimitable series, season-after-season,” said Pat DiVittorio Vice-President, Programming, CTV and Specialty. “Congratulations to the outstanding cast and crew of this stellar Canadian production, and to our partners at Temple Street and Syfy, I can’t wait for the Killjoys to board Lucy and fire up Friday nights one more time.”
“It’s been an absolute blast working with our phenomenal cast, crew and partners at Space and Syfy on Killjoys,” said Ivan Schneeberg and David Fortier, Co-Executive Chairmen of Boat Rocker Media and Executive Producers of KILLJOYS. “As the series comes to a close, we’ve pulled out all the stops for a spectacular finale that provides our loyal fans with a suitably out-of-this-world end to this beloved franchise.”
In the season opener, “Run, Yala, Run” (Friday, July 19 at 10 p.m. ET) Dutch wakes up and realizes that The Lady has put Westerley under a collective delusion. With no memory comes a new reality. Dutch struggles to find a way to wake up her gang before it’s too late. But before she can, a new Killjoy comes into town looking for Jaq.
