"Praise the trees, Killjoys is back! Sass, action, spaceships, green s***, all of it! And better than ever." – threeifbyspace.netTORONTO (September 1, 2016) – A day before the Season 2 finale and hours before a cast appearance at Canada’s largest genre convention Fan Expo, Space confirmed today that it has renewed its most-watched original series ever, KILLJOYS, committing to an additional 10, one-hour episodes. Season 3 begins production in Toronto this winter, and is expected to debut as part of Space’s popular summer lineup in 2017. Created by showrunner Michelle Lovretta and produced by Temple Street in association with Space and Syfy, KILLJOYS follows a trio of reclamation agents - or “Killjoys” - as they get pulled further into political turmoil and the deepening mystery surrounding the Quad system, despite their vow to never take sides. Season 3 of the genre series sees the return of Hannah John-Kamen as Dutch, a stout-hearted bounty hunter with a fierce dedication to her Killjoy family, and on a quest to solve the mystery of her own identity; Aaron Ashmore as her loyal partner John, the witty tech wizard with a vulnerable heart; and Luke MacFarlane as D’avin, a born soldier who’s tactical skills and loyalty are as strong as his jawline. “KILLJOYS is one of Space's cornerstone programs and we're thrilled to deliver a third season to the summer schedule,” said Mike Cosentino, Senior Vice-President, CTV and Specialty. “We're looking forward to the expanding the universe with more engaging stories, characters, and action." “We join fans worldwide in the excitement of knowing Dutch's, John's and D’avin’s journey will continue for another season,” said David Fortier and Ivan Schneeberg, Executive Producers of KILLJOYS and Co-Presidents of Boat Rocker Studios. “We are very proud of the unique place KILLJOYS occupies in the sci-fi world, thanks to Michelle’s voice and our incredible producers, cast and crew. KILLJOYS is a true pleasure to produce, and we’re thankful to our partners at Space and Syfy for loving the show just as much as we do and for allowing this incredible ride to continue.” Tonight at FAN EXPO in Toronto, Space presents a special advance screening of the KILLJOYS Season 2 finale at 6:30 p.m. ET in the John Bassett Theatre.
