Syfy Announces Premiere Dates for 12 Monkeys and New Series Hunters

Syfy isn't all Wacky Virus Show and Mean Angels and Mega Animal Hybrid Movie Made on a Palm Pilot anymore. There are legitimately good shows on there now! Like 12 Monkeys. Have you seen 12 Monkeys? It will lovingly twist your brain in knots and stab your heart. And on Thursday, Syfy finally announced when its second season will air. 

The time-traveling madness of 12 Monkeys will resume Monday, April 18 at 9pm. Syfy's adaptation of the Terry Gilliam movie follows Cole (Aaron Stanford) as he is sent back in time to prevent a virus from wiping out most of humanity in the future. But of course, it's a little tricker than him showing up and saying, "Hey, can that virus, dudes." Details on Season 2 are slim, but you can watch the previously released trailer right here:


I still have no idea what's going on in that trailer, and I love it.

Also receiving a premiere date was Syfy's new series Hunters, which will be paired with 12 Monkeys on Mondays but get a week's head start, debuting Monday, April 11 at 10pm. The promising series is all about terrorism... alien terrorism! From The Walking Dead's Gale Anne Hurd and 12 Monkeys' Natalie Chaidez, Hunters stars Nathan Phillips as an FBI agent who hooks up with the Exo-Terrorism Unit to combat ALFs who are secretly destroying us from within. 

But why use words when the show can be described with moving pictures?


The quality of Syfy's programming ebbs wildly, but with these two and The Expanse, it looks like we're on an upswing! What do you think?

I'm so excited for 12 Monkeys!!

I can't believe I've been watching Syfy regularly. I'll even check out Hunters because...well, they've actually been airing good scifi shows.

It feels like tv cycles are all screwed up and instead of having a fall season and after New Years season, show just come out whenever.

Why do they think they can stop someone in Canada from seeing the trailer. Excellent trailer.

Why Mondays? I got too many stuff to watch: Supergirl, Gotham, and American Dad. :(

I did mention it in my post under the 12 shows to look for this year. Sometimes I have inside scoop on 12 Monkeys, but there isn't any place to post it on TV.com. :)

Where? Usually I just post under reviews of episodes. I didn't think anyone used any other features in the communities.
