Newswire: Syfy renews 12 Monkeys in order to avoid future apocalypse
According to Deadline, a future version of the Syfy channel—from a world that has been devastated by a plague released by an organization called the “Army Of The 12 Monkeys Fans”—has just travelled back in time in hopes of preventing that terrible future from ever happening. To do that, it has decided to renew its 12 Monkeys adaptation for a second season—even though the first season is still airing. OK, so Deadline didn’t reference Syfy traveling through time or anything, but trust us, it was implied.
Along with another year of time-hopping monkey adventures, the second season of 12 Monkeys will also bring with it a new pair of showrunners. Current showrunner Natalie Chaidez is leaving for her own sci-fi show on Syfy, a series called Hunters. She’ll be replaced by Terry Matalas and Travis Fickett, who are currently writers on 12 Monkeys.
