We’ve talked a lot about how Syfy seems to making a serious effort to turn itself around and become a serious player in the realm of scripted genre entertainment, as opposed to primarily a peddler of original B-movies and so-called “reality” programming that doesn’t pass the sniff test. As hopeful as we are about upcoming Syfy projects such as Ascension and The Expanse, there’s one that still has us very dubious: their series adaptation of Terry Gilliam’s time-travel classic 12 Monkeys. Now Syfy has revealed a very brief look at their version of 12 Monkeys, courtesy of the preview video above.
Syfy typically puts together this sort of “coming soon” montage for their upcoming lineups, and with Defiance and Dominion both having just kicked off their new seasons, the network dropped the above trailer to help hype both of those shows, as well as the upcoming returns of Helix and Haven, and their fall “event series” Ascension. You can see a few 12 Monkeys moments we’ve heard described before beginning around the 30-second mark.
