Will Cole be able to save the fate of mankind or is mankind bound by fate? Taking place in the ravaged future of 2043 and the present day (2015), 12 Monkeys explores themes of destiny, fate, love and the possibility of second chances. Syfy.com
Season End Status: Syfy elected to air this show’s third season as a binge-watch with all ten episodes running over a three night period. That is likely because they expected the linear viewing numbers to be low (which they were, see below) and wanted to air out the third season as soon as possible. It has been renewed for a fourth season, but that has been announced as its last. It’s likely that Syfy noticed that this one played well to the binge-watching crowd and wanted to go ahead and give it the chance to resolve all of its storylines seeing as the show has received critical and fan support. The fourth and final season will air at some point in 2018.
