Defiance showrunner Kevin Murphy has outlined plans for a third season of the post-apocalyptic scifi drama, should the series be renewed by Syfy later this year.
According to recent tweets from Murphy, a third season will set out to explore more on the Rosewater sisters’ past, which is surely good news for those missing Mia Kirshner’s Kenya, who was murdered by Stahma Tarr (Jamie Murray) in the season one finale.
And speaking of murders, Murphy has also made public his intention to bring back Gale Harold’s Connor Lang, who also suffered death at the hands of another Tarr (Datak) earlier last season.
Harold’s Lang served in the 101st Division of Echelon during the Pale Wars. A recent episode “Put the Damage On” saw his brief return, albeit as a figment of Mayor Pottinger’s (James Murray) imagination, during which it was revealed that Pottinger knew and idolized Lang when they were both at boarding school together, a fact unknown to Amanda, Lang’s former girlfriend, and Pottinger’s now aide.
This curious love triangle of sorts may also be explored further as the show intends to delve into the history of “Younger Potty, Amanda, Lang, Kenya” in addition to The Pale Wars NY, according to Murphy.
Defiance continues Thursdays 9/8c on Syfy.
