Syfy has released the trailer to the highly anticipated third season of 12 Monkeys where chrononauts James Cole (Aaron Stanford) and Dr. Cassandra Railly (Amanda Schull) battle a mysterious organization bent on ensuring the collapse of time itself.
We get our first look at Christopher Lloyd (Back to the Future) who plays the father of the villainous Pallid Man (Tom Noonan). In addition, James Callis of Battlestar Gallactica fame joins season 3 in a pivotal role according to series creator Terry Matalas. Based on the trailer though there is a high probability that he will be playing The Witness, the child of Cole and Cassie and enigmatic leader of the 12 Monkeys. We also saw a quick glimpse of Hannah Waddingham (Game of Thrones) who is looking fierce and makes me wonder if she’s a part of the future timeline. Team Splinter travels to new periods and locations as well, including the 1980’s and a masquerade ball.
If you haven’t had a chance to watch the first two seasons yet, do it now.
Season 3 synopsis:
The third season finds Cole and Railly embarking on a desperate search across time to find the man responsible for the apocalypse, a time traveler who calls himself the Witness. Killing the Witness will mean saving the world, but the journey will come at tremendous personal stakes for the two and will call into question new alliances, old bonds, and the virtue of the mission itself.
The show returns to Syfy starting May 19 (8-11 pm) where the network will air the whole season in a course of three days. Prepare yourselves.
