Syfy Has New Shows This Summer: ‘Dominion’ and ‘Defiance’

Syfy Channel’s Defiance returned last week for Season 2 following the premiere of Dominion, a new series based on the 2010 film Legion. Both series together made for a strong night of programming for Syfy with Dominion seeing a solid start. Compared to all ad-supported cable scripted drama series premieres year to date, Dominion ranks #4 in L+SD rating among both Adults 18-49 and Adults 25-54, and #2 among Men 18-49 and Men 25-54. Kicking off the night at 8PM (ET/PT) with its Season 2 premiere, Defiance delivered 776K Adults 18-49 and 948K Adults 25-54, which is a solid return for basic cable.

Defiance was sold as a truly interactive experience when it premiered alongside a massively multilayer online video-game. Happenings in the game were supposed to effect the series. It appears though that the television series featuring genre favorite actress Julie Benz (Dexter, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) is outlasting the game. The series is set on Earth after a destructive battle with aliens. The world is now trying to rebuild with aliens and humans trying to live together.

Dominion comes from the same folks behind the 2010 movie Legion and is based on characters and story elements from that film. The story is set in a post-apocalyptic future where angels have waged a war of possession against humans. This series also stars a Buffy the Vampire Slayer alum — Anthony Stewart Head.

See there are a few things to watch over the long hot summer. Do you watch either of these shows? Sound off in the Comments.
