Fan-favorite SYFY show Killjoys just got picked up for a fourth and fifth season. The extension comes with both good and bad news. The bad news is that the fifth season will be the last, which will surely leave diehard fans with a hole in their Friday nights. But the good news is that creator Michelle Lovretta and company will have a chance to wrap up the show in a complete and satisfying way.

“Helmed by Lovretta and driven by the superb storytelling, we are excited to bring Killjoys back for two final seasons,” said Bill McGoldrick, Executive Vice President Scripted Development for NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment. “Tonight’s game-changing season finale sets the tone for the final chapters of our bounty hunter’s space adventures and we cannot wait for our talented cast and crew to bring to life what is sure to be an epic journey that will leave our passionate fans on the edge of their seats.”

“A final two-season order is a huge vote of confidence for a show that keeps getting better and better,” said David Fortier and Ivan Schneeberg, co-presidents of Boat Rocker Studios and executive producers of Killjoys. “We are so proud of the support Killjoys has received from critics and fans alike, and are thrilled to plan a deserving ending for Dutch and the Jaqobis brothers; it has been an incredible intergalactic journey and we could not have wished for better partners to share the ride.”

"This renewal is the kind of privilege every creator hopes for – a chance to plan the end of your story with the luxury of 20-episodes to do it,” said Lovretta. “I’m immensely grateful that both of our network partners - along with Temple Street and UCP - have given our team, cast, and fans this incredible opportunity.”

The Season 3 finale of Killjoys airs tonight on SYFY Channel at 8 p.m. ET.
