’12 Monkeys’ Season 2 Confirmed! Premiere Episode Shoot Underway; Showrunner Terry Matalas Drops Hints
“12 Monkeys”, the Science Fiction mystery drama based on the 1995 film of the same name being renewed for a second season after having premiered on January 16th 2015 is nothing new. The second season that will be back next year had a strong backing from Syfy President Dave Howe who was impressed by the incredible performances and praise that the show got from audiences and critics alike. A recent update shows the behind the scenes sneak peeks of what has been going on in the show for its second season.
According to The Workprint, the first season of the show left fans with a lot of questions. Especially when it was revealed that the 12 were actually twelve babies who showed up hooded as commandos at the Splinter facility in 2043. Questions like Who are the 12 and what did they have to do with the Splinter machine were some of the questions that fans were left with once the first season was over. There are chances that we might not get an answer to these questions anytime soon, there are chances that the creators of the show Terry Matalas and Travis Fickett’s social media accounts might have some clues about the second season. The two creators who along with the renewal of the show for a second season were stepped up as the showrunners, will definitely bring something more exciting and bigger for the series. To start with Mr. Matalas tweeted about the upcoming second season on May 22nd apart from Todd Stashwick who tweeted that the second season will be shot in Toronto.
Mr. Matalas’s Instagram account about a month back also showed the picture of the new season’s first episode’s script. It was followed by another Instagram post that showed a new set is under construction which basically had these stairs with caption that said “Where do these stairs go? They go up.” Yet another photo of the production team was shared last week that stated the production team getting ready for filming to start. Till the time the show goes back on, these little titbits will certainly provide some information about what fans can expect to see in the upcoming season when it premieres next year.
