In the last year or so, Syfy has made a big effort to reconnect with its science fiction fan base by expanding its roster of sci-fi/fantasy programming. The network announced today that two of its new shows, Dark Matter and Killjoys, have been renewed for second seasons.
This is great news for science fiction/fantasy fans who have a lot to look forward to over the next year on Syfy. In addition to rolling out The Expanse and Childhood’s End in December 2015, both based on best-selling novels, 2016 is going to be chock full of exciting programming including:
The Magicians: based on Lev Grossma’s best-selling novels
Hunters: based on Whitley Strieber’s novel Alien Hunters
12 Monkeys: second season
Incorporated: a futuristic espionage pilot from Matt Damon and Ben Affleck
Hyperion: Dan Simmons’ Hugo Award-winning best-selling novel
Brave New World: based on the Aldous Huxley classic
Krypton: David Goyer’s Superman prequel
Gateway: based on Frederik Poh’s Hugo and Nebula award winning novel
Now Syfy just needs to renew Defiance and its slate will be complete.
