EW has a new sneak peek up for the season premiere – with Amanda – watch it HERE
During NBC’s Upfront presentation in New York City, CableTV caught up with Stanford and his co-star, Amanda Schull, who dished on their excitement for the new series and revealed what fans can expect.
“I’m excited,” Schull told CableTV. “We don’t start filming until August and every single day I wake up I’m like, ‘Is it August yet?’ I’m really looking forward to jumping in.”
As with any TV series that is based on a film, there is certainly an added pressure for the “12 Monkeys” cast when it comes to living up to the fans’ expectations.

“You Georgia Techians are naughty,”
Amanda Schull’s (Katrina Bennett) response to the audience’s chuckles from her unknowing burn to Rick Hoffman (Louis Litt) in the Suits On Campus tour at Tech showcased exactly how entertaining and witty the interaction between the audience and the actor and actress was throughout the evening.
However, it was more than the hilarious commentary that won the hearts of the students inside Fox Theatre to see two of the main characters of USA Network’s Suits. It was the loose and liberal feeling inside the room, both when Hoffman apologized for possibly ruining the eyesights of the audience after his partially nude scene and when he sang “Greenback Boogie” by Ima Robot – the show’s theme song – with SympVibes that left the audience applauding the two madly after they left.
