Syfy has renewed critically acclaimed time travel series 12 Monkeys for a 10-episode third season according to Entertainment Weekly.

"Syfy and (production company) UCP have been incredible creative partners, and I'm thrilled that we are going to tell the next — even more twisty and emotional — chapter of this time travel adventure," said co-creator Terry Matalas.

The series follows the adventures of James Cole (Aaron Stanford) as he works to stop a global plague in the future from wiping out the majority of the world's population.
