12 Monkeys Renewed for Season 2

12 Monkeys Renewed Season 2

12 Monkeys, much like the virus the series tells us will eventually wipe out humanity, apparently can’t be stopped.

The pre-and-post-apocalyptic thriller will be back for a second season, Syfy announced Thursday.

But when Cole and Cassie continue their tromp through time, it will be under the direction of new showrunners. Executive producers Terry Matalas and Travis Fickett, who wrote the Monkeys pilot, will step up to fill the post left vacant by Season 1 showrunner EP Natalie Chaidez, who’ll be busy prepping Syfy’s upcoming Hunters.

Season 2 is slated to air sometime in 2016. 12 Monkeys‘ first season continues this Friday at 9/8c.

    Terrific! Love this show!

  5. Dani says:

    No! I started watching it, but thought it was going to be cancelled (based on ratings) and stopped. Now I regret it. Hopefully it comes out on Netflix once the first season is done.

    • Rorschach says:

      Why do you let ratings dictate your viewing habits? If you enjoy a show, watch it, and worry less about the number of people who agree with you.

      • Et al says:

        I’m guilty of the same thing. I have too many shows and if one looks certain to die, I tend to drop it until proven wrong. However, this one was so good I stuck with it despite being certain it would be canceled. Glad I did.

      • Dani says:

        I’m not worried about people agreeing with me. I worried of getting my hopes up on a show that would have been cancelled. I’ve watched so many shows that ended in one seasons with cliffhangers. IMO its better to wait.

        I’m not worried about people agreeing with me. I worried of getting my hopes up on a show that would have been cancelled. I’ve watched so many shows that ended in one seasons with cliffhangers. IMO its better to wait and see if a show survives.

    • Matt says:


      I understand your concern. But it’s not too late to get into 12 Monkeys!! All the episodes are available for streaming on syfy.com. It’s also available On Demand (I have Comcast Xfinity.) I promise you that you WON’T regret watching this. Every episode is better than the last! No need to wait for Netflix- get caught up now! :)

  6. James D says:

    great. I’ve enjoyed it thus far.

  7. Kate says:

    Good, because I know we are nearing the end (just based on my familiarity with SyFy’s scheduling) but they just seem to be getting going on the story.

  8. mari johnson says:

    We are really enjoying it

  9. justsomeguy says:

    Whew! So glad. It’s an awesome show, and I wish more people would watch.

  10. Harvey says:

    That’s awesome! I love the show! How many episodes are left though?

    OK i like it to but hears the big question. how many months are there going to be between seasons. 6,12,18 because its kinda of a joke that they use to be able to put out 25 episodes seasons of the the greats and be off for 6 to 7 months now we get 10 to 13 episodes seasons and it gone for up to year and a half. I’m looking at you show that starts with a D

    • Simon Jester says:

      I don’t know what ‘the show that starts with a D’ is, but 10-13 episodes is standard for cable, and has been for a long time now.

      • beyrn says:

        that may be true but it still should not take up to 18 months for a next season on any net work

        • Amanda says:

          I agree- I forget all about the show, and sometimes replace it with something else. Why is there such a between seasons? I like it the way the networks do it.

          • S McMary says:

            I agree too, especially the fact that the majority of shows both on cable and network now have a midseason finale/hiatus as well. At the risk of sounding like a stuck in the mud old lady, I miss the day of traditional 22+ seasons with reruns in the summer to catch up on or discover :) I am happy for the renewal.

  15. Et al says:

    Such a pleasant surprise. With the ratings I was certain it was a goner.

  16. Television says:

    yay! good news!!! love this show. keep up the good work 12 monkeys!

  17. Amanda says:

    Great! I did love the pilot-had me on the edge of my seat from the start, so I am pleased with them going back to the original show runner. It has quickly become a favorite.

  26. Spence says:

    Happy to hear it! Any word on Helix?

  27. JustLookAtTheFlowers says:

    Great! I’m very much enjoying this show

  28. Robert says:

    Hooray! I am very happy with this show. The lead actor was a former X-Man… and now he is Cole- super time traveler! I like the term “splinter” to refer to time travel. Also, Ramse was last seen on Walking Dead- he was a member of the Governor’s band that attacked the Prison.

    They keep mentioning the 1980s…. I am waning to see Cole in the ’80s!

  29. kristen t says:

  32. NOLANOLA says:

    I really love this show but waiting a whole year or 9 months is KILLING ME !!!!

  33. Jackie says:

    I haven’t enjoyed a show as much as 12 monkeys In a long time. My son and I are constantly talking and trying to figure out who is who etc. It is going to be a longggggg year waiting for the next season.

  34. Great. I can’t wait to buy season one on DVD and watch it commercial free. I’ve heard lots of good things about it.

  35. Elia says:

    i’m so happy it’s been renewed for a 2nd season. good show.

  36. Jenny Stgeorge says:

    When’s season 2 coming? I can’t wait.
