Vault Comics Vagrant Queen Set To Become Syfy Series
by Erik Amaya
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.
