“12 Monkeys” entire 10-episode third season will premiere over three consecutive nights, from May 19-21 from 8-11PM ET/PT. The first four episodes will premiere on Friday, with three episodes airing each night on both Saturday and Sunday.
The series is based on the 1995 Golden Globe® award-winning film of the same name. Season 3 will continue the journey of James Cole (Aaron Stanford), a man sent back in time to eradicate the source of a deadly plague, and his partner, brilliant virologist Dr. Cassandra Railly (Amanda Schull). While attempting to untangle an insidious conspiracy that's been spun throughout centuries, the duo embark 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 save the world, but the journey will come at tremendous personal stakes for the pair. “12 MONKEYS” also stars Kirk Acevedo (Ramse), Emily Hampshire (Jennifer Goines), Barbara Sukowa (Katarina Jones) and Todd Stashwick (Deacon).
Joining the cast as recurring guest stars in Season 3 are Hannah Waddingham (“Game of Thrones”), Faran Tahir (“Iron Man”) and James Callis (“Battlestar Galactica”). Emmy® award-winner Christopher Lloyd (“Back to the Future”) is set to appear in a memorable guest-starring role as a deadly cult leader with sinister motives.
