THE ENEMY IS HERE!
THE ABC FAMILY HIT ORIGINAL SERIES 'KYLE XY' RETURNS THIS JANUARY FOR ITS ACTION PACKED THIRD SEASON
Burbank, CA (December 1, 2008) � Kyle faces his greatest challenge � sacrifice. The third season of the hit ABC Family original series KYLE XY is set to premiere on Monday, January 12 (9:00 � 10:00 PM ET/PT). The ten all-new one hour episodes star Matt Dallas, Marguerite MacIntyre, Bruce Thomas, April Matson, Jean-Luc Bilodeau, Chris Olivero, Kirsten Prout and Jaimie Alexander.
As all great men grow into their hero status, they must learn that their special attributes come with a price. Kyle (Dallas) is not exempt from this rule. Before now he was just a boy figuring out who he was and what his purpose was in life, but now as greater forces push him to rise to new levels he must become a man. And to do so, Kyle may have to sacrifice relationships with those he holds most dear.
The greatest influence for this change in Kyle is the secretive organization Latnok, led by its charismatic spokesperson Cassidy (guest star Hal Ozsan). Latnok feels it is time to finally introduce themselves to Kyle proposing that he work for them and become the man he is destined to be. But when Latnok uses kidnapping, blackmail and manipulation to get what they want, can Kyle truly trust them to be honest and sincere in their interest in him?
With all of Latnok's concentration on Kyle, where does that leave Jessi (Alexander)? As a product of the same experiment, is Jessi just a pawn that Latnok can use to get to Kyle? Or do they have their sights set on her for another reason? Either way, Kyle and Jessi must band together to uncover Latnok's true motives. As the problems mount and the mystery deepens, Kyle and Jessi find themselves growing closer and closer together.
Once again caught in the middle, can the Tragers really help keep Kyle safe this time around as his powers and the danger around him grow?
The ABC Studios series is created by Eric Bress & J. Mackye Gruber ("Butterfly Effect," "Final Destination 2"). KYLE XY is executive produced by Eric Tuchman and David Himelfarb, with co-executive producers Julie Plec and Daniel Arkin.
