‘The 4400’ Reboot in Development at CW

Variety is reporting that the mid-aughts sci-fi series is getting the reboot treatment courtesy of The CW.

The reboot hails from CBS Television Studios, which produced the original series when it was still known as CBS Paramount Network Television.

In the series, over the course of recent history, four thousand four hundred young adults in their reproductive prime have gone missing all over the world. One day in 2019, all 4,400 show up at the sites of their original abductions. None of them have any memory of where they've been or what happened to them, and none of them have aged a day - but some have undergone profound changes, manifesting paranormal abilities like telekinesis and precognition, and they face a government that views them with utmost suspicion.

The original 4400, which starred Joel Gretsch, Jacqueline McKenzie and eventual Oscar victor Mahershala Ali, ran for four seasons (a total of 44 episodes) on USA Network from 2004-2007. It followed the successful launches of The Dead Zone and Monk as the network was exploring different genres, including sci-fi, before focusing squarely on blue-sky procedurals. Cast members included Billy Campbell, Joel Gretsch, Jacqueline McKenzie, and Mahershala Ali before his Oscar-winning turn in 2016's Moonlight. It remained a cult favorite and a title in the CBS TV Studios library that the studio brass had been keen on revisiting. Elmore is set to serve as showrunner if the project moves forward.
