Syfy has given new seasons to two drama series. The Los Angeles Times’ Show Tracker reports that the cable channel reupped with “Defiance” and “Dominion.”
“Defiance” is a science-fiction drama set on Earth in the future, when several varieties of aliens try to co-exist with humans. The series finished its second season in August, when it rolled out along with an online game that goes by the same name.
“Dominion” is based on the 2010 film “Legion,” and just finished its first season. The show, about angels living on Earth, received mixed reviews, but has generated social-media buzz, the story notes.
The article adds: “Both renewals come ahead of a wave of new programming on the channel, which is attempting to revive its science fiction bona fides. ‘Ascension,’ about an intergalactic expedition, is set to premiere in November. ‘The Expanse,’ a space opera based on a series of novels, will premiere in 2015. A miniseries based on Arthur C. Clarke’s novel ‘Childhood’s End’ is also set to begin production.”
