We’ve been ready for the reboot of the classic series, The 4400, ever since it was announced last year. Now titled 4400, the series will premiere on the CW Network on October 25th, and features a solid cast of time-displaced characters. From the show’s summary, “Over the last century at least four thousand four hundred people who were overlooked, undervalued or otherwise marginalized vanished without a trace off the face of the planet.”
“Last night, inexplicably, they were all returned in an instant to Detroit having not aged a day and with no memory of what happened to them. As the government races to understand the phenomenon, analyze the potential threat, and contain the story, an empathetic social worker (Joseph David-Jones, “Arrow”) and hardened community corrections officer (Ireon Roach, “Candyman”) are among the civil servants called upon to deal with the uncanny refugees.”
4400 looks ready to utilize the backdrop of science fiction to delve into issues of the present-day, which we here at BlackSci-Fi.com are hyped for. We’ll have coverage and reviews of the TV series once the show premieres on October 25th, so stay tuned.
