Helix is an intense thriller about a team of scientists from the Centers for Disease Control who travel to the high-tech research facility, Arctic Biosystems, to investigate a possible disease outbreak, only to find themselves pulled into a terrifying life-and-death struggle that may hold the key to mankind’s salvation or total annihilation. However, the lethal threat is just the tip of the iceberg, and as the virus evolves, the chilling truth begins to unravel.


Billy Campbell (Killing Lincoln, The Killing) stars as Dr. Alan Farragut, leader of the Centers for Disease Control outbreak field team called upon to investigate and control a potential outbreak. Hiroyuki Sanada (The Wolverine, 47 Ronin) also stars as Dr. Hiroshi Hatake, director of Arctic Biosystems and its mysterious viral research program.


Helix also stars Kyra Zagorsky (Supernatural) as Dr. Julia Walker; Mark Ghanimé (Emily Owens, M.D.) as Major Sergio Balleseros; Jordan Hayes (House at the End of the Street) as Dr. Sarah Jordan; Meegwun Fairbrother as Daniel Aerov; Catherine Lemieux (White House Down) as Dr. Doreen Boyle, and Neil Napier (Riddick) as Dr. Peter Farragut.


Ronald D. Moore (Battlestar Galactica, Outlander), Steven Maeda (Lost, The X-Files) who is also showrunner, Lynda Obst (Contact, Sleepless in Seattle), and Brad Turner (Hawaii Five-0, 24) are Executive Producers. The 13-episode series is produced by Tall Ship Productions, Kaji Productions and Lynda Obst Productions in association with Sony Pictures Television. Prolific director and producer Jeffrey Reiner (Friday Night Lights) directed the premiere episode, which was written by creator and co-executive producer, Cameron Porsandeh.

    It’s a really good show and has big DVR increase nobody’s going to find it on a Friday at 10pm
    It hit a low last week :(
    But it shouldn’t e cancelled because it’s doing better than Lost girl, Bitten and being human!
    I hope the ratings it’s a great show! I’m also looking forward to dominion on syfy

  • merrrrrranga

    here’s hoping they don’t air just 10 episodes, tell everyone it’s on hiatus for 11 months, suddenly bring it back after 7 months with little announcement, act surprised when the ratings drop and cancel it 9 eps later.

    i miss you, caprica.

    Yeah, this was unforgettable. Syfy…

  • Samuel Gagné Martel

    Lost girl and Bitten are Canadian shows they are WAY cheaper to produce than Helix. Also, lost girl would still be renewed if it was “canceled” by syfy, since it’s produced by the Canadian channel Showcase the show existed years before it started airing in the US. Which means US ratings don’t matter for those shows.

    Helix is a US produced show and is way more expensive to produce. They can’t be happy with those ratings. I’d say renewal prospects are slim at best.

    Horrible writing, I’m cheering for the virus.
