Syfy may have lowered its titular quotient with the cancellation of Helix last week, but already the network seems to have picked up its newest high-profile series. After a lengthy development, The Magicians has finally been granted a series order, adapting Lev Grossman’s best-selling novels.
The threat of a worldwide supervirus would put anyone on edge, but the cast of Syfy’s Helix won’t have that problem for much longer. Just weeks after its second season finale, Syfy has confirmed that Ron Moore-produced viral thriller Helix has firmly been eradicated from the lineup.
We haven't kept up with Syfy's adaptation of Terry Gilliam's 12 Monkeys very much since its beginning, but the network has officially contracted a second strain. Syfy has renewed 12 Monkeys for Season 2 to air at some point in 2016, albeit with a bit of creative shuffling behind the scenes.
This Friday will see NBC airing the last of its initial 13-episode ‘Constantine’ order, certainly a worrying notion for those concerned by the network’s recent exclusion of the DC drama among multiple renewals. There may yet be hope for ‘Constantine’ however, as NBC is reportedly considering moving a second season to Syfy, and allowing a bit more creative freedom.
The Army of the ‘12 Monkeys’ will be born anew on Syfy in a matter of weeks, and whether or not you count yourself a fan of the movie-TV reboot trend, we’re hard-pressed to argue with promising early results. Check out Syfy’s new take on the Terry Gilliam-Bruce Willis classic with the first nine minutes of the new ‘12 Monkeys’ TV series!
We did it, everyone! First 'Smallville' took us back to a teenage Clark Kent's evolution into the Man of Steel, then 'Gotham' explored the origin's origins of a prepubescent Batman. Now, Syfy is officially upping the ante with writer David Goyer to create a 'Krypton' TV series, exploring the origin's origin's origin of Superman's grandpappy!
We haven't kept a very close eye on Syfy's angelic 'Legion' TV sequel 'Dominion' since its summer premiere, nor ongoing alien drama 'Defiance,' but fans of either are in for some good news. Not only will 'Dominion' return in 2015 for a second season, but so too will 'Defiance' launch a third run next year.
This past week we've had the 'Walking Dead' season 5 trailer to obsessively pore over until its October premiere, but what if we can only wait until September? See what Syfy comes up with in the first trailer for its own take on the zombie genre, as the outbreak of 'Z Nation' hits this September!
We were admittedly skeptical when Syfy announced it would adapt yet another past sci-fi property for the TV treatment with Terry Gilliam's classic '12 Monkeys,' but the new series trailer has our excitement spreading like a virus. See for yourself as Bruce Willis and Brad Pitt are pushed aside for a more serious time-travel take in Syfy's '12 Monkeys' TV series!
Conan O'Brien is growing weary of his talk-show hosting gig. The man wants to be an A-list movie star with a glitzy role in a juicy blockbuster, along with the respect of his peers and maybe even some awards acknowledgement. This, of course, is why O'Brien is starring in Syfy's 'Sharktopus vs. Pteracuda.'
