Helix is about to go even more viral!

Syfy announced today that its original sci-fi series has been renewed for a second season, which will no doubt please fans of the show.

The series — which is executive-produced by Battlestar Galatica’s Ronald D. Moore, Steven Maeda (Lost) and Lynda Obst (Contact), and was created and is also co-executive produced by Cameron Porsandeh — just picked up a new, 13-episode second-season order, with production set to begin later this year for a winter 2015 premiere.

Bill McGoldrick, EVP, Original Content at Syfy, said:

“Helix has built one of our most loyal and consistent audiences in its first season on Syfy. The incredibly talented writing and producing team have crafted a thriller that consistently delivered suspense, twists and high quality drama. We look forward to growing this passionate audience in what promises to be an even more memorable second season.”

Starring Billy Campbell, Hiroyuki Sanada, Kyra Zagorsky and Mark Ghanime, Helix will wrap its very first season tonight at 10/9c on Syfy.
