As much as it pains us to say, the end of Killjoys will soon be upon us. The fifth and final season of the SYFY and Space Channel space adventure series premieres on Friday, July 19 at 10 p.m. ET. If you’re anything like us here at The TV Junkies, then you’re not prepared to say goodbye just yet to space bounty hunters Dutch (Hannah John-Kamen), Johnny (Aaron Ashmore) and D’avin (Luke Macfarlane) as they prepare to face their biggest enemy yet, The Lady.
When approaching the final season, showrunner Adam Barken said “there was certainly a feeling of ‘what do we have to pay off? What have we promised in the past?’” while we were on a set visit last summer during filming of Season 5. When SYFY and Space renewed Killjoys for Season 4, they also renewed it for Season 5, allowing the writers, actors and everyone involved with the show to give it a proper ending. This was something that John-Kamen said was especially nice because it allowed for “a wonderful kind of closure because we know that we’re going to say goodbye to the show.”
