It’s the last hurrah for Kirk Acevedo…
Syfy has renewed its series 12 Monkeys, starring the 45-year-old Puerto Rican actor, for a 10-episode fourth season likely in 2018, which will be its last.
“With its time-twisting themes and edge-of-your-seat storyline, 12 Monkeys is the perfect show to air this way,” said Chris McCumber, President of Entertainment Networks at NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment. “It’s grown into a world well beyond the original film, and after seeing the creative strength of Season 3, we couldn’t wait to pick it up for a fourth season.”
Based on the 1995 feature film, 12 Monkeys follows the journey of Cole (Aaron Stanford), who is sent back in time from a dark, hellish future to prevent it from ever happening. Joining forces in the present with Dr. Railly (Amanda Schull), Cole must defeat a centuries-old malevolent organization known as the Army of the 12 Monkeys. As Cole, Railly and their unlikely allies get closer to the truth, they’ll learn there are deadly consequences for all of history — and time itself.
In addition to Acevedo, who portrays Jose Ramse, Stanford and Schull, the cast also includes Emily Hampshire, Barbara Sukowa and Todd Stashwick.
Season 3 of 12 Monkeys will bow on May 19, with the first four episodes back-to-back starting at 8 PM. Then three episodes will air from 8-11 PM the next two nights.
12 Monkeys is produced by Universal Cable Productions in association with Atlas Entertainment.
