Syfy has set a premiere date for the highly anticipated 12 Monkeys adaptation.

Nikita’s Aaron Stanford will star as a time traveler from a decimated future, who journeys back to present day in a bid to locate and eradicate the source of a deadly plague that will pretty much annihilate the human race. Amanda Schull and Kirk Acevedo will also star.

The drama, inspired by the 1995 film that starred Bruce Willis and Brad Pitt, will debut Friday, Jan. 16 at 9 p.m. ET.
