We’ve been getting closer and closer the past two seasons, but it looks like the shtako officially hits the fan in the third season of Defiance.

A new teaser trailer for the future-set series, which airs on Syfy (Corporate owner of Blastr -Ed.), has been released, finally showing off some fresh footage from the upcoming Season 3. If you’ve been following the series thus far, it looks like things are going to get a whole lot more interesting. For fans looking to jump in during the slow summer months, this could be a good place to do it, with the action actually ramping up.

The third season aims to pay off several lingering storylines, with the town under siege and pretty much all the drama exacerbated by the arrival of a new alien species long thought extinct in the Defiance-verse. Yep, the oft-mentioned Omec will be showing up this season, led by young Kindzi (Nichole Galicia) and her father, T’evgin (Conrad Coates).

Along with the Omec, the other alien races will also be getting some screen time this year. Season 3 will also deal with the political fallout of the Earth Republic’s downfall, as the Votanis Collective looks to take advantage of the power vacuum. Air travel will also play a larger part in this season, in the wake of Irisa using her abilities to rearrange the wreckage orbiting the planet to help clear the skies.

Check out the new footage below and let us know what you think:

Defiance returns with a two-hour premiere Friday, June 12, on Syfy.
