The 4400 : after Charmed and Roswell, yet a reboot unnecessary series
The series created by Scott Peters and René Echevarria, and was completed in 2007, will maybe also be reborn from its ashes thanks to the CW.
The 4400is the story of thousands of people who disappear suddenly and inexplicably, and eventually they reappear as if nothing had happened. Begun in 2004, the series had come to an end in 2007 during the broadcast of his final 4 season. The 4400 had pierced through our television screens French in 2000 and had managed to look like more than 6 million viewers on M6.
The series was worn by Joel Gretsch, Jacqueline McKenzie, or Mahershala Ali (winner of an Oscar for her performance in Moonlight) and Patrick John Flueger, and was directed by Scott Peters and René Echevarria. And if the pitch now reminds more of The Leftovers than anything else, The 4400 could be entitled to a second life.
“Staging super mysérieuse”
After Charmed, Dynasty , and soon Roswell, New Mexico, the american channel the CW will therefore strive to be a reboot of the 4400. According to sources reported by Variety, this new series would be headed by Taylor Elmore and Craig Sweeny, who had participated in the writing of some episodes of the original series.
For the time being, very little additional information is available, if it is that this reboot should (hopefully) keep the same frame as the original series. Whether the CW will prefer a cast primarily young, or not ; it will still wait a little.
Finally, Craig Sweeny, who has since passed on Limitless or even Star Trek : Discovery, co-write the pilot alongside Taylor Elmore. No shoot date has been announced.
For his part, Craig Sweeney is currently busy on the post-production of his new series The Code with Anna Wood and Phillipa Soo.
