12 Monkeys is halfway through what’s been another terrific season of time travel-powered thrills. In the midst of everything going on with the ongoing quest to stop the virus that has nearly wiped out humanity, and the search for the mysterious “Witness,” Cassie (Amanda Schull) has changed dramatically, with Season 2 revealing that after she traveled to the future at the end of Season 1, she became a much harder and more dangerous person.
I spoke to Schull about the changes to Cassie and her relationships with Cole, Deacon and Jennifer, and what’s to come on the next episode of 12 Monkeys, “Lullaby,” which finds Cassie sent on a very specific mission – only to find herself “rebooting” in time over and over again.

Time was really not on Cassie’s side during Monday’s Season 2 premiere of 12 Monkeys.
After landing in the hellish world of 2043, the scientist transformed into something of a cold — but kickass! — action heroine simply as a means of survival. Her newfound skills were on full display when she traveled back to 2016, breezily/expertly shooting her way through a gauntlet of enemies before winding up in a tense standoff with Cole.
12 Monkeys star Amanda Schull is ready to moonlight.
The actress, who has the second season of the Syfy series coming, has booked a major arc on TNT drama Murder in the First.
On the cop drama created by Steven Bochco and Eric Lodal, Schull will play Melissa Danson, an assistant attorney general described as intelligent and dangerous in the courtroom. Danson’s take-no-prisoners attitude has been paramount in making her one of the attorney general’s top prosecutors. When assigned a highly publicized case, she proves no risk is too great the reward.
Schull’s credits include Suits, One Tree Hill and feature J. Edgar. She is repped by Innovative and Sweeney Entertainment.
Utilizing a dangerous and untested method of time travel, a man from the post-apocalyptic future, James Cole, (Aaron Stanford, Nikita, X2, X-Men: The Last Stand) travels to the present day on a mission to locate and eradicate the source of a deadly plague that will decimate the human race.
But as he and virologist, Dr. Cassandra Railly (Amanda Schull, Suits, Center Stage), track the mysterious cult behind the outbreak, the “Army of the 12 Monkeys,” the effects of time travel threaten to destroy humanity’s last hope. Tense, haunting and daring, 12 Monkeys is a “fast-paced, sci-fi, thriller,” (Mary McNamara – LA Times) to experience again and again.
