No. of Season: 1
After struggling to find an audience, Vagrant Queen was canceled by Syfy in June after one season. In an attempt to boost the show’s ratings, Syfy moved the show from its original 10 p.m. Friday schedule to Thursdays at 11 p.m., where the network has previously achieved success with late-night programming like The Great Debate, animation block TZGZ, and repeats of Futurama. Though its ratings saw an 11 percent gain week to week with the move, the show still ended its 10-episode freshman run as Syfy’s lowest-rated series among total viewers and in the demo since 2019.
Based on the Vault comic book series by Magdalene Visaggio and Jason Smith, Vagrant Queen follows the story of Elida (Adriyan Rae), a former queen turned scavenger who’s been on the run since her throne was stolen as a child. One day, Elida’s charming old friend, Isaac (Tim Rozon), turns up with the news that her mother Xevelyn (Bonnie Henna) is still alive. With the help of a skilled mechanic and pilot named Amae (Alex McGregor), Elida and Isaac stage a rescue that takes her back into the perilous heart of her former kingdom and up against a deadly foe from her childhood ― the ruthless and power-hungry Commander Lazaro (Paul du Toit).
