Watch: Syfy's '12 Monkeys' Trips to the Future With 9 Minute Preview

Syfy has posted the first nine minutes of the pilot as a teaser for the full premiere, which comes on January 16. It’s a large chunk of the episode, with only a few big hints of the time travel behind the show’s premise, but plenty of interaction between Cole (Aaron Stanford) and Cassandra (Amanda Schull), the virologist who might be the key to saving humanity from its demise. 

(By the way, if you’re having a hard time believing Schull as a respected scientist, it might be because your subconscious recognizes her as prima ballerina Jody Sawyer from the 2000 film “Center Stage.” Hopefully, the CDC won’t notice her terrible, terrible feet.) 

The clip ends with a lot of intriguing questions poised, including what exactly “12 Monkeys” will change from the film. Enough to get you interested? Let us know in the comments!
