Space announced today summer premiere dates for fan-favourite thriller DARK MATTER (Friday June 9 at 9 p.m. ET), and its most watched original series KILLJOYS (Friday, June 30 at 8 p.m. ET). In addition, Space revs up the summer with the acquisition of new action-packed grindhouse series BLOOD DRIVE, premiering exclusively on Space in Canada, Wednesday, June 14 at 10 p.m. ET. Below is a chronological list of Space premieres just announced. Friday, June 9 8 p.m. – DARK MATTER – Season 3 Premiere – *Two episodes back-to-back* (Then single episodes air weekly on Fridays at 9 p.m.) Based on the graphic novel created by Joseph Mallozzi and Paul Mullie, DARK MATTER centers on an intergalactic crew who awaken on a derelict spaceship with no memories of who they are or how they got there. After the EOS 7 space station is destroyed, the survivors fight to stay alive and find the rest of their crew. Wednesday, June 14 10 p.m. – BLOOD DRIVE – Series Premiere Get uncomfortable…! In the tradition of classic grindhouse movies, BLOOD DRIVE is a new series soaked in high-octane chaos and just barely approved for television. After Los Angeles’ last good cop (Alan Ritchson) is forced to join a twisted cross-country death race, his only hope of survival is a dangerous femme fatale who has the need for speed (Christina Ochoa). Oh, and forget gasoline… these cars run on human blood! The series is from Universal Cable Productions and executive producers John Hlavin (Underworld Awakening), David Straiton (BATES MOTEL) and Frederik Malmberg (Let Me In), along with producer Mark Wheeler (Becoming). James Roland (WEEDS) created the project and is a co-executive producer on the series. Friday, June 30 8 p.m. – KILLJOYS – Season 3 Premiere After sustaining serious personal losses, our trio of interplanetary bounty hunters must come together and prepare themselves for what lies ahead. Tension and tragedy loom over the J Star System as they struggle to assemble an army and prepare for battle.
