This Helix Season 2 Trailer Trades The Arctic Confines For An Isolated Island

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.

This Creepy Helix Season 2 Trailer Has Cults, Zombies, Islands, And More

Season 1 of Syfy’s bio-thriller Helix was, by almost all accounts, an up and down affair. Still, it was strong enough that the cable network gave the Ronald Moore-produced series a season 2, which kicks off early next year, and to hype their original content, they released this action heavy new trailer.

If you’re caught up on Helix, you know that the narrative eschewed the ice cold confinement of an arctic research base for a less snow-bound locale, an island in the middle of the sea, which offers a different kind of solitude and isolation. After discovering what is best described as a death boat, the intrepid CDC team investigates, but they’re not going to like what they find.

Helix Season 2 Extended Trailer Trades Snow For A Sunny Island…And Zombies

Along with Defiance, Helix was part of the advance scouting party for the new Syfy, a sign that the often-mocked network was shifting its focus back to making actual, serious science fiction, as opposed to lightweight fantasies and horrible “reality” programming. Sadly, Helix’s first season was more frustrating than anything else, but it rallied towards the end in a way that actually left me curious to see what season two would bring to the plate. This new extended trailer leaves me tentatively optimistic. Check it out.

The Walking Dead Bows Out And Helix Marathons Season 1: This Week’s TV Picks

With Turkey Day nearly upon us, it’s not a hugely eventful week on the TV front. But if you’re going to be traveling this weekend, remember to set the DVR, because AMC’s The Walking Dead will be airing its midseason finale this coming Sunday with an episode called “Coda.” Unsurprisingly, the official synopsis isn’t exactly brimming with details:

Rick seeks a peaceful agreement when rules and morals are tossed aside by new enemies.

Helix Season 2 Trailer Trades The Arctic For An Island, But The Body Count Remains

Along with Defiance, Syfy’s Helix was one of the first signs that the network was shifting its focus away from light, fluffy fare like Eureka and Warehouse 13, and back towards more serious science fiction dramas. That’s a good thing, but it doesn’t mean those early experiments were entirely successful. Defiance eventually found its footing, but Helix was frustrating bordering on terrible for most of its first season, only to rally somewhat at the end. Now the latest Helix teaser has provided more clues about where the show is headed: namely, to an island populated by at least one Steven Weber.

Helix Season 2 Footage Takes The Sickness To Sea

Syfy’s Helix was, for most of its first-season run, damned frustrating. The involvement of Battlestar Galactica’s Ronald D. Moore set our bar of anticipation high, but even early on, we found ourselves wondering how the show would sustain itself. After all, the promos made it look very much like “John Carpenter’s The Thing: The Series,” and that description wasn’t far off from what we got. But towards the end of the season, Helix took a hard turn into unexpected territory that left us hoping that season two would rally and live up to its potential. It remains to be seen if that will prove to be the case, but thanks to the clip above, we’ve finally got our first look at Helix’s second season.

Warning: spoilers for Helix’s first season!
