Defiance (Syfy/CR: Ben Mark Holzberg)It’s been a good day for the folks at Defiance, as TV Line reports the Syfy series has been renewed for a second season. The news should please both fans of the show as well as devotees of its third person shooter video game.  “Bringing the rich world of Defiance to life has been an incredible team effort,” said Syfy head Mark Stern in a statement.  “We couldn’t ask for better partners than (showrunner) Kevin Murphy, his amazing cast and crew, and Trion Worlds.  We can’t wait to see where they take us in the second season.”

Shooting for the new 13 episodes being August in Toronto, with the second season set to air sometime next year.  During our TCA interview with lead actor Grant Bowler, he talked about the appeal of playing Joshua Nolan on Defiance.
