Syfy is bringing back 12 Monkeys
12 Monkeys, based on Universal’s Terry Gilliam film and starring Aaron Stanford and Amanda Schull, hails from Universal Cable Productions (like Hunters) and will return in 2016. The series continued to gain viewers with its March 6 episode, which attracted 1.5 million total, up 6 percent compared with the previous four weeks. Airing on Fridays, the sci-fi drama is also performing well with three days of delayed viewing (up 104 percent).
“We are absolutely committed to 12 Monkeys, and have been incredibly impressed by the outstanding critical and audience praise the series has earned,” Syfy president Dave Howe said. “The talent both on- and offscreen has delivered a series that has us all on the edge of our seats, providing exactly the smart, exciting storytelling Syfy is known for.”
