Defiance TV Show Renewed for Second Season

by on May 13, 2013

Great news for fans of the Defiance TV show, as despite being less than half-way through the first season, Syfy have renewed it for a second season, consisting of 13 episodes. This follows the news that the game has over one million registered accounts, and will be getting five DLC updates this year.

“Bringing the rich world of Defiance to life has been in incredible team effort.  We couldn’t ask for better partners than Kevin Murphy, his amazing cast and crew, and Trion Worlds,” said Mark Stern, President of Original Content for Syfy and Co-Head of Original Content for UCP. “We can’t wait to see where they take us in the second season.”

The premiere grabbed 4 million viewers, making it Syfy’s highest rated original series this year, in the adults 18-49, adults 25-54, and total viewers areas. Defiance isn’t a bad game, either, as our review attests.

I enjoyed the first episode, but after the second, I’ve already fallen behind. Whether that’s because the second episode was less enjoyable, or I’ve just been super-busy, I’m not sure. Hopefully there’s still time to catch up. Have you been watching and enjoying it, let us know in the comment section!

Defiance is available now for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
