ReGenesis tackled the up-to-date subject of bioterrorism - specifically bioterrorism generated by the fantastic scientific advances made during the early 21st century. Peter Outerbridge starred as David Sandstrom, chief scientist and molecular biologist for the North American Biotechnology Advisory Commission. Popularly known as NorBAC, which had been created to investigate (and in some cases terminate) examples of questionable biotechnology. Though mankind had advanced to the point of being able to create "perfect" food, luxury items and even babies in the lab, not everyone was motivated by altruism,and there were plenty of madmen and terrorists with deep pockets who intended to use high-tech science for evil purposes.
Bob is trying to prevent a rain of concentrated sulfuric acid that would destroy Mexico City. Homeland Security suspects two American scientists of preparing a bio-terrorist attack against the United States President and order David and Caroline to investigate.Watch Now:Amazon
David and Carlos are still investigating the poison that is affecting Charringa's lemon crops in Florida, before the United States decide to bomb Cuba. Jill, on the other hand, asks Mayko to contact all the other labs using the same stem cells from Korea to let them know a retrovirus is in that strain. Bob offers to verify all the steps one more time with her and see if her findings are correct. Simon Jessup finding that Glenn responds to all the stimuli suggests that he undergoes brain surgery.
It's a race against time to identify the cause of a deadly virus, spreading rapidly and headed straight for the city. It's up to NorBAC to identify patient zero and contain the outbreak. As if a deadly virus wasn't enough, NorBAC's Chief Scientist, David Sandström must deal with the unexpected arrival of his belligerent teenage daughter, Lilith, and arguments with NorBAC's Executive Director Caroline Morrison over the security clearance of the one member of his team he'll need the most, his top virologist.Watch Now:Amazon

After a self-imposed exile to China, David Sandström is kidnapped by the People's Liberation Army and ordered to secretly investigate a deadly outbreak that has killed 19 people in a small village. With the help of three Chinese scientists, David discovers the outbreak has been caused by an ancient bacterium that has seeped into the village's water system. David is horrified when he learns that one of the scientists has decided to test the antidote on her self in order to expedite a cure. While David makes his way back to Canada, Caroline and Carlos are witness to a horrific attack at the site of the International AIDS Conference.Watch Now:Amazon

NorBac must find a cure to a bacterium that will surely kill David and Bob if they do not succeed. They also need to engineer the cure so that it eradicates the bacterium that was probably transported by the wind after the explosion of the lab in Utah.
As the search continues for the source of the deadly prions, NorBAC zeros in on a large agribusiness they suspect of selling infected chickens. David tries to convince Danny to stop gene therapy. Caroline insists that David interview Jill Langston, for the vacated virologist position at NorBAC. His reluctance turns to lust when he meets her.Watch Now:Amazon

Mick turns to Lilith, who helps him steal evidence from the scientist who cloned him, his own father. Meanwhile, Caroline suggests that Hira has possible terrorist links and shuts her out of NorBAC. David must bring Hira back. But when he does he's confronted with a rally outside NorBAC, lead by a fanatical Reverend who claims that Christ can be genetically resurrected from a Crucifixion nail. The Reverend wants him to prove it, but David's not into playing God. In the frenzy, shots are fired and someone gets hit.Watch Now:Amazon
The HIV strain that sean gave to Audrey Graves is so virulent that none of the new tri-therapy drugs work on it. They decide, then, to try a combination with any type of drugs that exist with the help of all the labs that accept the offer. Audrey Graves's baby is HIV positive and they hope to eradicate the virus with a new combination. Carlos is still searching for Patient Zero in Africa. In the mean time, NORBAC also looks at the devastating effects of pryon disease on humans via the consumption of infected chicken.Watch Now:Amazon
