Storyline

In the year 2043, scavenger James Cole (Aaron Stanford) has been recruited by a team of "Project Splinter" scientists led by physicist Katarina Jones (Barbara Sukowa), to travel back in time to the year 2015, and stop the release of a deadly virus by the enigmatic organization known as the "Army of the 12 Monkeys". In Cole's original time-line, the virus caused a plague that resulted in the death of seven billion humans in the year 2017, and its on-going mutations will mean the eventual end of the human race. In the 2015 time-line, Cole will meet and enlist the help of brilliant virologist Dr. Cassandra "Cassie" Railly (Amanda Schull); the two are brought together because a recording mentioning Cole, that Cassie made after the viral outbreak, is uncovered by Jones in the future time-line, prompting her to select Cole for the mission.

MUST WATCH!
16 April 2018 | by pdaktiloudisSee all my reviews

This is one of the series that you are happy you started watching. So so so underated. If you like sci-fi and time travel you are simply NOT ALLOWED to miss this show. Most people that write bad reviews here didn't bother to see how the story is unfolding and how many layers there are. Trully appreciate the fact that each season is better than the previous. That is something rare in TV.
