Will SyFy’s Dark Matter Be The The Hard Sci Fi Show You Crave?
The SyFy channel has a lot going on this summer, with the return of Defiance and the launch of Killjoys. Not to mention the upcoming creaturefest spectacular Lavalantula. And in an attempt to out-do themselves, the new series Dark Matter also premieres this week. If you like hard sci fi, then you’re probably gonna wanna watch this one.
In case you’ve missed it, here the basic premise of the show – it focuses on the crew of a spaceship as they awaken from space travel stasis with no memory of who they are, why they’re there, or what their mission is. As they reach their destination, they have to piece together whatever it is they’re supposed to be doing, while also fighting to survive. Sounds pretty cool, huh? You can check out the trailer below.
The show debuts this Friday, June 12. And it’s cast is made up of a lot of actors who you’ll likely recognize from some of your favorite cancelled sci fi shows. Unfortunately, there are only 13 episodes for the season, but it looks like it’s going to be a good one!
And yes, this show is based on the comic book series from 2012.
