Holy Shtako! Syfy Renews Defiance for Season 2

I hope Jaime Murray loves getting painted white and giving her son extra-friendly hugs in sexy alien momwear, because she's in for a whole 'nother season of it. As expected, Syfy has renewed its alien epic Defiance for a second season with an order for 13 more episodes for 2014. The order comes four episodes into the science-fiction drama's first season (here's Noel's latest review!). 

Defiance's premiere was Syfy's second-largest series premiere ever, and the show has become its highest-rated series of the year. The series is also part of a huge multimedia project, as a Defiance massively multiplayer online game is currently available for PC, Xbox, and Playstation and shares the same universe. As showrunner Kevin Murphy told us earlier this week, stories between the two platforms will start to converge in next week's episode. 

Set in the near future, Defiance tells the story of a post-apocalyptic earth that's been settled by a collective of alien races. It stars Grant Bowler, Julie Benz, Stephanie Leonidas, Tony Curran, Jaime Murray, Graham Greene, and Mia Kirshner.
