With the first four seasons already on the air, fans are speculating more about season 5 of the series. Here’s everything you need to know about the potential fifth season of 12 Monkeys, including its release date, cast, plot, and other updates!
12 Monkeys season 5 has been canceled! Here’s why:
12 Monkeys season five has officially been canceled, and while there were talks regarding a fifth season, the makers have axed off the series. The show’s scope has grown significantly over the course of its four seasons, so it was only right that it could return for a final season that included 11 episodes and a large, 2-hour conclusion.
According to Chris McCumber, president of NBCUniversal Cable Networks, renewing the show for its final season was an easy decision for the network. “It’s grown into a world well beyond the original film, and after seeing the creative strength of Season 3, we couldn’t wait to pick it up for a fourth season.”
The actress who portrays Jennifer Goines, Emily Hampshire, revealed in an Uproxx interview that a crucial moment in Jennifer’s journey will occur at the very end. She made a suggestion that, without giving too much away, viewers will be thrilled with the conclusion.
“There’s something like [an end credits scene] with Jennifer that you see at the end,” she revealed. “[I]t goes all the way back to Season 1 and you’re like, ‘Oh my God.’ It’s the most satisfying thing, and it’s been very hard for me not to say something about it.”
Although we don’t know why the series was canceled as there aren’t any official revelations, the cast and crew seem to be happy about the decision. We shall keep this space updated for more details, please stay connected with us, until then!
