Syfy has announced premiere dates for two dramas, newcomer “Hunters” and sophomore “12 Monkeys,” which will bow on back-to-back weeks in April.
“Hunters,” a thriller that revolves around a highly classified government organization that tracks and fights alien terrorists, will premiere Monday, April 11 at 10 p.m. The series is from executive producers Gale Anne Hurd, Natalie Chaidez (who will also serve as showrunner) and Emile Levisetti, and is inspired by best-selling author Whitley Strieber’s novel, “Alien Hunter.”
Nathan Phillips stars as Baltimore FBI agent Flynn Carroll, whose wife goes missing. Britne Oldford plays Regan, a valuable operative of the Exo-Terrorism Unit who keeps secrets of her own. The series also stars Julian McMahon as McCarthy, a dangerously unhinged terrorist.
The time-travel drama “12 Monkeys” kicks off its 13-episode second season on Monday, April 18 at 9 p.m., serving as the lead-in to “Hunters.” Aaron Stanford, Amanda Schull, Kirk Acevedo, Emily Hampshire, Barbara Sukowa and Todd Stashwick reprise their roles.
Hunters looks promising (and gruesome). The first episode of Season 2 for 12 Monkeys is available on Syfy.com right now. That show is totally underrated, check it out.
