The team of scientists from the CDC are back for season 2. They left the blistery cold Artic and the Narvak virus behind them, only to be thrown in the trenches 15 months later when they are once again summoned to investigate a new virus in the remote island of St. Germaine. Meanwhile, the elusive […]
Syfy’s Helix took a cool story – an outbreak scenario – and turned it on its head in its season. For Season 2, Dr. Alan Farragut’s team is going to learn that there’s even more weirdness lying in wait as Ilaria, the company that owned Arctic Biosystems has tentacles that reach further than anyone could […]

After its successful premiere, Helix (Syfy, Fridays, 10/9C) has made a good impression.
