A new sci-fi television series is coming your way next week with a similar vibe as Killjoys and Farscape. It’s an adaptation of a comic book series, but don’t be surprised if you haven’t heard of it. Like many TV series adapting comic book stories of late, the production was practically overlapping with its release. The series is called Vagrant Queen and it hails from one of the smaller publishers, Vault Comics. The comic was written by Magdelene Visaggio and illustrated by Jason Smith, and the TV series is written by showrunner Jem Garrard (Killer High), Mariko Tamaki (X-23, Tomb Raider, Lumberjanes) and Mika Collins (Travelers).
Adriyan Rae (Atlanta) plays the series lead Elida, with Alex McGregor (Blood Drive) as Amae, and Paul du Toit (Maze Runner, Tremors) as Commander Lazaro. Fans of Wynonna Earp, Lost Girl, and Being Human fans will be happy to hear Tim Rozon is the series co-star, playing Elida’s old frenemy, Isaac.
The series promises cannibalistic aliens, dangerous planets, shootouts, karaoke, and parking tickets. Order Vagrant Queen–the graphic novel–now from Elite Comics (it’s also available at Amazon here). And check out this preview of Syfy’s Vagrant Queen:
Vagrant Queen premieres on the SYFY channel March 27 at 9 p.m. central time. Season 1 will have ten weekly episodes.
