Action and genre legend Danny Trejo isn’t slowing down in his older years as the film legend is set to take on a new sci-fi action series called Paragon. I had first reported on this over a year ago and have to admit that I forgot about it but it’s on my radar once again as a new trailer has just dropped for the show which you can view below!
Official Synopsis: Heaven is gone. In Paragon’s world, where Reapers take souls and demons bargain with humans for their place in the food chain, a new descendant named Jael has emerged. After centuries of civil unrest in the real world, a new war is waging among those who are seeking to create a new after-life – and Jael finds herself in the middle of it. She must venture into the dark world of Soul Reaping and embrace her new role as the Paragon.
The series is being shopped around to networks and streaming services right now so hopefully it gets a pick up. Joining Trejo in the series are
Amin Joseph, Franziska Schissler, Dilan Gwyn, Khu, and Justin Price.
The series will have a seven episode first season and Price, who is also a producer on the show along with Khu and Schissler says, “We have always loved the Sci-fi fantasy genre, and we wanted to create a series that explored one of the most intriguing questions of humanity. Where do we go when we die?And what would happen if Heaven no longer existed?” He also added “Paragon is an edgier and grittier cable style series in the vein of Firefly and Altered Carbon. I believe we have an electric hybrid that explores the human spectrum of dealing with loss and love in a stylistic way. Danny Trejo is outstanding as Kincaid, the half-dead leader of disbanded reapers.”
Sounds pretty damn cool to me and the trailer below will surely peek your interest so check it out and lookout for more to come on this one!
