It’s been a long time since the excellent sci-fi remake Battlestar Galactica came to a close, but executive producer Ronald D. Moore has now finally gotten not one but two new series to television. He’s currently filming the first season of Starz’s Outlander book series adaptation, but before that hits the airwaves we’ll see Moore’s Syfy series Helix. A new full-length trailer for the thriller has been released online, and it looks very much like a TV series adaptation of The Thing. The story follows a team of scientists from the Centers for Disease control who travel to a high-tech research facility in the Arctic to investigate a possible disease outbreak. As one can surmise, things do not go well.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer and to check out some new images from the show. The series stars Billy Campbell, Hiroyuki Sanada, Kyra Zagorsky, Jordan Hayes, Catherine Lemieux, Neil Napier, Mark Ghanime, and Meegwun Fairbrother. Helix debuts on Syfy January 10th at 10/9c.
