[Warning: General spoilers ahead.]

We’ve been excited about Killjoys since it popped onto our radar last summer when we chatted with Luke Macfarlane about his film for Hallmark. Originally slated for a winter bow, it’s now officially got an air date — Friday, June 19th, at 9/8c  — and for the first time that I’ve seen, co-promotion between Syfy and Canada’s Space.

Here’s the official series description:

From the producers of Orphan Black (Temple Street Productions) and Michelle Lovretta, the creator of Lost Girl, Killjoys follows a trio of interplanetary bounty hunters — or Killjoys — as they chase deadly Warrants (fugitives) throughout the Quad, a distant planetary system on the brink of a bloody class war.

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 self-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 this man any machine or situation, and he can fix it, build it, and fly it.

Luke Macfarlane plays D’avin Jaqobis, a handsome, rugged, sarcastic and incredibly loyal former soldier. He dreamed of enlisting in the military since boyhood, and his hard-won expertise in tactics, maneuvers, and hand-to-hand combat make him an instant asset to the Killjoy team.

The first teaser trailer went live last night — have a look and let us know what you think!
