“When the nights were long and the days were deep…” Well, if you’re a Killjoys fan like us, then you’ve had a lot of long, sleepless nights wondering what happened when Dutch (Hannah John-Kamen) and Aneela walked off together into the green in the Season 3 finale. It’s been many, many long months, but the return of Dutch and the gang is now just around the corner! Killjoys, which has already been renewed for a fifth and final season by Space Channel and SYFY, returns with a Season 4 premiere on Friday, July 20 at 10 p.m. ET on SYFY and Space. In a new trailer, just released by Space Channel on Friday afternoon, we finally got our first glimpse at new Season 4 footage.
More of a teaser than trailer, clocking in at just 30 seconds, it at least gave Killjoys fans a glimpse of the danger that may be lurking in Season 4 for Dutch. While we obviously know that Khlyen (Rob Stewart) is back for this season, since he’s narrating the teaser, we also quickly dissected the rest of the blink and you’ll miss them goodies dropped in the video. Take a look at our biggest takeaways below, and remember to stay tuned here at The TV Junkies all season long as we’ll be bringing back our weekly postmortem chats with showrunner Adam Barken.
Oh and as a quick reminder, at the end of Season 3 the Killjoys found themselves scattered to the far corners of the J Galaxy and beyond. Dutch is on a journey to face her biggest foe yet, while D’av and John are trapped in an elevator in deep space with a pregnant Delle Seyah (Mayko Nguyen). They are united by the knowledge of the name of their true enemy, The Lady, an immeasurable manifestation of evil without beginning or end. The Lady is making her play and our trio has something she wants – the Hullen Heir.
Before we go any further though, let’s have a quick refresher on that teaser:
As we mentioned, Khlyen, who if you’ll recall, Dutch and Aneela ran into at the end of Season 3 when they went into the green, seems to be telling Dutch a story. “When the nights were long and the days were deep, there lived a lovely, lonely warrior and a thief who was about to save us all,” he says. We’ve seen him do this many times before, especially to young Yala, but now he seems to be making sure and try to implore Dutch to remember how she’s going to save the Quad.
Are Dutch and Aneela separated?
While Dutch and Aneela went together into the green, from what we’re shown in the teaser, it seems like that may not last long into Season 4. In fact, the trailer has us all kinds of worried because we see Dutch, seemingly alone and possibly lost, running through the woods. Did she choose to split from Aneela? Or were they forced apart by whatever they find in the green?
Pree is in danger!
Let’s be honest, we haven’t recovered from losing Pawter (Sarah Power) and Alvis (Morgan Kelly). Please Killjoys, don’t take Pree (Thom Allison) away from us as well! We say this because there’s a very brief moment in the teaser where Pree seems to be hopefully just unconscious. We couldn’t take it if any true danger came to our favorite bar owner / ex-warlord!
Exploring New Parts of the J
One of our favorite things about the world that Killjoys has created is that there’s seemingly no end to cool and interesting places the show can take us. In the past we’ve traveled to different planets in the Quad, but it looks like we could be exploring out even further this year. The Quad is just one small part of the J Galaxy and from the looks of things, our team seems to be in some new and exciting locales in this teaser.
What happened to Dutch?
There’s a very quick glimpse in the teaser of D’avin (Luke Macfarlane) carrying Dutch. Has she been injured? Is she OK? These are things we need to know! I guess we can at least take comfort in knowing D’av and Dutch are together here, meaning that at some point the Jaqobis boys make it off that ship they were stranded on with Delle Seyah (Mayko Nguyen).
The Lady is Coming!
The Killjoys team has faced their fair share of villains in the first three season, but we’re inclined to think that the mysterious Lady that Dutch and Aneela went into the green after may be the worst one yet. Not much is known of her, but we think we get what may be a first glimpse of her in the teaser, as a cloaked figure walking in the woods. But who knows? This may all just be a diversion and it’s not the Lady at all!
Any or all of these takeaways may be incorrect, and we’re totally fine with that. However, we know one thing, July 20 can’t get here fast enough because we need to know why our Dutch is looking like this:
