“KILLJOYS has gotten what the likes of FIREFLY never got: more time to tell its story. Which is good news… because once the story arcs and relationships really started going, the series took off like a ship to the stars.” – NerdistTORONTO (December 3, 2015) – Space announced today that production has begun on Season 2 of its most-watched original series ever, KILLJOYS. Created by showrunner Michelle Lovretta (LOST GIRL) and produced by Temple Street Productions (ORPHAN BLACK) in association with Space and Syfy, the 10-episode, one-hour adventure drama is set to premiere in 2016 on Space. Shot in Toronto, the critically acclaimed ratings hit continues to follow interplanetary bounty hunters - or “killjoys” - Dutch (Hannah John-Kamen, THE HOUR), Johnny (Aaron Ashmore, SMALLVILLE), and D’avin (Luke MacFarlane, BROTHERS AND SISTERS), as they chase deadly warrants throughout the Quad, a distant planetary system on the brink of a bloody class war. Returning to direct this season are Paolo Barzman, and Peter Stebbings. New to direct this season are Martin Wood, Stefan Pleszczynski, Ruba Nadda, Jeff Renfroe and Grant Harvey. Spearheaded by Lovretta, the writing team includes Adam Barken, Jeremy Boxen, Jon Cooksey, Julian Doucet, Sean Reycraft, and Priscilla White. “Season 1 of KILLJOYS really resonated with fans and their support for this series was enormous,” said Corrie Coe, Senior Vice-President, Independent Production, Bell Media. “We’re excited to start production on Season 2, and can’t wait to work again with our incredible dynamic trio Luke, Hannah, and Aaron, and our partners at Temple Street Productions and Syfy to deliver another chapter of this unique adventure series.” “We’re thrilled to return to the Quad for a second season of KILLJOYS and continue our partnership with Space and Syfy who have been incredibly supportive partners of the series,” said Ivan Schneeberg and David Fortier, Executive Producers and co-presidents of Temple Street Productions. “Together with creator Michelle Lovretta and our talented cast and crew, we’re looking forward to delivering another intense, amped-up season to the KILLJOYS fan community.” “In the debut season, we introduced the killjoys and learned about their world, the politics of the Quad, the mysteries of the RAC, and the rich cast of characters. This season, we up the ante on the sci-fi factor, sexiness, and stakes, and answer some existing core questions while introducing new mysteries for our dynamic trio,” said Showrunner and Executive Producer, Michelle Lovretta. “This season promises to be a twisted romp, but the heart and soul of KILLJOYS remains the same - that of deep friendships and family bonds. I wouldn't have it any other way.” In Season 2, the trio is on the move to uncover Dutch’s duplicitous and mysterious childhood mentor, Khlyen’s (Rob Stewart, SUITS) secret agenda. As shocking truths are revealed, Dutch, D’avin, and Johnny realize the Quad’s notorious criminals are no match for the threat within the Reclamation Apprehension Coalition (RAC). The Killjoy’s loyalties are tested as they struggle to find the balance between politics, family, and the good of the Quad. With so much on the line, they begin to wonder if the warrant is indeed all. Season 1 of KILLJOYS culminated with an audience-high 560,000 viewers for the season finale. Throughout its run, KILLJOYS averaged nearly 450,000 viewers in its timeslot, making it Space’s most-watched original series of all time.
