As far as reboot sequence go, The 4400, which ended its unique run in 2007 after 4 seasons, looks like an odd alternative for The CW to be reviving because the imaginatively titled, 4400. The story of 4400 individuals who vanish and reappear years later with out getting old looks like a minimize and dry plotline that upon getting finished it, you may’t actually do it once more…no less than not until you’ll take the thought, change the numbers and add in a aircraft and name it one thing like Manifest. However, as The CW have now launched the official synopsis for the rebooted present, it seems to be like there was a couple of tweaks to the plot in comparison with the unique sequence, however will it’s sufficient to make it work a second time round?
In the brand new iteration of the present, slightly than seemingly random collection of individuals to have vanished an returned, this time round all the lacking are those that had been “overlooked, undervalued and otherwise marginalized” in society. How that plot level is advanced all through the sequence shall be one thing that we should wait and see, however it could recommend that no matter is behind the disappearance is linked to those individuals for a cause, and its rationalization is the one factor that looks like setting this sequence aside from its predecessor.
This is the official pilot synopsis:
“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, Jharrel (Joseph David-Jones), an empathetic social worker, and Keisha (Ireon Roach), a hardened community corrections officer, are among the civil servants called upon to deal with the uncanny refugees.”
“The new partners clash in ideology and approach, but gradually find they have more in common than they thought as they become familiar with those under their care, including Shanice (Brittany Adebumola), a lawyer and resilient young mother from the early aughts, whose unexpected reunion with her estranged husband Logan (Cory Jeacoma) and suddenly teenaged daughter Mariah is immediately rocky; Andre (TL Thompson), a WWI Army surgeon fresh from the Harlem Renaissance; Claudette (Jaye Ladymore), an influential hidden figure from the Mississippi civil rights movement; Isaiah “Rev” Johnston (Derrick A. King), a black sheep reverend-scion born to a notable televangelist family in 1990s Chicago; LaDonna (Khailah Johnson), a seemingly shallow but misunderstood D-list reality TV star from Miami, circa 2015; and two wildly different unaccompanied teens, Mildred (Autumn Best), a vibrant girl, whose bell bottoms give away her 1970s upbringing, and Hayden (AMARR), an introspective, prescient boy, whose origin remains a mystery.”
“These unwilling time travelers, collectively the 4400, must grapple with their impossible new reality, the fact that they’ve been returned with a few…upgrades, and the increasing likelihood that they were brought back now for a reason they’re only beginning to understand. Janice Cooke directed the episode written by Ariana Jackson.”
4400 will get its premiere on October twenty fifth, with new episodes being launched every Monday at 9 p.m. ET/PT on The CW. Episodes shall be out there to stream on-line at CWTV.com or on The CW app the next day. The unique sequence of The 4400 is presently streaming on Netflix U.S.
