Syfy Renews ’12 MONKEYS’ For Fourth and Final Season
Syfy has announced that they’ve renewed 12 MONKEYS for a fourth and final season of 10 episodes set to premiere in 2018. Season 3 premieres in May 19 with 10-new episodes.
Season 3 premieres with the first four episodes back-to-back starting at 8PM. Then three episodes will air from 8-11PM the next two nights.
Chris McCumber, President of Entertainment Networks at NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment said:
“With its time-twisting themes and edge-of-your-seat storyline, 12 MONKEYS is the perfect show to air this way. It’s grown into a world well beyond the original film, and after seeing the creative strength of Season 3, we couldn’t wait to pick it up for a fourth season.”
Based on the 1995 feature film of the same name, 12 MONKEYS follows the journey of Cole (Aaron Stanford), who is sent back in time from a dark, hellish future to prevent it from ever happening. Joining forces in the present with Dr. Railly (Amanda Schull), 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. Also starring Kirk Acevedo, Emily Hampshire, Barbara Sukowa and Todd Stashwick. Christopher Lloyd joins season 3 as guest star, and Hannah Waddingham, Faran Tahir and James Callis will recur.
12 MONKEYS is produced by Universal Cable Productions in association with Atlas Entertainment. Terry Matalas serves as show runner and executive producer. Travis Fickett co-created with Matalas. Charles Roven and Richard Suckle also executive produce.
