The CW are looking to reboot cult sci-fi hit The 4400 which originally ran on the USA Network.
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. Some disappearances happened as recently as a few weeks ago, while others date as far back as the day the Soviets launched the Sputnik satellite in 1957.
One day in 2019, all 4,400 show up at the sites of their original abductions. None of them have aged a day and none have any memory of where they’ve been. The so called “4400” must grapple with their return to a changed and hostile world and also contend with the reality that they’ve come back altered in ways that none of them yet understand.
The reboot hails from CBS Television Studios being shephered by Taylor Elmore and Craig Sweeny. Elmore and Sweeny will co-write the pilot for the reboot and executive produce, with Elmore set to serve as showrunner should the project move forward.
