When it comes to this renewal, Syfy is no killjoy.

The NBCUniversal cable network has renewed the sci-fi series Killjoys for a final two seasons, EW can confirm. The news comes just hours before the Friday night broadcast of the third season finale.

The series, created by Michelle Lovettra, has been renewed for a total of 20 episodes, spread over the course of two seasons. The fourth season will air sometime in 2018.

“Helmed by Lovretta and driven by the superb storytelling, we are excited to bring Killjoys back for two final seasons,” said Bill McGoldrick, executive vice president scripted development for NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment, in a statement. “Tonight’s game-changing season finale sets the tone for the final chapters of our bounty hunter’s space adventures and we cannot wait for our talented cast and crew to bring to life what is sure to be an epic journey that will leave our passionate fans on the edge of their seats.” 

Killjoys follows the adventures of three interplanetary bounty hunters — Dutch (Hannah John-Kamen), John Jaqobis (Aaron Ashmore), and D’avin Jaqobis (Luke MacFarlane) — just as the universe seems poised to explode into war.

“This renewal is the kind of privilege every creator hopes for — a chance to plan the end of your story with the luxury of 20 episodes to do it,” Lovretta added.

Killjoys’ renewal comes on the heels of the demise of another Syfy original series: EW can confirm that after three seasons, the network has decided not to renew Dark Matter.

Earlier this year, Syfy extended renewals to more of its original programs, including a fourth and final season for Twelve Monkeys and a third season for The Magicians.
