SYFY isn’t the most popular right now after canceling another show, The Expanse, which didn’t perform as well as they wanted it to but still had an extremely passionate fanbase. Thankfully those fans were outspoken and helped convince Amazon to swoop in and save that series, and now SYFY has promising new shows like Nightflyers and Deadly Class to look forward to.
For San Diego Comic-Con 2018 this past weekend SYFY released official trailers for both of these new series. You can read more about the shows and watch both of these trailers below.
We’re getting our first look at Nightflyers, an upcoming series based on the 1980 novella of the same name written by Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin.
The show, which is described by Martin in the video as “a haunted house story on a starship” and “Psycho in space,” is a fusion of science fiction, horror, and psychological thriller. It follows a team of scientists on a mission to find life in the universe, and stars Eoin Macken, Gretchen Mol, David Ajala, Sam Strike, Maya Eshet, Angus Sampson, Jodie Turner-Smith, and BrÃan F. O’Byrne.

HBO likes what they’re seeing in the third season of Boardwalk Empire, which just got underway recently. It’s been announced that the show has been renewed again, giving us a fourth season of the hit period drama next fall.
For those of you unfamiliar with the show, it’s set in 1920s Atlantic City (with visits to New York, Chicago, and Philadelphia as necessary) during Prohibition. It follows Enoch “Nucky” Thompson (Steve Buscemi) as a friendly public figure by day who leads a dark second life of crime as the man to see about buying liquor.

I’ve made my love for HBO no secret, with two of my all-time favorite shows going strong right now in Game of Thrones and Boardwalk Empire, and a slew of others I’ve adored over the years. So instead of reviewing season 2 of Boardwalk on Blu-ray, I’ll just be swooning about it for a bit before sharing what bonus features there are to enjoy.
Where season 1 established the incredible collection of characters the show has to offer, season 2 expands on them (those who have survived, anyway), creating an intricately crafted web of often interconnecting storylines. The primary focus of the second season is again Enoch “Nucky” Thompson (Steve Buscemi) and James Darmody (Michael Pitt). But instead of being the boy Nucky helped to raise, Jimmy has reunited with his estranged father, the Commodore (Dabney Coleman), and is leading the charge to take control of Atlantic City and the alcohol coming in and out of it. As you might expect, Nucky isn’t fond of anyone trying to muscle him out of his position of power, let alone the man he’s helped to make who he is, and the two go to war. The results of this power struggle trickle down, affecting anyone associated with the two parties and leading to some interesting new business partners.
HBO has announced the dates that Boardwalk Empire and Treme will return to your TVs, both entering into their third seasons, respectively.
Boardwalk Empire, which stars Steve Buscemi as corrupt politician Enoch “Nucky” Thompson, is set to begin its 12-episode season 3 on Sunday, September 16th at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. The show also stars Kelly Macdonald, Michael Shannon, Shea Whigham, Jack Huston, Stephen Graham, Michael Stuhlbarg, Vincent Piazza, Paul Sparks, Michael KennethWilliams, Gretchen Mol, and Bobby Cannavale.
