As viewers get ready to head back to the Quad, we now have our first look at Season 3 of Killjoys. The first official photos from the Syfy and Space Channel series, which returns on Friday, June 30 at 8 p.m. ET, have been released. It was also announced Friday that international bionic pop artist Viktoria Modesta will guest in a role during Season. Modesta, known for cutting-edge work that explores modern identity and diversity through performance, fashion, avant-garde visuals, technology, and science, has been cast as Niko, a lethal Hackmod surgeon with killer legs and a secret crusade. Her viral hit song, Prototype, will also be featured in the episode.
“I’m a huge fan of Viktoria’s work and was blown away by her performance,” said Michelle Lovretta, Executive Producer and Creator. “I could not dream of anyone better to bring gorgeous Niko to life on Killjoys.” Also joining the Hackmod world is Tommie-Amber Pirie (Bitten) as Ollie, Emily Piggford (Hemlock Grove) as Yoki, who both have a connection to Clara (Stephanie Leonidas), who was last seen helping Johnny (Aaron Ashmore) flee the Quad; Prince Amponsah (The Entertainer) as Havigan, a respected owner of the “Hacksaw Bar” in Rat City; Sean Fowler as Cutter, a hackmodding technician by trade, and Michael Potter as The Enforcer.
Introduced in Season 2, the Hackmods are humans with cybernetic implants who were enslaved and modded in a black market workshop known as The Factory and sold to the highest bidder. Some Hackmods have managed to escape their owners and eke out a life of their own in RAT CITY, a neutral zone situated at the far end of the J Star System, where Hackmods have one another’s backs and ‘Basics’ (unmodded humans), dare not tread.
In Season 3, after sustaining serious personal losses, the trio of interplanetary bounty hunters must come together and prepare themselves for the war that lies ahead. Tension, tragedy, and an insurmountable armada of gunships loom over the Quad, as they prepare for battle against a mysterious but deadly foe.
Get a look at the eight official first-look photos from Season 3 below.
