Defiance's first season ended on what can only be called a huge cliffhanger, forcing fans to anxiously await the second season. The show, which has both a tv show and video game component, brings fans of science fiction together as we spend time alongside a set of new heroes, Nolan and his adopted daughter, as well as the diverse people of the town of Defiance - built atop the ruins of Old Saint Louis. With a mix of action, intrigue, betrayal, love, and loss, the first season of Defiance (and hopefully this new one) is something that every science fiction fan would enjoy.
With the Earth Republic having taken over Defiance, and Nolan searching for Irisa – the world that we know from the first season is all but gone. The city is at its boiling point, with miners and townspeople alike being treated differently than they were before, both for better and for worse.
