WATCH THE SHOW, PLAY THE GAME, CHANGE THE WORLD!
From Syfy and Trion Worlds comes a revolution in entertainment: powerful scripted drama and a massive online world, united for the very first time. Set on a transformed Earth in the near future, events in the show will impact the game, and players will impact the show, creating an unprecedented immersive experience.
"Defiance" introduces players and viewers to a world where humans and aliens live together on a planet ravaged by decades of war and transformed by alien terra-forming machines. It centers on Jeb Nolan (Grant Bowler), the law-keeper in a bustling frontier boomtown that is one of the new world’s few oases of civility and inclusion. Nolan is a former Marine who fought in the alien conflict and suffered the loss of his wife and child in the war. The trauma transformed him into a lone wanderer in the wilds of this new and dangerous world.
The series stars Grant Bowler, Julie Benz, Stephanie Leonidas, Tony Curran, Jaime Murray, Fionnula Flanagan, Mia Kirshner, and Oscar nominee Graham Greene. "Defiance" is directed by Scott Stewart (Legion, Priest) and written/executive produced by Rockne O’Bannon ("Farscape"), Kevin Murphy ("Desperate Housewives," "Caprica"), and Michael Taylor ("Battlestar Galactica"). Kevin Murphy serves as showrunner. Defiance is produced by Universal Cable Productions.
