That’s right, Doc Brown himself is going back to his time-travel roots guys. In a bit of truly inspired casting Emmy-winner Christopher Lloyd has joined 12 Monkeys Season 3 as Zalmon Shaw, the father of the series’ nastiest baddie, the Pallid Man (Tom Noonan). We can’t wait to see how Shaw fits into the show’s mythology.
12 Monkeys is a critically acclaimed drama that has quickly become a cult favorite among GeekTV audiences. If you’re late to the party, we highly recommend putting every other show on hold and binge-watching 12 Monkeys Seasons 1 and 2 so you’re caught up before the show returns Summer 2017.
This series is the perfect example of a TV show that’s better than the movie. The writing is spectacular and the attention to detail mind-blowing. This year co-creator, showrunner and all around cool dude Terry Matalas makes his directorial debut in the season premiere.
Here is Syfy’s official show description…

Joining forces with Dr. Cassandra Railly in the present day, Cole must untangle a conspiracy that’s been spun throughout centuries.
