Amid all the many network upfront presentations of the week, today saw NBC and Universal holding their cable expo to promote the likes of Syfy and USA. Among the new series glimpsed, 'Legion' TV sequel drama 'Dominion' finally got its first full angelic trailer, while the network also offered a glimpse at 'Battlestar Galactica' vet Tricia Helfer's creepy new retro sci-fi drama 'Ascension.'
It's been a busy day for Syfy, which has seen everything from an obvious third installment in the 'Sharknado' franchise to a new sci-fi vehicle for 'Battlestar Galactica' vet Tricia Helfer, but some of the more intriguing announcements stem from our favorite comics and books. Who's ready for Syfy adaptations of time-travel war comic 'Pax Romana,' Frank Miller's trippy 'Ronin,' 'Walking Dead' creator Robert Kirkman's 'Clone,' and more?
In the grand tradition of 'The Godfather,' 'Star Wars' and 'Back to the Future,' Syfy ordered a 'Sharknado 3' because you just can't do an epic proper justice unless you make it into a trilogy, thus cementing (or forcefully trying to demand by default) its proper place in classic cinema.
Syfy has been on a kick of late with cannibalizing cult sci-fi films for TV options, the latest of which, 'Dominion,' derives from 2010 angel thriller 'Legion.' We saw a few short promos of the new sequel series drama before, but now the war has officially erupted anew in the full 'Dominion' trailer and photo set, chock full of angels, bullets and good old-fashioned scripture (not really).
We've seen the Syfy development wheels turning a bit of late with last week's official pickup of the TV-adapted '12 Monkeys,' but this might be the cable network's most intriguing prospect yet. Syfy will follow 'The Walking Dead' into zombie land with a series order for 'Z Nation,' its own corner of the apocalypse that borrows a few pages from 'World War Z,' as well.
We've only kept up with Ron Moore's Syfy return thriller 'Helix' so much since its premiere, but with the first season finale upon us, the cable network has decided it won't be the last. The viral thriller has officially been renewed for a second season to air in winter 2015, but will anything be different about 'Helix' season 2?
We'll admit to not following Syfy's 'Being Human' remake of the UK series bearing the same name, though this is certainly a surprise. The cable network has revealed that season 4 will mark the end of its Sam Witwer-Meaghan Rath-Sam Huntington supernatural drama, but will the final episodes bring the series to an effective close?
The ever-ravenous success of comic-adapted series like 'The Walking Dead' and 'Arrow' predictably sent TV networks in a scramble to adapt the most popular original projects, but count us genuinely excited for this one. Syfy has partnered with DC Comics to bring us a TV adaptation of modern-day civil war comic 'DMZ,' with some major producing power attached!
Syfy's forthcoming 'Legion'-based TV series, 'Dominion,' has only conjured up brief footage and a photo to date, but with all of the movie's angels declaring war on man, how long could we wait until Syfy premiered a proper trailer? Take a look at the epic war between man and the forces above in our best look yet at 'Dominion'!
A few weeks ago we caught our first look at Syfy's forthcoming 'Legion' TV series 'Dominion' with a promotional trailer and release date, though the promo spot had relatively little to show in the way of characters. That all changes with the first promotional still from the series, featuring leading man Christopher Egan, 'LOST''s Alan Dale, and 'Buffy''s Anthony Stewart Head!
