Helix returns on Friday!

Helix returns on Friday with a brand new location, divergent time periods, and a potential new threat!
At he end of last season, with the arctic base destroyed and Dr. Julia Walker kidnapped, we saw Alan and Peter track her down to Paris a year later, where she appeared to be in charge of the Ilaria Corporation, which is run by 500 immortal humans, of which Julia is one.
But in the Season 2 season premiere we jump in two different directions but the same location – a mysterious island in the Pacific Northwest. In one case we see Peter, Sarah and newcomer Dr. Kyle Sommer (Matt Long) investigating possible Narvik infections, and come across a boat where a mysterious pathogen kills all but one of the passengers and leads them to the island, which is inhabited by a cult led by the mysterious Brother Michael (Steven Weber).
Interlaced with this we see Julia also arrive on the same island, some time in the future, where she is captured by someone in a cobbled-together protective suit, while apparently looking for Alan.
Check out the sneak peek below, along with a catch-up of last season’s events – then read on for a discussion with executive producer Steven Maeda and Kyra Sagorsky (Julia Walker) along with Syfy’s Bill McGoldrick about the upcoming season…
