Originally envisioned as a four-part story, in Season 4 James Cole and Dr. Cassandra Railly set out on an epic quest, traveling further back in time than they have ever been before.

Produced by Universal Cable Productions in association with Atlas Entertainment, the beloved drama, developed by showrunner Terry Matalas and Travis Fickett (“Nikita”), is based on the 1995 Golden Globe® -winning film of the same name. 12 MONKEYS follows 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 Emily Hampshire (Jennifer Goines), Barbara Sukowa (Katarina Jones) and Todd Stashwick (Deacon).
Matalas will direct three episodes in Season 4 after making his directorial debut in the third season.
