The drama centers on James Cole (Stanford), a time-traveler who journeys to the present in order to prevent a massive virus from wiping out the world’s population. Amanda Schull, Kirk Acevedo, Emily Hampshire, Barbara Sukowa, and Tom Noonan also star.
When asked about the season two finale, Stanford said fans will be satisfied:
What happens at the end of this season has been in the works for a long time, so that wasn’t a complete surprise to me. What I was surprised and really delighted by was the execution. I think it’s done really well and artfully, and I think people are really going to be very satisfied by how it ends.”
He also said the finale will open the show up for a “whole new epic tale”:
It certainly asks a lot of new questions. There are all sorts of new avenues that now need to be explored, but that’s what’s been great about the writing, in general. These guys seem to have this completely inexhaustible ability to generate story. Every single episode is a feature film’s worth of storytelling. I don’t know where they keep coming up with it. The finale is very clearly a launching point for a whole new epic tale.”
