Syfy Sets Premiere Dates for ’12 Monkeys,’ Freshman Drama ‘Hunters’

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.

“12 Monkeys” aired its first season on Fridays in early 2015. Its finale in April averaged about 700,000 total viewers in same-day viewing, according to Nielsen.

Syfy cleared the decks of some of its under-performing dramas in 2015, cancelling “Defiance,” “Dominion” and “Haven.” The net’s biggest bet of the new year comes Jan. 25 when it launches “The Magicians,” based upon Lev Grossman’s best-selling books centering around a secret institution specializing in magic.
