Space, Syfy, and Temple Street announced recently 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.
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; and Karen LeBlanc (Motive) as Banyon, a new high-ranking RAC official.
“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 of Independent Production at Bell Media, in a media release. “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.
