On June 19th Defiance will be back for it second season. As a teaser Syfy released no less than 25 high resolution character portraits to drool over. I found myself instantly awaiting the new season with renewed hope. Defiance has managed to build a small loyal fan base after its somewhat rocky first season. Some call it a miracle that it even got a second as Syfy Channel is notorious for cancelling fan favorites. Nonetheless the show from Farscape creator Rockne S. O’Bannon will get 13 more episodes before fans have to worry again. Not much is known about season 2, the first season ended on a major cliffhanger but there seems to be no hint of that with the character portraits. Also Linda Hamilton who will guest star is not featured. We will have to wait until June 19th to how everything unfolds. Below you can read the synopsis for season 2.
As the story of Defiance resumes, the lives of the townspeople are in drastic turmoil. The Earth Republic has assumed control of the town, with far-reaching consequences including a new mayor. Nolan (Grant Bowler) traverses the badlands to find a lost Irisa (Stephanie Leonidas), Amanda (Julie Benz) has an unexpected new role in the town as she searches for Kenya and the Tarr family desperately tries to keep control of their criminal empire in the midst of dramatic changes. Joining the cast this season are James Murray as new mayor Niles Pottinger, Anna Hopkins as Earth Republic soldier Jessica “Berlin” Rai and William Atherton as Earth Republic official Viceroy Mercado.
