The 4400 reboots are coming, and fans are excited to know what will happen. There have been many rumors circling the internet about the plot of the show, so here’s a little bit of information for you! The new series will be called “The 4400: Reborn,” and it is set to air on June 8th at 9 pm eastern time.
This article provides an overview of what we know about “The 4400: Reborn,” including cast members, release date, and other tidbits that may help you decide whether or not this remake is worth your time.
“The 4400 Reboot” is about what?
“The 4400” was about a group of 4400 people who had all gone missing since 1946 and then suddenly returned to Washington state in 2004, without aging a day and with no memory of how they got there.
Who is casting in “The 4400 Reboot”?
The only confirmed cast members are actors Joel Gretsch, Jacqueline McKenzie, and Ross Kohn. Two other 4400s-Danielle Rousseau (played by Lauren Holly) and Maia Rutledge (played by Maria Bello)-are also set to return in the new series.
What will happen?
We do not yet know how “Reborn” will be different from its predecessor or what the plot is about, for that matter, but we can speculate! We believe the show may explore themes of fate vs. free will, as well as identity crisis, has given many of these issues were introduced in Season One of The 4400.
What is the plot of “The 4400 Reboot”?
This time around, the 4400 be returning to Detroit, Michigan, instead of Washington state. But the main difference between the reboot and its predecessor is that the new show will focus on “overlooked, undervalued or otherwise marginalized people.” The recent casting announcement above gives a snapshot of who some of those characters will be, but with over four thousand people in the mix, the possibilities are endless.
The reboot of “The 4400” is very much in line with a recent push for more diversity in the television industry, which has seen some recent improvement in terms of casting diversity, but still falls short at the executive level (according to UCLA). It also follows recent comments from Mark Pedowitz, the CEO of The CW: Pedowitz said that while the network had been trying to address its diversity problem, there’s still work to do. “What I want to do is improve ourselves, so we’re more reflective of the society at hand,” Pedowitz told Deadline. “We need to do a better job internally and externally. I’ll cop to that. We need to create a legacy for the CW, so the next generation that we hire that is reflective of society.”
This new version of the show that saw 4,400 missing people from the last century reappear all at once will be headed by Ariana Jackson, a Riverdale producer who also has credits on UnReal and Lethal Weapon. Joining her in creating this reboot will be Anna Fricke and Laura Terry, the team that was behind the recent CW remake of Walker, Texas Ranger starring Jared Padalecki.
The official synopsis for the new show reads: “As the government races to analyze the potential threat and contain the story, the 4400 themselves must grapple with the fact that they’ve been returned with a few… upgrades, and the increasing likelihood that they were all brought back now for a specific reason.”
What will be the release date?
it’s possible “4400” could be pushed to 2022 — anything can happen during a pandemic — most likely, it will be part of The CW’s fall lineup for its upcoming 2021-2022 broadcast season. The CW’s fall season usually begins in October, one month earlier than the other broadcast networks. However, the coronavirus pandemic jumbled up The CW’s calendar: the kickoff to the 2020-2021 broadcast season was pushed from October 2020 to January 2021. Nonetheless, The CW’s CEO Mark Pedowitz has committed to returning to October releases.
