Everything turns upside down in new footage, featurettes for Syfy's 12 Monkeys

One of the best shows you might not be watching is set to return in just a few weeks, and now we finally have some fresh footage from 12 Monkeys. So, what’s next for Season 2?

The Syfy (Corporate owner of Blastr -Ed.) series is loosely based on Terry Gilliam's cult-hit film of the same name, and throughout its first season it really hit the sweet spot left behind by Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. It has a deep mythology, well-thought-out time-travel mechanics and likable characters. The first season ended on one heck of a cliffhanger, and judging by some fresh footage and featurettes for Season 2, it looks like the writers are taking full advantage of the consequences.

The cast and creators tease how the entire dynamic from Season 1 will be flipped on its head as Cassie is hardened by her time in the future — while Cole has actually found some humanity while being trapped in the past. Having seen the first few episode of Season 2, I can attest that the shakeup works really, really well.

The second season of 12 Monkeys is set to premiere on April 18.
