Exclusive: Following on from our coverage of leaked documents from Syfy which seem to indicate that the network has picked up its latest drama project Rewind to series, TVWise has been leaked two further documents which seem to have revealed the premiere dates for Syfy’s newest original series Defiance and the second half of season 4 of Warehouse 13. According to the documents (the Warehouse 13 document can be viewed here and the Defiance document can be viewed here), Defiance will premiere on Monday April 15th at 9pm with its two hour pilot before assuming its regular Monday night 10pm time slot on April 22nd, and Warehouse 13 season 4.5 will premiere on Monday April 22nd at 9pm.
As with our previous articles on these leaked documents, I have been unable to independently confirm if the facts contained within them are 100% accurate and as such should be treated as rumour, although I have no reason to doubt the source that leaked said document to us. TVWise has also reached out for to the network for confirmation, however, repesentatives of Syfy did not immediately respond to our requests for comment.
For those not following: Defiance is a multi-platform project encompassing an MMO game and Syfy’s weekly TV series, in which events in one world can and will directly affect the other. Penned by Farscape creator Rockne S. O’Bannon, Defiance is set in the near future and introduces a world where humans and aliens must learn to live together on an exotic new Earth that has been transformed by alien terra-forming machines (For more detailed plot information on the series see our previous report). The series is currently in production in Canada and stars Grant Bowler, Tony Curran, Julie Benz, Jaime Murray, Mia Kirshner and Graham Greene.
Along with the Syfy document seemingly indicating that the network had picked up Rewind, this was one of several documents that were leaked to TVWise earlier this week. More to come….
