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.

Best Season Yet
25 May 2017 | by See all my reviews

The decision to show the complete season in one weekend was awesome. I just finished "binge" watching this season and loved the experience, instead of waiting week to week. With so much content to take in, it flowed better and made a complex show about time travel very understandable. GREAT JOB SYFY and the GREAT cast of 12 Monkeys. Can't wait til 2018!
