Goodbye snow! The first trailer for the second season of Helix shows a radically different setting. Leaving behind the Arctic Biosystems base, this time the CDC team investigates a deadly outbreak of a new disease on a Windjammer cruise ship. Their investigation leads them to a island inhabited by a cult with the hope of creating a Utopian society (hopefully it’s not the cast of Fox’s Utopia). In addition to star Billy Campbell, this season adds Steven Weber (Wings) as the cult’s charismatic leader and Matt Long (Mad Men) as the CDC team’s new member. Helix returns in January.
