We’re about three weeks away from the Dark Matter season 3 double episode premiere…
In the U.S. – Friday, June 9th at 8:00 p.m. on Syfy
In Australia – Saturday, June 10th on SyfyAU
In the U.K. – Monday, June 12th at 8 p.m. on SyfyUK
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!
P.S. Hey, Dark Matter fans! Do you enjoy the show’s music? Well, composer Ben Pinkerton has agreed to do a Q&A with us, so if you have some questions for him, post them in the comments section!

Sounds great! Except that picture of the “gentlemen” seems to be One short…
Questions for Ben Pinkerton: (don’t answer if already asked)
* What would be the most amazing place for you to hear your music played at?
* Use to, TV shows had big musical theme songs. Not so much anymore. What do you think about the loss of the opening identifying theme song? (example: Miami Vice, Bonanza, Brady Bunch, Young and the Restless!).
* Did you play in the school band?
* Does the gift of music run in your family?
* Do you compose in your head first then write it down, or do you work it out on the keyboard?
Thank you Ben for answering our questions. Dark Matter always sounds awesome.
I’m looking forward to another exciting season! I think I’m due for another re-watching of season two.
I am so excited for this! I love the teasers!
Questions for Ben Pinkerton:
1) I loved your music score for Lost Girl, and I was so excited to see you doing the music score for Dark Matter! What is your process on creating the “sound” for a T.V show, especially for sci-fi shows?
2) Where can I listen/find your music scores for Lost Girl and Dark Matter?
Thanks so much for your time!
@Ponytail. AnyOne in mind?
Love the teasers, thank you! We’re almost there!!!
Oh boy oh boy oh boy, almost time for the new season!

You may have a second career as a diplomat. Just sayin… =)
Lots of interesting tidbits about season 3! Even more than I was expecting, can’t wait to learn more on those backstories.
Questions for Ben Pinkerton: did you get to work with Olivia Newton John on Score? And who are your fave composers? What was the hardest ep to score in Season 3?
I just got used to having your blog to read when I got home at night, now, back to trying to remember to read it first thing. 🙂
Yay for season 3 almost upon us…
Well if you were to write a one act character show I would go for Melissa O’Neil’s character. I guess I am recovering from my TBI, but rehab for me it has been a quick 8-9 months. I have seem Robert Cross’ other work from previous programs and like his complexity. I have some time to kill so I can get myself up to speed with the reruns, a shame Sci-Fi doesn’t.
The promotional photos are awesome! 👍👍
All that’s needed now is the trailer…..
Ponytail & TheOtherOne: Keep working on him! I still believe he can bring One back from a parallel universe. (or something along those lines)
Someone just asked me about my plans for Memorial day. “What?!” That completely slipped my mind. June will be here soon!
All the characters are interesting but Two has a great back story that hasn’t been explored fully (yet).
Any big decisions made? How are the girls?
Hope you got on ok at the dentist today, Joe 😁
The promo pix are interesting – very colourful compared to Season 2’s. The crew are looking ‘different’ too…..
A couple of questions here for Ben:
At what age did you start to compose music?
What was the title of your first piece?
What instruments can you play?
Would you ever conduct a live concert of your Dark Matter (& other) music?
Ok, that was more than a couple … Sorry 😊
I too, love the theme @Jonathan mentioned in yesterday’s comments. I think I first heard it in Season 1 E9, where Three is reading ‘Charlotte’s Web’, Four is practising on his own and the others are playing cards. A low key but remarkably gentle sequence, made so memorable with a wonderful piece of music.
June 9th… on my calendar with my interview for moving to Israel. Hope it’s a good sign!
@ TheOtherOne & Tam – One thing is for sure, if anyOne can bring One back, it is the One and only Dark Matter creator himself – Joseph Malozzi. 😆
ooops….. Mr. Mallozzi (I must have been typing too fast)
I love the new cast photos. Interesting how Ryo is set apart from the rest of the crew – just a few steps back but noticeable. So excited for the new season – very interested in learning more about each characters backstory and seeing them interact. One of my favorite episodes last season was with Five & Three. Hope to see more of them interacting together.
Couldn’t wait to see the S3 promo picks. Great photos. ♥ 🙂
My guess for Three is that he fathered a child somewhere in the universe.
