More "12 Monkeys"

From TorontoFilm.Net, Sneak Peek "12 Monkeys", the Syfy TV series created by Terry Matalas and Travis Fickett, based on the 1995 time-travel feature of the same name, starring Aaron Stanford and Amanda Schull, premiering a new season May 19, 2017:

"...in the year 2043, scavenger 'James Cole' (Stanford) has been recruited by a team of 'Project Splinter' scientists led by 'Katarina Jones' (Barbara Sukowa), to travel back in time to the year 2015, and stop the release of a deadly virus by the enigmatic organization known as the 'Army of the 12 Monkeys'.

"In Cole's original timeline, the virus caused a plague that resulted in the death of seven billion humans in the year 2017, and its on-going mutations will mean the eventual end of the human race. 

"In the 2015 timeline, Cole meets and enlists the help of brilliant virologist 'Cassandra Railly' (Schull); the two are brought together because a recording mentioning Cole, that Cassie made after the viral outbreak, is uncovered by Jones in the future timeline, prompting her to select Cole for the mission.

"Cole will also encounter math genius 'Jennifer Goines' (Emily Hampshire), whose father Cole has been tasked to kill, Cassie's ex-boyfriend 'Aaron Marker' (Noah Bean), and the dangerous high ranking members of the Army of the 12 Monkeys, including 'Palid Man' (Tom Noonan) and 'Olivia' (Alisen Down).

"In the future timeline, Cole will also have to deal with his best friend 'José Ramse' (Kirk Acevedo), and 'Theodore Deacon' (Todd Stashwick), who leads a brutal pack of scavengers from which Cole and Ramse fled. Meanwhile, Cole and Cassie will try to unveil the identity and whereabouts of the mysterious leader of the Army of the 12 Monkeys, who is only known as 'The Witness', and is always one step ahead of them..."
