Syfy’s new space drama “Hunters” will premiere April 11, and will be followed a week later by the return of “12 Monkeys,” the network announced Thursday.
“Hunters” follows Baltimore FBI agent Flynn Carroll (Nathan Phillips) as his search for his missing wife leads him to a highly-classified government organization – the Exo-Terrorism Unit (ETU) – who track and fight alien terrorists. Britne Oldford (“American Horror Story”) plays Regan, a valuable ETU operative keeping secrets of her own. The gritty sci-fi thriller also stars Julian McMahon (“Nip/Tuck”) as the dangerously unhinged terrorist, McCarthy.
The 13-epsiode first season premieres Monday, Apr. 11 at 10 p.m. ET.
The second season of the network’s fan-favorite “12 Monkeys” will air on Mondays, with Aaron Stanford (James Cole), Amanda Schull (Dr. Cassandra Railly), Kirk Acevedo (Ramse), Emily Hampshire (Jennifer Goines), Barbara Sukowa (Katarina Jones) and Todd Stashwick (Deacon) reprising their roles.
The 13-episode second season of “12 Monkeys” premieres Monday, Apr. 18 at 9 p.m.
Terry Matalas and Travis Fickett (“Nikita”) are executive producers and showrunners, with Charles Roven (“Batman v. Superman,” “Suicide Squad,” “American Hustle,” “The Dark Knight Trilogy”) and Richard Suckle (“Suicide Squad,” “American Hustle,” “The International”) as executive producers. Atlas Entertainment and Roven produced the original film of “12 Monkeys,” which starred Bruce Willis, Brad Pitt and Madeline Stowe, on which the series is based.
