The television side of the Defiance experience is being renewed for a second season, Syfy announced today.
The second season will consist of 13 episodes, with production beginning in August geared toward a 2014 premiere. Like Trion Worlds’ PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 MMO-shooter, the game is set in 2046 in a post-invasion America. While the game takes place in San Francisco, the television show is set in St. Louis, Missouri.
“Bringing the rich world of Defiance to life has been an incredible team effort,” said Mark Stern, president of Original Content for SyFy. “We couldn’t ask for better partners than Kevin Murphy, his amazing cast and crew, and Trion Worlds. We can’t wait to see where they take us in the second season.”
