The first episode of the season is Splinter. Time traveler James Cole (Aaron Stanford) travels from the year 2043 to the present day to stop the release of a deadly virus by the enigmatic organization known as “Army of the Twelve Monkeys”. Cole is helped by the brilliant virologist Cassandra Railly (Amanda Schull) and a math genius with mental issues, Jennifer Goines (Emily Hampshire).

12 Monkeys started in the US earlier this year and has been building quite the buzz. The show is billed as a complete reimagining of the 12 Monkeys film which was based on Chris Marker’s 1962 short film La Jetée.
