Based on the comic book series from Vault Comics, space-spanning series Vagrant Queen is set to go "scorched earth" on SYFY starting Friday, March 27, at 10 p.m. Developed for series by showrunner and executive producer Jem Garrard, the ten-episode series is produced by Blue Ice Pictures and features the work of an all-female team of writers and directors.

While we stil have SYFY on a "time out" over how they treated Happy! and Deadly Class, don't let that keep you from giving this series a try. And since it's SYFY, there's a good chance you'll see a prop or set from an old, cancelled SYFY series being used again – so there's nostalgia!

VAGRANT QUEEN follows Elida (Adriyan Rae) from child queen to orphaned outcast, as she scavenges the treacherous corners of the galaxy, always one step ahead of the Republic government out to extinguish her bloodline. When her old friend Isaac (Tim Rozon) shows up claiming her mother Xevelyn is still alive, they head off with their new ally, Amae (Alex McGregor), to stage a rescue that will take her back into the perilous heart of her former kingdom and up against a deadly foe from her childhood, Commander Lazaro (Paul du Toit).

SYFY's Vagrant Queen is produced by Blue Ice Pictures and filmed in Cape Town, South Africa. Garrard executive produces alongside Lance Samuels and Daniel Iron, and F.J. DeSanto and Damian Wassel on behalf of Vault Comics.

First published in 2018, here's a look at the Vault Comics title from author Magdelene Visaggio, illustrator Jason Smith, colorist Harry Saxon, and letterer Zakk Saam:

Former child queen Elida was driven from her throne at age ten and forced to wander the galaxy, evading the revolutionary forces that wanted her dead. When an old frenemy claims to know the whereabouts of Elida's long-lost mother, she is forced to return to her former kingdom and stage a rescue.

If Star Wars was directed by the Coen brothers, you'd have Vagrant Queen.
