Ascension is set to premiere on December 15, 2014 on Syfy. For updates on the series, visit the official show website.

The movie tells the story of Michiel De Ruyter, a 17th century Dutch admiral who must lead the Dutch fleet to defend his homeland from the terrorizing forces of England. A release in 2015 is expected.
