Things aren’t look­ing up for the space bounty hunters of Killjoys (2015- cur­rent), es­pe­cially af­ter the sea­son 1 fi­nale on Mon­day 23 May 2016 when the fate of the trio was left on a cliffhanger. D’avin Jaqo­bis (Luke Mac­far­lane) was kid­napped and dragged to the creepy Red 17 fa­cil­ity where sci­ence ex­per­i­ments are done, while his brother John Jaqo­bis (Aaron Ash­more) and their femme-fa­tale leader Dutch (Han­nah John-Ka­men) raced to the planet of Wester­ley to save their friends be­fore the city of Old Town was bombed. “There is a small time jump at the start of sea­son 2 and the team is fo­cussed on find­ing D’avin,” re­veals se­ries cre­ator Michelle Lovretta.


The Red 17 fa­cil­ity is a night­mar­ish lab where bad­die Kh­lyen (Rob Ste­wart) wants to use green goo to turn D’avin into a super-sol­dier. Luck­ily, John and Dutch res­cue their pal be­fore his DNA is com­pletely mu­tated, but Kh­lyen’s goo has left D’avin with some unique (and handy) abil­i­ties, like in episode 5 (21 Novem­ber) – he swaps bod­ies with Kh­lyen to com­plete a plan. But if the team thought that green goo was their only prob­lem, they’re wrong! Liam Jelco (Pascal Lang­dale) is a mil­i­tary of­fi­cer who’s mas­tered the art of ex­tract­ing info. “He be­comes a big part of what’s hap­pen­ing in Old Town,” ex­plains Michelle.


It’s not easy fight­ing bad­dies when there’s only three of you, so the trio have a lit­tle help along the way… The team meet new­comer Clara (Stephanie Leonidas, So­phie in mys­tery se­ries Amer­i­can Gothic, 2016cur­rent), who’s nick­named her cy­ber­netic weapon arm “Alice”. Re­turn­ing from sea­son 1 to help is Dr Pawter Simms (Sarah Power, Jen­nifer in Amer­i­can Gothic), as well as bar owner Pree (Thom Al­li­son, Gil in drama se­ries Pri­vate Eyes, 2016- cur­rent). NB! Killjoys was re­newed for sea­son 3, set to air 2017.
