Dark Matter is returning for a second season, Syfy announced Monday.

The graphic novel adaptation follows six people who wake up on a spaceship without any knowledge of how they got there. “With its mysterious premise and fascinating characters, Dark Matter has built an incredibly loyal, passionate, and engaged fan base,” Syfy’s senior vice president of program strategy Chris Regina said in a statement. “We look forward to another out-of-the-world seasom from this talented creative team.”

Syfy also announced that Killjoys — a drama about three space-based bounty hunters that first aired on Canadian TV — will be coming back for a second season. Both seasons are set to premiere in 2016.
