Syfy just released an official 12 Monkeys Season 3 poster featuring who else… the Witness!
If the first season focused on Cole and last season followed Cassie’s story more closely, it makes perfect sense that the upcoming arc will deal with their child. Clearly the plaque had to take place so his parents would meet and fall for one another, right? We now understand the Witnesses goal was to stop death by unraveling time. Those that die along the way are simply collateral damage. That said, what is Cole and Cassie’s son like as a person? Is he truly preternaturally gifted? No matter how we feel about the show’s “big bad,” there’s little doubt this person is a fascinating part of the story’s mythology. We can’t wait to binge the third season in May. Work on Season 4 is already underway!
Here is Syfy’s official show description…
Critically-acclaimed series 12 MONKEYS follows the journey of James Cole (Aaron Stanford), a man from 2043 sent back in time to eradicate the source of a deadly plague that will all but annihilate the human race, and his partner, brilliant virologist Dr. Cassandra Railly (Amanda Schull). In Season 3, the duo embarks on a desperate search across time to find the man responsible for the apocalypse – a time traveler who calls himself the Witness. Killing the Witness will save the world, but the journey will come at tremendous personal stakes for the pair.
12 Monkeys Season 3 premieres over 3 consecutive nights Friday, May 19 to Sunday, May 21 from 8-11/7-10c
