TV show description:
This thriller TV series follows a team of scientists from the Centers for Disease Control. They travel to a high-tech research facility in the Arctic to investigate a possible disease outbreak and find themselves pulled into a terrifying life-and-death struggle that holds the key to mankind’s salvation or total annihilation.

Doctor Alan Farragut (Billy Campbell) is the head of the Center’s Special Pathogens Branch. Brilliant and intense, he’s seen his share of action battling outbreaks and saving lives around the world. None of that compares to what he finds at the Arctic Biosystems base.

His ex-wife is Doctor Julia Walker (Kyra Zagorsky), a Senior Scientist at the Centers For Disease Control. An authoritative genius, she co-heads the rapid response team’s mission to the Arctic Biosystems facility. Doctor Peter Farragut (Neil Napier) is a research scientist working in mutagens. He has a complicated relationship with both his brother, Alan, and his brother’s ex-wife.

Sarcastic and generally light-hearted, Doreen Boyle (Catherine Lemieux) is a veterinary pathologist and an experienced member of the rapid response team. She specializes in the diagnosis of diseases through the examination of animal tissue and bodily fluids. Another member of the rapid response team, Sarah Jordan (Jordan Hayes) is highly intelligent and motivated to impress.

Major Sergio Balleseros (Mark Ghanime) is the Army liaison with the rapid response team. As part of the US Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases and a systems engineer, he has more than average knowledge of viral pathogens.

Handsome and charismatic, Doctor Hiroshi Hatake (Hiroyuki Sanada) is the head of the Arctic Biosystems research facility. He appears eager for the assistance of the CDC in containing the situation within his base but his true motivations aren’t completely clear.

Daniel Aerov (Meegwun Fairbrother) is the head of security at Arctic Biosystems. Having worked with and for Hatake for most of his life, he’s fiercely loyal and dedicated to helping the head of the facility.

I agree with Phoebe. I enjoyed the first season but have watched in dismay as the second season has devolved into more and more explicit gore. Very unenjoyable now and I can’t help but think that the writers are resorting to gore because they can’t figure out what to do with this once imaginative TV series vehicle.

I have watched this series from its beginning and considered it unique and clever. Unfortunately, it has gotten so graphic and disgusting I can’t bear to watch it any longer. Please leave something for the imagination. There are some people left with a little of it.

Over two thirds through Season 2 and ratings are terrible, about a 3rd of last season. At this point I don’t see how it’s plausible it would be renewed for a Season 3. To me it’s a good show but apparently not many are watching it.

I happened on to this show in best buy 1 day and decided to buy. The show was great and can’t wait to see more seasons come out. But of course with any show if it’s good they always seem to cancel them and go on to remakes of remakes. There are so many stories out there they can put to film instead of always making the same shows over with different actors.

Just started watching it on Netflix after seeing the ad for the series on soft tv so I am glad it is back on the air. Intelligent shows like this one often get cancelled its such a shame. Hope the

I love this show, but I don’t know how they will reprise it after so many character deaths and plot twists.
