Fridays this summer are about to get very interesting! Syfy and Space Channel announced a lineup that has us here at The TV Junkies very, very excited. Killjoys, Dark Matter and Wynonna Earp will all air on the same night, Fridays, this summer on both Syfy and Space Channel.
Dark Matter will premiere Friday, June 9 at 8 p.m. with back to back episodes on Syfy and Space. After the first week it will move to its 9 p.m. timeslot. 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.
Space’s new acquisition, Wynonna Earp, also returns on Friday, June 9 at 10 p.m. on Space and Syfy. The supernatural thriller follows Wyatt Earp’s great-granddaughter as she battles demons and other supernatural beings. After years away, Wynonna Earp (Melanie Scrofano) has travelled back to her home town of Purgatory to reluctantly take on the role destined for Wyatt Earp’s heir: end the family curse that has resurrected the villains her legendary ancestor dispatched—now known as Revenants. Season 1 of Wynonna Earp will air on Space Channel beginning Saturday, April 15 at 10 p.m.
Killjoys then joins the fun beginning Friday, June 30 at 8 p.m. with its Season 3 premiere on Syfy and Space. After sustaining serious personal losses, the 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.
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. It’s 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.
