Smith hints (spoiler free) at what fans have to look forward to in the back half of SGU’s first season, which returns to Syfy Channel on Friday, April 2. “I think what you’re going to see in the last half of the season is us having to deal with a lot of outside threats — external people who are trying to harm us, [and] to harm the ship,” he said. “There are some continued divisions within the ship. We also are going to come across some incredibly powerful natural forces.
“This last half is about taking what we’ve established and then really messing with it.”
The season finale in particular is sure to disturb viewers, according to the actor. “We’re going to leave you with the last episode that … when I read it, I got upset,” he said. “There is something that happens in that last episode that is so upsetting, so cruel, and so wrong that just thinking about it gives me goosebumps.”
In the 6-minute video Smith also talks about his new dog, Cassie, interactions with fans on Twitter, and the passionate response (and criticisms) fans have had to the show.
“It’s actually a blessing that we have such an opinionated and passionate and devoted following of people,” the actor said. “It’s been a really fantastic year getting in touch with the fans, and getting some live feedback from people — trying to see, ‘OK, maybe some people like this aspect of the show and they didn’t care for this aspect.’ It’s all information; it’s all good to hear.”
