Spaceships back on Syfy?!
Here’s the new trailer for Syfy’s upcoming major drama series Defiance, which not only returns a few star ships to the network, but also gives us giant muscular blue guys, battle mechs, some strange religious group and a whole lot of other elements we don’t quite understand yet, but sure look intriguing, wrapped up in a post-apocalyptic neo-Western setting.
Defiance is both a show and an online video game (details below and more photos below) that’s set amid the ruins of St. Louis following the arrival of seven races of aliens. The result, especially with the song featured in this new trailer (“Preacher” by Jamie N Commons), almost has a Firefly vibe.
The series also just got an official premiere date: Monday, April 15 at 9 p.m. with a two-hour debut.
Here’s the new trailer for Defiance, executive produced by Kevin Murphy (Desperate Housewives, Caprica) and Michael Taylor (Battlestar Galactica) and stars Grant Bowler, Julie Benz and Stephanie Leonidas (who’s sporting a bit of Leeloo look).
