12 Monkeys follows the journey of James Cole (Aaron Stanford), a man from 2043 sent back in time to stop a malevolent organisation known as the Army of the 12 Monkeys from destroying the world.
Joining forces with Dr. Cassandra Railly (Amanda Schull) here in the present day, Cole must untangle an insidious conspiracy that's been spun throughout centuries.
As Cole, Dr. Railly and their unlikely allies get closer to discovering the truth, they will learn that there are not only deadly consequences for mankind... but time itself.
Season 2 features several acclaimed guest stars, including:
Madeleine Stowe (star of the Twelve Monkeys film) as Lillian, a mental patient in the 1950s who has a major impact on Cole's mission.
Michael Hogan (Battlestar Galactica) as Dr. David Eckland, a charismatic and intelligent scientist from the future with a connection to Jones.
Brendan Coyle (Downtown Abbey) as Dr. Benjamin Kalman, a former bioengineer racked with guilt over the deadly virus his team gave birth to.
