The Showcase Winter 2015 Lineup

This January we’ve got a packed schedule with new series, new seasons and new episodes of the season’s hottest dramas.

Showcase travels through time and confronts the ultimate battle for human salvation in the new sci-fi drama 12 Monkeys. Season two of the hit series Helix explores a terrifying life or death struggle with a deadly new virus, and the critically acclaimed series Broadchurch returns to the schedule with a highly-guarded plot that fans will be speculating about. Also featuring new seasons of Royal Pains and Rizzoli & Isles, the shocking mid-season finale of Lost Girl, and cable premieres of Hollywood’s hottest hits, the winter schedule launches January 5, 2015.

12 Monkeys - Friday, January 16 at 10pm ET/PT.
Inspired by the classic blockbuster film, 12 Monkeys explores the provocative story of a time traveler from a decimated future. Using a dangerous and untested method of time travel, he journeys from 2043 to the present day on a mission to locate and eradicate the source of a deadly plague that will annihilate the human race. Starring Aaron Stanford (Nikita, X-Men: The Last Stand), Amanda Schull (Suits, Pretty Little Liars), Kirk Acevedo (Dawn of Planet of the Apes, The Black Donnellys), Noah Bean (Nikita, Damages) and Canadian Emily Hampshire (Rookie Blue, Cosmopolis).

Helix – Monday, January 19 at 10pm ET/PT.
In the aftermath of the explosion that destroyed the Arctic Bio Systems base, season two of Helix follows the CDC team as they look into a deadly outbreak of a new disease on a Windjammer cruise ship. The investigation leads them to an island inhabited by a cult who hopes to create a utopian society. Steven Weber (Wings, Murder in the First, Dallas) joins the Helix cast as Brother Michael, the charismatic leader of the cult and a first class geneticist. Also new to the cast is Matt Long (Mad Men, Jack and Bobby) who appears as Dr. Kyle Sommer, the newest member of the CDC team.

  • The explosive fourth season of Rizzoli & Isles premieres Wednesday, January 7 at 10pm ET/PT, with Jane and Maura investigating a number of complex and troublesome cases, including a deadly shooting at a community parade, the brutal killing of an overzealous journalism student and the pending trial of Maura’s biological father, Paddy Doyle.
  • In addition to new series and new seasons, the first half of Lost Girl’s epic final season continues in January with new episodes, including the mid-season finale on Sunday, January 25, at 9pm ET/PT. Sexy succubus Bo’s story will wrap up later in 2015 when the second half of Lost Girl season five returns.

New faces to join the Fae-mily for Lost Girl’s Final Season

In season five, Bo’s determination to do the impossible for the people she loves triggers an explosive chain of events that will play out over the final episodes. Bo discovers that love is not always enough to keep a family together as she and her friends face an enemy unlike any they’ve faced before. In the season premiere “Like Hell Part 1,” Bo goes to hell and back to rescue a friend while Tamsin (Rachel Skarsten) faces a foe from her past.
