Syfy's Dominion Renewed for a Second Season

Set in the near future, “Defiance” features an exotically transformed planet Earth, its landscapes permanently altered following the sudden – and tumultuous – arrival of seven unique alien races. In this somewhat unknown and unpredictable landscape, the richly diverse, newly-formed civilization of humans and aliens must learn to co-exist peacefully. Redefining the transmedia experience, “Defiance” has distinguished itself with an unprecedented partnership between Syfy and Trion Worlds by creating the first-ever true convergence of television and online gaming.

Based on characters from the hit theatrical film Legion (2010), “Dominion” is an epic supernatural drama set in a transformed post-apocalyptic future, 25 years after an army of lower angels, assembled by the archangel Gabriel, waged a war of possession against mankind. The archangel Michael, turning against his own kind, chose to side with humanity. Rising out of the ashes are newly fortified cities which protect the human survivors. In Vega (formerly Las Vegas), the largest of these cities, two houses vie for control over the people, and the stage is set for political upheaval and a dangerous power shift. Meanwhile, a rebellious young soldier begins a perilous journey as the war escalates between the human race and the angels that are hell-bent on destroying humanity. “Dominion” is produced by Universal Cable Productions and Bold Films.

  • Yeah, not a fan of either. Dominion was like watching pain dry.

      Creepy, is that a typo, or an even better description of watching Dominion?

    I tried to get into Dominion, but it was like they took every sci-fi trope and cliche they could think of and threw it into a blender. Star-crossed lovers, with the girl being the daughter of someone powerful. Class warfare. Evil, smarmy politician with ulterior motives. Devil-may-care hero who doesn’t respect his superiors. Hypersexual but slightly effeminate supernatural being who has sex with multiple women on red satin sheets in a room filled with candles and then whines about his unhappiness. Oh yeah, and a legend about a “chosen one” who will lead people to salvation. There wasn’t a single original thing about it.
