Have you ever wanted to have the powers of Dracula, Merlin and Robin Hood? Sorry, you can't have them. But you may get to watch someone else showing off these fictional characters' skills and more.
Syfyís limited series, Ascension has been in the works since last spring. Today, we are finally seeing footage from the large ship, 50 years later. Itís large and well-lit and beautiful, but thereís also violence and terror present.
While Syfy has a slew of interesting series coming out over the next year or so, it would be remiss of everyone on Earth to think that the network had turned its back on making incredibly bizarre mash-up creature features. You know youíve all made jokes about what the next one would be, and Iím admittedly enthused to announce that the network will next destroy the world with Lavalantula!
Syfy's off-the-rails bio-thriller Helix has revealed the first look at the non-Arctic Season 2. Following in the footsteps of Speed 2: Cruise Control, this time, itís on a boat. Or at least part of it is.
Z Nation is on a completely different wavelength from Robert Kirkmanís walker-filled universe. If The Asylum made some version of 28 Days Later, this first episode, ďPuppies and Kittens,Ē would be its 28 Weeks Later, hopefully without the eventual rapey vibe.
I donít know about all science fiction fans, but Iím blown away by how many scripted genre projects Syfy is bringing to the development table. The effectiveness of the final products remains to be seen, but the network continues to aim high by adding to its slate John Scalziís Hugo Award-nominated Old Manís War and its sequel novels.
Zombie baby! Z Nation's trailer really went there! The video above made its grand debut last night during Syfy's premiere broadcast of the highly anticipated Sharknado sequel. Z Nation is Syfy's new 13-episode series, due to arrive this fall.
One of the networkís more questionable original tales is the bounty hunter adventure Killjoys, which just found its three lead characters in Aaron Ashmore (Smallville), Luke Macfarlane (Brothers and Sisters) and Hannah John-Kamen (The Hour). Will these three have enough chemistry to make you want to follow them all over the universe?
For better or worse, Season 7 kicks things off in an unpredictable way by adding a new judge and some unneeded gimmicks to ramp up the pressure on the 16 contestants vying for the top prize.
First impressions? This doesnít look much different from any other dark drama out there right now, and itís in dire need of Brad Pitt talking about plagues of madness. But it could be a lot worse.
There's nothing quite like the sound of an inspirational speech delivered by Ian Ziering that includes the words "I've been eaten." Sharknado spoiler alert: He has. It's that kind of life experience that may prove especially useful to the New Yorkers featured in Sharknado 2: The Second One. There's a storm brewing and it's full of sharks! As the trailer advises, forget the umbrella, grab a chainsaw!
There's a storm coming to New York and it's full of sharks! Syfy gave us a look at their upcoming Sharknado followup Sharknado 2: The Second One, which teaches a harsh lesson to some city commuters about the dangers of subway-riding during a Sharknado. We also get to see some tension between Sharknado returner Ian Ziering and Mark McGrath's character, who's apparently trying to date Fin's sister. Drama!
Post-apocalyptic society is becoming a recurring theme at Syfy. With Defiance set to return this Thursday night, it's particularly fitting that Dominion would be paired with it. Dystopian backdrop aside, Vaun Wilmott's new series veers far more toward supernatural than it does sci-fi, in its focus an impending celestial battle between good and evil, with mankind trapped in the middle.
If you were wondering what more of this alien populated, wild west of a world looks like, you do get a taste of the outside world during the premiere, but Defiance spends most of its first three episode reestablishing patterns and returning its characters to their former roles.
Weíre super excited for Syfyís return to spacefaring miniseries with the upcoming thriller Ascension, and weíve been eagerly anticipating some more casting news to prove that the project isnít just some Megashark-induced fever dream. Thankfully, Cougar Townís Brian Van Holt is joining the previously cast Tricia Helfer (Battlestar Galactica) for a lead role.
