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.

Underrated and Underappreciated. But It is a Masterpiece!
31 December 2018 | by raghavkanuSee all my reviews

The 1st season was a bit slow and predictable. But after that it becomes one of the most mind bending intriguing and exhilarating sci-fi series. Season 3 and 4 are gems and the ending is perfect. It has everything; friendship, love, time travel, time loops. Probably the best sci-fi series yet.
