Syfy summer returns with fan favorites Defiance and Dominion, the third installment in the Sharknado franchise, which has become a worldwide sensation and three new series.

Dark Matter features "the crew of a derelict spaceship awakens with no memories of who they are or how they got there. Facing threats at every turn, they have to work together to survive a voyage fueled by vengeance, betrayal and hidden secrets." 

Killjoys "follows a fun-loving, hard living trio of interplanetary bounty hunters sworn to remain impartial as they chase deadly warrants throughout the Quad, a distant system on the brink of a bloody, multi-planetary class war."

And, finally, Zachary Levi hosts Geeks Who Drink, a rapid fire, pop culture trivia game. The full schedule and Sharknado event week is shown below!
