The second season takes the series away from Arctic Biosystems, which was destroyed in the first season finale, and places the focus on an outbreak aboard a Windjammer cruise ship. Once the ship crashes following a struggle, the surviving CDC team discovers an island cult that believes they can create a utopian society. The team must then find ways to protect itself from the dangers of the island and from falling into the traps set by the cult, who want nothing more than to recruit new members that they deem worth of their idealized society.
Joining the cast of Helix this season are Steven Weber (Chasing Life) as charismatic cult leader Brother Michael and Matt Long (Lucky 7) as world-class toxicologist Dr. Kyle Sommer. More casting should be announced in the coming months.
The second season of Helix is slated to premiere January 2015. A concrete premiere date will be revealed later this year.
