AGENTS OF CHANGE

The space mer­ce­nar­ies of Killjoys are back for a se­cond sea­son and a new set of threats…

SFX: The Sci-Fi and Fantasy Magazine - - Red Alert -

Ev­ery­thing went to hell for our three bounty hun­ters in Killjoys’ sea­son one fi­nale. D’Avin ( Luke Mac­far­lane) was locked away in the mys­te­ri­ous Red 17 fa­cil­ity, while Dutch ( Han­nah John- Ka­men) and John ( Aaron Ash­more) watched help­lessly as Old Town was de­stroyed by the Nine. Ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer Michelle Lovretta prom­ises plenty of mys­ter­ies will un­fold as the char­ac­ters at­tempt to move on.

“As we ex­plore the ori­gin sto­ries of both Dutch and Kh­lyen ( Rob Ste­wart), and how they in­ter­sect, we re­alise in­creas­ingly a lot of what Kh­lyen has done has been his own twisted way of try­ing to pro­tect Dutch,” ex­plains Lovretta. “This sea­son, there’s that core con­flict of, ‘ I don’t know how to for­give you for the things that you’ve done, but I’m ma­ture enough to also ac­knowl­edge the good you have done for me as well.’

“Johnny has be­come a lit­tle more en­trenched in Old Town and the hu­man col­lat­eral of what be­ing a Killjoy is and their po­si­tion in the Quad,” says Lovretta. “It starts John ques­tion­ing what he stands for and whether he can stand en­tirely by Dutch and still be the man he wants to be.”

As for Old Town, Lovretta de­scribes the at­mos­phere as “pretty freak­ing dark”.

“It’s a very dif­fer­ent vibe than where we left off,” con­cludes Lovretta. “It has dif­fer­ent rules to it and our peo­ple have to nav­i­gate that sys­tem all over again. We still have Pree ( Thom Al­li­son), Alvis ( Mor­gan Kelly) and Pawter ( Sarah Power), so we have peo­ple that are emo­tion­ally at­tached to the well- be­ing of Old Town. We can clearly tell that our Killjoys are as well and feel a bit of a debt. They were ob­vi­ously in­volved in some of the shenani­gans that led to th­ese great ills.”

Killjoys sea­son two airs this sum­mer on Syfy.
