For some reason, Canada’s SpaceChannel has been doing a terrific job keeping news about our show under wraps (nary a mention on either their official twitter feed or Facebook page) but I’ll just go ahead and spoil the surprise…
In Canada – Friday, June 9th at 8:00 p.m. on Space Channel.
Zoie Palmer’s Android had a number of different looks over the course of the show’s first two seasons – from blue uni to Android to the cream and white ensemble pictured above (and a couple of different undercover looks to boot). And you can expect at least a half dozen new looks for her in season 3.
In comparison to the rest of the crew, we know surprisingly little about Jodelle Ferland’s FIVE character in the time before she snuck aboard The Raza. Well, we’ll rectify that in an early season 3 episode that will offer insight into FIVE’s backstory – and a big surprise for our green haired girl.
In seasons 1 and 2, we learned that Melissa O’Neil’s TWO was created by Dwarf Star Technologies – but exactly why has never been revealed. Well, we’ll be shedding light on that particular mystery in season 3 as well.
The first two seasons saw the crew battle a number of varied enemies but, come season 3, they’ll come up against their first Big Bad in the form of Alex Mallari Jr’s Ryo Ishida. How will their past relationship with their former friend complicate matters?
As The Raza’s moral center, Roger Cross’s SIX drove the crew in a bid for redemption – one that literally blew up in their faces with the destruction of EOS-7. So how will a failed attempt to head off a corporate war influence his altruistic long game?
In season 1, it was the revelation about a long lost love. In season 2, it was the discovery of a forgotten surrogate family. In season 3, Anthony Lemke’s THREE will be blindsided by a surprise that will upend his devil-may-care persona.
Season 3 highlights include: a reveal of the Android’s origins, a time loop predicament, the return of some all-too-familiar faces, surprising shifts in allegiance, and an episode I describe as “Back to the Future meets Stranger Things“.
Dark Matter’s third season is near!
