WARNING: Clear the weekend of May 19-21. You’ll be busy sitting around pantsless watching people travel through time and beat the shit outta each other.  Sounds like the perfect experience to me.

You like 12 Monkeys, dontcha?  You like to binge-watch TV dontcha?  If you fall into both of these categories, and you really, really should, then Syfy has a treat for you.  Not only have they given 12 Monkeys a S3 premiere date, which will be Friday, May 19, but they’re “binge broadcasting” it to you.  All 10 episodes of season 3 will be broadcast over that weekend with 4 episodes on Friday, 3 episodes on Saturday, and the final 3 episodes of season 3 on Sunday.  That means we’ll be monkeying around all weekend.  And since monkeys don’t wear pants, it’s just my kind of weekend.

Not enough good news for ya?  Okay, for the hard to please, how about hearing Syfy has renewed 12 Monkeys for a 4th and final season?  Oh, what’s that?  Not too happy that one of your favorite shows is ending after 4 seasons?  Chew on this:  Having that knowledge in advance gives the show creators time to craft a truly satisfying ending to what has been a supremely satisfying show.

This is a win-win for primates everywhere!  So take this good news and fling it at all your friends.  And in the event you’re still wary, below is the press release straight from Syfy with all the juicy details.  Mmm, monkey juice!

There’s even a trailer, which for some reason won’t embed properly, but all you have to do is click this link to watch:  12 Monkeys Season 3 Trailer

Press Release:


Entire Third Season to Premiere Between May 19-21 in Syfy’s First-Ever, Full Season Linear Binge

NEW YORK, NY — March 16, 2017 — Syfy today announced that it has renewed critically-acclaimed original series 12 MONKEYS for a fourth and final chapter ahead of its Season 3 premiere. The network also announced that the series’ entire 10-episode third season will premiere over three consecutive nights, from Friday, May 19 to Sunday, May 21 from 8-11PM ET/PT. The first four episodes will premiere on Friday, with three episodes airing each night on both Saturday and Sunday.

 Produced by Universal Cable Productions in association with Atlas Entertainment, the beloved drama, developed by Terry Matalas and Travis Fickett (“Nikita”), is based on the 1995 Golden Globe® award-winning film of the same name. Said co-developer, showrunner and executive producer Matalas: “Universal Cable Productions and Syfy have given us the opportunity to tell an ambitious, emotional story with a beginning, middle and an end – if not always in that order. I couldn’t be more grateful for their faith and support. Like our fans who may want to turn their clocks ahead to see what we’ve got in store, I only wish I could turn mine back to relive this incredible experience over again.”

12 MONKEYS has a dedicated and enthusiastic fan-base thanks to the epic storytelling by Terry Matalas, and the stellar cast and crew,” said Jeff Wachtel, President, Chief Content Officer, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment. “We are thrilled to be able to offer fans an opportunity to binge the third season as a reward for their lasting support, and we couldn’t be more excited to see where Terry takes us with the final chapter of this fabulous story in the fourth season.”

“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, Entertainment Networks, 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.”

Upon its premiere in May, Season 3 will continue the journey of James Cole (Aaron Stanford), a man sent back in time to eradicate the source of a deadly plague, and his partner, brilliant virologist Dr. Cassandra Railly (Amanda Schull). While attempting to untangle an insidious conspiracy that’s been spun throughout centuries, the duo embark 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 also stars Kirk Acevedo (Ramse), Emily Hampshire (Jennifer Goines), Barbara Sukowa (Katarina Jones) and Todd Stashwick (Deacon).

Joining the cast as recurring guest stars in Season 3 are Hannah Waddingham (“Game of Thrones”), Faran Tahir (“Iron Man”) and James Callis (“Battlestar Galactica”). Emmy® award-winner Christopher Lloyd (“Back to the Future”) is set to appear in a memorable guest-starring role as a deadly cult leader with sinister motives.

Matalas, who also has an overall deal with UCP, will make his directorial debut with the Season 3 premiere episode. Original film producer Charles Roven (“Suicide Squad,” “The Dark Knight Trilogy”) and Richard Suckle (“Suicide Squad,” “American Hustle”) of Atlas Entertainment, as well as David Grossman (“Desperate Housewives,” “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”), serve as executive producers
