SYFY'S TIME-TRAVEL DRAMA '12 MONKEYS' GOES BACK TO THE FUTURE: CHRISTOPHER LLOYD JOINS SEASON THREE AS GUEST STAR

Co-creator and Showrunner Terry Matalas to Make Directorial Debut in Season Premiere of the Universal Cable Productions Drama

Syfy announced today that award-winning actor Christopher Lloyd ("Back to the Future") has been cast in a guest role in season three of the time-travel thriller 12 MONKEYS. Lloyd will play Zalmon Shaw, a charming but deadly cult leader who preys upon other's tragedies and losses in order to recruit new members into the apocalyptic cult the "Army of the 12 Monkeys." Shaw is the father of the series' most imposing villain, the enigmatic Pallid Man.

Best known for his iconic role as Doc Brown in the blockbuster film series "Back to the Future," Lloyd made his feature film debut in "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest" and has won three Emmy Awards: one for outstanding lead actor in "Road to Avonlea" and two back-to-back wins for outstanding supporting actor in "Taxi." He is represented by The Gersh Agency and managed by Andrew Freedman.

In addition, Terry Matalas, co-creator and series showrunner, will make his directorial debut in the premiere episode, which started production in Toronto this week. 12 MONKEYS is produced by Universal Cable Productions, in association with Atlas Entertainment, who produced the original cult classic film, "12 Monkeys." The series, starring Aaron Stanford (James Cole), Amanda Schull (Dr. Cassandra Railly), Kirk Acevedo (Jose Ramse), Emily Hampshire (Jennifer Goines), Barbara Sukowa (Katarina Jones), and Todd Stashwick (Deacon), follows the journey of James Cole, a man from the future sent back in time to stop the malevolent "Army of the 12 Monkeys" from destroying the world.

In season three, James Cole and Cassandra Railly embark on a desperate search across time to find the man responsible for the apocalypse, a time traveler who calls himself the Witness. Killing the Witness will mean saving the world. But the journey will come at tremendous personal stakes for both Cole and Railly and will call into question new alliances, old bonds, and the virtue of the mission itself.
