The Syfy programming slate has grown more and more ambitious of late, and 2016 is looking strong with some favorites, old and new. Not only has the network set a second season debut for its breakout 12 Monkeys adaptation, but so too do we know when Walking Dead producer Gale Ann Hurd will unleash a Hunters adaptation.
We haven't kept up with Syfy's adaptation of Terry Gilliam's 12 Monkeys very much since its beginning, but the network has officially contracted a second strain. Syfy has renewed 12 Monkeys for Season 2 to air at some point in 2016, albeit with a bit of creative shuffling behind the scenes.
We were more excited than annoyed when Syfy announced its intent to reboot classic Terry Gilliam-Bruce Willis timebender '12 Monkeys' as a TV series, even moreso now that casting has begun. 'Nikita' and 'X-Men' franchise star Aaron Stanford will take the role once played by Bruce Willis in the big-screen adaptation, while another will fill Madeline Stowe's role, and producers have been chosen as well.
