Syfy is kicking off the 4th of July weekend with a bang: the sophomore seasons of Killjoys and Dark Matter will kick off on Friday, July 1st.

Leading off the night is Killjoys at 9/8c, which follows a group of interplanetary bounty hunters. In Season 2, Dutch (Hannah John-Kamen), Johnny (Aaron Ashmore) and D’avin (Luke MacFarlane) attempt to uncover Khlyen’s (Rob Stewart) secrets—which is complicated by the fact that he was formerly Dutch’s mentor. As dangerous as the Quad’s criminals are, the trio realize the biggest threat could be within the Reclamation Apprehension Coalition.

Then, at 10/9c, Dark Matter returns, as the crew of the spaceship, Raza–who started off the series with no memory of who they were or how they came to be on the ship–gets involved in an intergalactic conspiracy, as they search for a device that could prove vital in the upcoming war.  Dark Matter stars Marc Bendavid (One), Melissa O’Neil (Two), Anthony Lemke (Three), Alex Mallari Jr. (Four), Jodelle Ferland (Five), Roger Cross (Six) and Zoie Palmer (The Android). Additionally, Game of Thrones‘ Melanie Liburd has joined the cast as a series regular. (And if you missed Dark Matter Season 1, the freshman year will be released on DVD on June 14.)
