Ronald D. Moore’s plague thriller Helix is now just about two weeks away from kicking off its second season on Syfy. This time they’re changing out the ice-bound environs of the Arctic Circle for a remote forest island, though as you can clearly see in this new trailer, the heroes’ situation is no less perilous and full of danger. Hell, this time around it might even be creepier.
Despite the change in venue, shifting to the Lost looking island, the set up appears to be rather similar. They’re in a remote, isolated location where a viral outbreak is running rampant. And, of course, there’s more going on than the team from the CDC initially sees. Just in case you didn’t notice that, one character’s voice over tells you that this island is not what it appears to be. It will be interesting to see how this new set up connects to the last, and how the events at Arctic Biosystems from season one will inform things now that we’re getting a wider view of this particular world.
