Building on the success of its international hits Lost Girl and Continuum, Syfy has acquired the first two seasons (23 episodes) of New Zealand scripted series The Almighty Johnsons from All3Media International. Season 1, consisting of 10 episodes, will premiere on Syfy in 2014. The Almighty Johnsons follows the Johnson boys, four typical fun-loving guys – who have inherited the power of Norse Gods. But these four brothers are no flashy superheroes. Everyday Gods have everyday struggles – searching for love, overcoming sibling rivalry and fulfilling their God-like destiny – while still enjoying a few beers with their mates. The Almighty Johnsons is a production of South Pacific Pictures.
