If you love Orphan Black, here’s the scoop on another show that will feed your paranormal appetite.
From the producers of Orphan Black and written by Lost Girl creator Michelle Lovretta, Killjoys follows a trio of interplanetary bounty hunters dubbed “Killjoys” – as they chase deadly warrants throughout the Quad, a distant planetary system on the brink of a bloody, class war.
The show cast will include Aaron Ashmore (Warehouse 13), Luke Macfarlane (Brothers & Sisters) and British actress Hannah John-Kamen (The Hour).
Hannah John-Kamen stars as the gorgeous, complicated, and deadly Dutch. A top-level Killjoy, she’s a much loved and charming presence in her community, with a unique gift for earning people’s trust and respect regardless of their class. Under her banter and protective flirtations, there is pain, maturity, and a deep solemnity resulting from a dark secret past.
Aaron Ashmore takes on the role of John Jaqobis, a Level 3 Killjoy who, despite his profession, is a peacemaker who hates conflict. Cheerful and kind-hearted, John prefers not to fight, but his sarcastic wit has put him into the fray enough over the years to teach him how to do it well, and dirty. Give John any machine or situation, and he can fix it, build it, and fly it.
Luke Macfarlane plays as D’avin, a handsome, rugged, sarcastic, and incredibly loyal former soldier. Dreaming of enlisting in the military since boyhood, his expertise in tactics, manoeuvres, and hand-to-hand combat make him an instant asset to the Killjoy team.
With additional casting still to be announced, Killjoys is set to premiere in 2015 on Space and Syfy with production kicking off August 5 in Toronto.
