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.
The Summer TV season is upon us. With new shows like Extant, Rush and Tyrant -- among others -- joining the lineup, and returning series like True Blood, Doctor Who, Under the Dome, Defiance and Graceland lined up, TV has plenty to offer us this summer.
Last Spring, Amazon Prime secured a deal with NBCUniversal that included exclusive streaming access to Syfy's futuristic drama series Defiance, which they promised would be made available to their Streaming subscribers sometime early this year. And sure enough, Defiance has arrived!
Syfy’s Defiance hit the network’s schedule this spring with a bang, pulling in great ratings (at least for Syfy’s recent standards) and putting the powerful in the network’s Powerful Mondays programming block. The show will be returning for a second season, but new episodes aren’t expected to hit the schedule until sometime in 2014. The good news is that we won’t have to wait too long to revisit episodes of the series. Defiance: Season 1 will hit Blu-ray and DVD on October 15, 2013.
With a successful game, a second season order and an obsessive fanbase, SyFy’s Defiance accomplished quite a bit in its only season. Fortunately or unfortunately, however, the show would seem to be in quite a bit of flux. Major, republic-altering things happened during the past few episodes, and nothing about the town of Defiance will ever quite be the same.
We’re ten episodes into the first season of Defiance, and I’m mentally all-in. With wasteland backgrounds that may have been stolen from Wristcutters: A Love Story and story arcs that definitely were stolen from Philip K Dick’s dream journal, the show is a sci-fi explosion of big ideas, overly dramatic dialogue and impressive make-up jobs. I started watching because my wife was interested, but I’ve continued watching because I’m genuinely down, or at least, I thought I was until something extremely unexpected happened last week
Syfy viewers attending Comic Con this year will have the opportunity to attend panels for four of the network's series, three of which you may have seen and one that's on the way, courtesy of Ronald D. Moore. Set to be featured in panels at Comic Con in San Diego next month are Defiance, Helix, Being Human and Moore's upcoming new series Helix. Unlike most of the announcements we've heard so far, Syfy actually has specific details on where their panels are taking place at SDDC, as well as what time.
Warehouse 13 has been slowly but steadily slipping in the ratings since its big, 3.5 million viewer debut in 2009. The Syfy series, which follows secret service agents retrieving supernatural artifacts, is now in its fourth season at the network and on Friday Syfy announced the show would return for a fifth season. While that’s good news, it could be better news.
Great news has come down the pipeline from Syfy this morning. Fans of the network’s new show, Defiance, should be pleased to learn the network has announced that the humans, Irathients, Castithans and more occupying the town of Defiance will be back for a second season. The network is renewing Defiance for 13 more episodes, set to air in 2014.
Syfy's Defiance has been one of the more hotly anticipated new series on sci-fi fans radars these days, and based on the ratings, it looks like many of those fans turned up for the series premiere. Defiance debuted on Syfy last night, filling in the space recently vacated by Being Human, which just wrapped up its third season last week. The new series performed well last night, managing to become Syfy's most-watched scripted series premiere among Adults 18-49 since Eureka debuted back in 2006.
Syfy is kicking off its newest original series tonight at 9 p.m. ET. Defiance is a drama set far into the future where humans and aliens intermix. To celebrate the show's premiere, Syfy is posting behind-the-scenes clips every hour until 5 p.m. ET. In the first, Grant Bowler discusses a bit about his character’s story arc prior to the beginning of Defiance.
We've had a long time to anticipate the arrival of Syfy's new drama series Defiance, and in that time, many of us have likely set our expectations high for what will hopefully be a new must-watch original sci-fi drama for the cable channel. The series premiere does not disappoint, bringing us into a story about human and alien characters who are trying to co-exist in a city that was once St. Louis and is now known as Defiance.
In less than a month, Syfy will debut their new series Defiance, a sci-fi TV drama that's paired with a video game, giving fans the opportunity to explore the story from two different mediums. The latest trailer focuses on the "town" of Defiance, a location set in what's left of St. Louis at some point in the near future after a universal war has left the landscape altered and mankind co-existing with aliens in a newly built society. If the series looks half as exciting as the trailer, I think we're in for something really great.
Coming up in April, Syfy's Defiance will premiere, along with the video game which will interconnect the world between two mediums, for those TV viewers who also also manage to find time to do a bit of gaming. And for those of us who prefer one over the other, we hear the series and video game will work independently enough so that you aren't required to follow one in order to follow the other. That's thinking a bit ahead though. For now, what we really have to look forward to is a sci-fi series on Syfy.
If you were watching Syfy last night, you may have caught the premiere of the promising new time travel drama Continuum. Joining the Canadian import among Syfy's new science fiction offerings later this year is Defiance and original series (paired with a video game) that focusses on man's attempt to co-exist with various alien races on a transformed earth.
