In season 2 of “Helix,” after barely escaping with their lives, the survivors of season one attempt to move on from the horrors that took place at Arctic Biosystems. But when their work takes them to a mysterious wooded island, they quickly discover that Ilaria Corporation’s reach is deeper and darker than anyone imagined, and a deadly new virus will present a threat that no one thought possible.
Dr. Alan Farragut
Formerly a lead pathologist with the CDC, Dr. Alan Farragut splintered off on his own rogue mission to investigate Ilaria, the corporation at the center of the global conspiracy of Season One. Haunted by the events at Arctic Biosystems, Alan will pursue the truth to the ends of the earth, even as his obsession takes an irreparable toll on his life and the lives of the people around him.
Dr. Julia Walker
Still reeling from the revelations in Season One that changed her life forever, Dr. Julia Walker is pursuing her own agenda to define her new identity. In league with her captors, the shadowy Ilaria Corporation, she must use her passion, courage and fierce independence to find her moral compass and create purpose in her new existence.
Dr. Sarah Jordan
Dr. Sarah Jordan is one of the youngest doctors ever hired by the CDC, and her ambition to make her mark on the world of virology drives most of her decisions … though the events of Season One have given her a new perspective, tempering the naiveteÌ that so often led her astray. She must now balance her ambitions and responsibility with her evolving understanding of who — and what — she is now.
Dr. Peter Farragut
As Patient Zero in Season One, Dr. Peter Farragut was no stranger to the deadly consequences of an unchecked outbreak. Now, leading the CDC team on the island, he must reconcile his personal demons, struggling between his allegiances to his brother Alan, his former lover Julia and the mysterious corporation that may hold the key to the virus.
As the head of the enigmatic order living on the island, Brother Michael welcomes the CDC with caution. A student of nature and lover of science, he eschews modern technology and is suspicious of outsiders … yet he has designs on making an impact that reaches far beyond the Abbey, and he will stop at nothing to preserve his way of life.
Dr. Kyle Sommer
Dr. Kyle Sommer is a world-class toxicologist with a Southern swagger. As the newest member of the CDC team, his Texas charm can bring levity to even the darkest of situations … but what he discovers on the island is unlike anything he’s encountered before, and it will change his life in ways he has yet to discover.
