How do you stop a time traveler from destroying the world? James Cole and Dr. Cassandra Railly have tried and failed to stop the Witness since the beginning of 12 Monkeys. Now, their chances are almost up, and the duo will have to travel back even further than ever before if they want to find a way to defeat the Witness for good.
SYFY has dropped a new teaser trailer for the fourth season of 12 Monkeys, which offers only a brief taste of what’s coming. The fate of humanity is on the line, but there’s no guarantee that Cole or Railly will make it out of the last leg of their quest. Still, the Witness must be stopped, even if it costs them their lives.
The teaser is light on details about the story, but we do know that Cole and Railly are searching for a “weapon capable of stopping the Witness for good.” However, their victory may rest upon their willingness to sacrifice themselves.
Entertainment Weekly has posted a few exclusive pics from the new season, including a look at Cole and Railly in the old west, while also noting that showrunner Terry Matalas is slated to direct three episodes this season.
SYFY also revealed their plans to drop the entire 11-episode fourth season of 12 Monkeys over the course of four weeks, starting on Friday, June 15. Three episodes will air on each Friday for the first three weeks of the season. Then on Friday, July 6, the two-part series finale will bring this story to a conclusion. Will you be watching?
