19 October 2016 1:20 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Syfy's 12 Monkeys isn't a huge departure from Terry Gilliam's film starring Bruce Willis, Madeleine Stowe, and Brad Pitt but it does tell a unique and dynamic story (and has fantastic, complex female characters). Aaron Stanford, Amanda Schull, and Emily Hampshire star in the Syfy version which is set to debut its third season next year. And this time, a time travel expert will be along for the ride. Today they let us know that none other than Christopher Lloyd, of Back to the Future fame, will guest star.

Xavier Dolan Won’t Submit ‘John F. Donovan’ To Cannes Next Year; Points To ‘Trolling’ Nature Of Criticism

19 September 2016 7:35 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

French-Canadian filmmaker, enfant terrible and cinematic wunderkind Xavier Dolan might have walked away from this year’s Cannes Film Festival with a Grand Jury Prize for his latest, “It’s Only the End of the World,” but that doesn’t mean he’ll be returning to the festival where he’s seen so much success.

In a new post on his Instagram, Dolan says he will not submit his next feature, “The Death and Life of John F. Donovan,” to the festival, partly because it simply won’t be done in time, and partly because of the kind of “trolling, bullying and unwarranted hatred” he sees as part of the current critical climate. Check out his post below.

12 Monkeys Season 3: Coming to Syfy!!!

29 June 2016 2:02 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

There isn't even time travel involved with this fantastic news.

12 Monkeys has been renewed for a third season, as first reported by EW.

Hailing from executive producers Terry Matalas and Travis Fickett, 12 Monkeys Season 2 is in the middle of one of the most creatively viable and incredibly emotional arcs its ever had.

With only two episodes remaining this season, it's wonderful of Syfy to give fans the freedom to really sit back and enjoy what lies ahead.

“Syfy and Ucp have been incredible creative partners, and I’m thrilled that we are going to tell the next — even more twisty and emotional — chapter of this time travel adventure,” Matalas told EW.

This season, a lot of the action has taken place in the future, a future in which protaganists and would-be love interests James Cole (Aaron Standford) and Cassandra Railly (Amanda Schull) have been distant and at odds.

12 Monkeys Season 2 Episode 11 Review: Resurrection

27 June 2016 7:11 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

The moment I'd been dreading arrived... Jennifer died. Luckily there was a silver lining.

In typical 12 Monkeys fashion, things did not play out as we expected. 12 Monkeys Season 2 Episode 11 proved to be another strong episode. The scene where old Jennifer meets her younger self is already one of the highlights of the entire series. Emily Hampshire Ftw!

This installment perfectly set up the final two hours of the season. What a ride, guys.

The episode recap reminded us that Jennifer's days were numbered, which instantly bummed me out. I mean, what's 12 Monkeys without its Jennifer Goines? Surely, Terry Matalas and his writing team would deliver a clever twist so that Jennifer might stick around, right? Plus, this installment was titled "Resurrection."

Still, it didn't help that old Jennifer was burning photos and talking death. "Today is the day. One that ends at the beginning, and begins at the end" she told Hannah. »
