Last year, Syfy reimagined Terry Gilliam's time-traveling adventure movie 12 Monkeys into a TV series with the same name.
The series did so well for the network that Syfy renewed it for a second season.
Now, Syfy has released a trailer for the upcoming season of 12 Monkeys that includes some nice teasers about what viewers can expect next — and it looks like it's going to be a crazy ride.
Not only will Cole (Aaron Stanford) jump around more in time during the second season of 12 Monkeys, but this time, Dr. Cassandra Railly (Amanda Schull) joins him. The preview shows the pair in the 1940s and in the future, but they'll also land in a variety of other time periods — because this is a show that, at its heart, is about time travel.
"Season two takes place in different eras — the '40s, '50s, '60s, '70s and new places in the future," said 12 Monkeys creator Terry Matalas at New York Comic Con, as reported by IGN.
This new trailer also includes a few scenes with the brilliantly insane Jennifer Goines (Emily Hampshire), who not only quotes Bill and Ted in the clip, but also faces Cole and praises him for finally trying to stop her.
Of course, Cole still has the overall mission he had in Season 1: to save the world from a deadly virus that creates a bleak future. But last season, his mission seemed an exercise in futility. According to this trailer, it seems that he's now more concerned with saving individual lives this season. It's likely, though, that Cassandra is still on mission, especially as she learns more about the virus.
This season will also answer questions left hanging from last season, particularly about Cassandra's strange visions.
"You'll find out more about the Red Forest, The Witness, and that there is going to be a bigger threat than the plague," said Matalas.
Viewers will also finally get an explanation for why some of the show's characters age slower than others.
Whatever the case, Matalas stated that 12 Monkeys already has its endgame in sight and knows how the series will end when it comes time to close its last chapter. The film ended with the death of Cole — so is that where the series plans on going? Matalas wouldn't give specifics, but it sounds likely.
"We know what the last moment of the show will be," said Matalas at NYCC, as reported by The Inquisitor. "We have a definitive target in place. It's very emotional and it's going to make everyone cry."
12 Monkeys returns to Syfy in April, 2016.
