'Defiance' Season 2 ordered by Syfy - 13 new episodes on the way
"Defiance" is getting a second season. Syfy sent out a press release announcing that the next 13 episodes of the series will start shooting in August in Toronto.
Only five episodes of the new science fiction series have premiered thus far, and it's already accumulated a strong audience. Zap2it felt that fans of "Battlestar Galactica" and "Firefly" would be drawn to this show, and it seems enough people have found the project since its April 15 premiere to warrant a renewal.
"Bringing the rich world of Defiance to life has been in incredible team effort. We couldn't ask for better partners than Kevin Murphy, his amazing cast and crew, and Trion Worlds," Syfy's President of Original Content, Kevin Murphy, says in a press release.
Kevin Murphy will return as showrunner. "Defiance" stars Grant Bowler and Julie Benz. Season 2 is set for a 2014 premiere.
