This serialized made-for-TV version has stayed close to the film in its first season but will likely pave its own path for the next. The show stars Aaron Stanford (Nikita), Amanda Schull (Suits) and Kirk Acevedo (Fringe, Oz) in the leads.
“We are absolutely committed to ’12 Monkeys,’ and have been incredibly impressed by the outstanding critical and audience praise the series has earned,” Dave Howe, Syfy president told Variety. “The talent both on and off-screen have delivered a series that has us all on the edge of our seats, providing exactly the smart, exciting storytelling Syfy is known for.”
The numbers for the show have been impressive exceeding expectations. The second season is slated for fall of 2016.
