Syfy sure loves its comics.
Deadline reports Vault Comic’s Vagrant Queen is the next comic book set to become a Syfy original series. The project, from showrunner Jem Garrard and Blue Ice Pictures , has a 10-episode commitment and actor Adriyan Rae set to star. Production will begin this summer.
The comic book series, created by Magdalene Visaggio and artist Jason Smith, centers on Elida (Rae), a child queen driven from her throne and left to wander the galaxy. Evading the revolutionary forces looking to end her life for many years, a frenemy from her days in court finds her to tell her of her mother’s continued existence. Elida has little choice but to return to her homeworld and stage a rescue. The series also features Wynnona Earp‘s Tim Rozon as Isaac — the frenemy described as “an old friend” in the television show’s description — and Paul du Toit as Elida’s real enemy, Commander Lazaro.
The series is expected to debut on Syfy sometime in 2020.
