We’re not monkeying around. The 12 Monkeys TV show has been renewed for a third season on Syfy, according to EW. The futuristic sci-fi drama, set in the 2040s, involves time travel after a virus has wiped out much of Earth’s population.
The 12 Monkeys TV series cast includes: Aaron Stanford, Amanda Schull, Emily Hampshire, Barbara Sukowa, Kirk Acevedo, Todd Stashwick, and Noah Bean. The mystery drama series, based on the 1995 feature film starring Bruce Willis, Brad Pitt, and Madeline Stowe, was created by Terry Matalas and Travis Fickett.
EW reports, co-creator Matalas said, “Syfy and UCP have been incredible creative partners, and I’m thrilled that we are going to tell the next — even more twisty and emotional — chapter of this time travel adventure.”
12 MONKEYS follows the journey of Cole, a time traveler sent back in time from a dark, hellish future to prevent it from ever happening. Joining forces in the present with Dr. Railly, Cole must defeat a centuries-old malevolent organization known as the Army of the 12 Monkeys. As Cole, Railly and their unlikely allies get closer to the truth, they’ll learn there are deadly consequences for all of history … and time itself.
Terry Matalas and Travis Fickett (“Nikita”) are executive producers and showrunners, with Charles Roven (“Batman v. Superman,” “Suicide Squad,” “American Hustle,” “The Dark Knight Trilogy”) and Richard Suckle (“Suicide Squad,” “American Hustle,” “The International”) as executive producers. Atlas Entertainment and Roven produced the original film of “12 Monkeys,” which starred Bruce Willis, Brad Pitt and Madeline Stowe, on which the series is based.”
