Starring in the series are Christie Burke, Richard Fleeshman, Reece Ritchie, Stacey Read, and Ryan Adams.

    As for returning series, Syfy welcomes back horror sequel Chucky, the sci-fi dramedy Resident Alien, and paranormal drama SurrealEstate. Chucky and Resident Evil are expected to air new episodes later this year, while SurrealEstate returns for Season 2 in 2023.
