The space drama will return in 2017.
September 1, 2016
Syfy announced today that Killjoys has been renewed for a third season. The good news comes a day ahead of the drama's sophomore-season finale and a year to the day after it was first renewed for a second season.
Season 2 of the Canadian-produced series has continued to perform well for the cable network, averaging 1.1 million viewers when factoring in three days of DVR viewing. The season finale airs tomorrow night, Friday, September 2 at 9:00pm.
Killjoys follows interplanetary bounty hunters chasing fugitives throughout a distant planetary system on the brink of a bloody class war. Seasons 1 and 2 of the show have consisted of 10 episodes apiece, though the number of episodes on order for Season 3 is not yet known.
Look for Killjoys to return in 2017.
Prefer Killjoys for the fast paced action, the less evil characters, and the female lead role.
As for Pawter dying she is on another show, Good Witch, and there might have been a contractual conflict between the two series. Also, D'avin is on the series Code Black every once in a while, but the last time he was there was probably his last time. His role in Kjs is much bigger and I'm sure that's where his loyalties lie.
Dark Matter, on the other hand, has had a couple weak spots where they spent a little much time on memories, but otherwise has been quite enjoyable.
It's a shame about the episode count this season tho, I hated how the two shows ended weeks apart and I was hoping they'd fix that this year. It's a really bummer too because IMO Killjoys writers have developed a cast and universe that seems to make the program really easy and fun to write for. I think if they were allowed, the writers could easily crank out a 13 or more episode season.
