In the future, the planetary unit of the Quad, made up of the planet Qresh and its three moons, is on the verge of an interplanetary war. When someone wants someone arrested or killed, they use the Company to hire what are known as Killjoys, non-biased bounty hunters who hold no allegiance to any government, only the Company.
Killjoys compete for specific types of warrants to earn "joy," their form of currency. They only abide by their code: "The Warrant is All."
Two bounty hunters by the names of Dutch (Hannah John-Kamen) and John Jaqobis (Aaron Ashmore) pilot The Lucy (voice of Tamsen McDonough), a space craft with a snarky attitude, as they pursue warrants across the Quad, docking on the moon of Westerley, the more run down and lower class of the moons, where they frequent the bar, The Royale. They are eventually joined by John's estranged brother, D'Avin (Luke Macfarlane).
From the start of the premiere episode, it's easy to see the potential in Killjoys
. It's a fun sci-fi space adventure, which has been missing from Syfy for a while. Some people have been comparing it to the cult classic Firefly
, but although a bit of the main plot sounds similar, it's really its own unique show.
