ABC is currently the least horror-friendly network on the air, and we’re still not sure if its upcoming “Resurrection” will appeal to the genre crowd; but now that the series has a premiere date, we thought we’d pass it on so you can judge for yourselves.
It won’t be debuting until Sunday, March 9th, at 10:00 PM ET/PT (taking over the timeslot for “Betrayal” when that show’s season concludes); but to help get you ready, check out the huge “Resurrection” character and image gallery we put together for you below.
The exact number of episodes wasn’t included in the announcement, but “Resurrection” is expected to be a limited series, airing just 12 to 13 episodes per season.
The people of Arcadia, Missouri, are forever changed when their deceased loved ones suddenly start to return. An 8-year-old American boy (Landon Gimenez) wakes up alone in a rice paddy in a rural Chinese province with no idea how he got there. Details start to emerge when the boy, who calls himself Jacob, recalls that his hometown is Arcadia; and an Immigration agent, Martin Bellamy (Omar Epps), takes him there. The home he claims as his own is occupied by an elderly couple, Harold (Kurtwood Smith) and Lucille Garland (Frances Fisher), who lost their son, Jacob, more than 30 years ago. While they look different, young Jacob recognizes them as his parents.
Those closest to the family try to unravel this impossible mystery, including Sheriff Fred Garland (Matt Craven), whose wife, Barbara, drowned 30 years ago while trying to save Jacob. But this boy who claims to be the deceased Jacob knows secrets about his own death that no one else knows — secrets that Fred’s daughter, Gail (Devin Kelly), will begin to investigate and discover to be true.
“Resurrection” stars Omar Epps (“House”) as Martin Bellamy, Matt Craven (Crimson Tide, A Few Good Men) as Fred, Devin Kelley (Chernobyl Diaries, “The Chicago Code”) as Gail, Frances Fisher (Titanic) as Lucille, Kurtwood Smith (“That ‘70s Show”) as Harold, Sam Hazeldine (The Raven) as Abel, Samaire Armstrong (“Entourage,” “The O.C.”) as Elaine, Nicholas Gonzalez (“Off the Map”) as Connor, Mark Hildreth (Dragon Ball Z) as Tom, and Landon Gimenez as Jacob. Written by Aaron Zelman (“Damages,” “The Killing”). “Resurrection” is executive produced by Aaron Zelman, JoAnn Alfano, Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner, Jon Liebman, Brillstein Entertainment, and Plan B. The pilot was directed by Charles McDougall. “Resurrection” is produced by ABC Studios.
