While not all of Syfy’s shows are going to be continuing, we’ve learned that the network has picked up Seasons 4 and 5 of ‘Killjoys‘ to finish off the series. These last two seasons will consist of a combined 20 episodes to conclude the story of Hannah John-Kamen’s Dutch, Aaron Ashmore’s John Jaqobis, and Luke MacFarlane’s D’avin Jaqobis. These bounty hunters turned rebels are at the epicenter of what looks to be an area of space “on the brink of a multi-planetary war.”
According to Executive Vice President Scripted Development for NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment Bill McGoldrick:
“Helmed by Lovretta and driven by the superb storytelling, we are excited to bring KILLJOYS back for two final seasons. Tonight’s game-changing season finale sets the tone for the final chapters of our bounty hunter’s space adventures and we cannot wait for our talented cast and crew to bring to life what is sure to be an epic journey that will leave our passionate fans on the edge of their seats.”
In the press release co-presidents of Boat Rocker Studios and executive producers of the show, David Fortier and Ivan Schneeberg added:
“A final two-season order is a huge vote of confidence for a show that keeps getting better and better. We are so proud of the support KILLJOYS has received from critics and fans alike, and are thrilled to plan a deserving ending for Dutch and the Jaqobis brothers; it has been an incredible intergalactic journey, and we could not have wished for better partners to share the ride.”
Honestly, anyone who has been watching the series would probably have the same confidence as what started out looking like it could just be another series has ended up with an excellent and enjoyable plot. Finally, creator Michelle Lovretta said:
“This renewal is the kind of privilege every creator hopes for – a chance to plan the end of your story with the luxury of 20-episodes to do it. I’m immensely grateful that both of our network partners – along with Temple Street and UCP – have given our team, cast and fans this incredible opportunity.”

I’m sure fans will be thrilled that the show will deliver full closure unlike some of Syfy’s other recent venture.
