On CBS Paramount original series 4400, thousands of people who were They were kidnapped from different points Throughout the twenty-first century suddenly came back Together in the present day without remembering where they were taken or who took them. However, what 4,400 do know is that some of them develop various supernatural abilities that change their lives even more drastically. At New York Comic Con 2021, the cast and creators of the CW reboot discussed their approach to the story.
Such as A native 4400 Continuing, the kidnappers realized that there was a deeper significance to their powers and that each one of them was an unintended part of a larger project aimed at saving humanity from itself. While 4400The premise of the series may also emerge by the standards of today’s superhero-saturated media landscape. The series was so bold and fresh when it first premiered in 2004, the CW hopes the same will be true for Next reboot. In New York City this year – set in person and in action – Executive Producers Ariana Jackson and Sunil Nayar, Actors Joseph David Jones, T.L. Thompson, Autumn Best, Brittany Adebumola, Khailah Johnson, Cory Jeacoma, Ireon Roach and Jaye Ladymore , and Derrick King, open Find out who their characters were before disappearing into their own era, and what kind of people they began to become once they find themselves in Detroit in 2021.
While the reboot still contains many elements of the original premise, the new show, which mostly has a black cast, She prepares to explore ideas about society from a different perspective through characters like Jharrel (Joseph David Jones), a modern-day Detroit native whose life is upended when the 4400 reappears. At the hearing, David Jones said Jharrel is “a man of the people trying to navigate government – big government – to defend the people”, and his passion for advocacy is what got him into the situation with the 4400. “I feel like I rarely see someone NS People navigating a system are not people,” David Jones said. “But seeing someone navigating, that also gives you a chance, and a different perspective of what that’s like in reality. Because a lot of us want to find ways and solutions to a lot of the issues that we have, but things get stuck in bureaucracy, you know? “
Like Jharrel, a young woman named Keisha (Ireon Roach) who’s never been kidnapped doesn’t initially know what to do with the 4400, but is steadfast in her commitment to her family. As much as Keisha loves them, Roach has made it clear that her dedication is not without its difficulties. “I think I’m a lot like Keisha in the ways she always thinks of her family, and always works for her family,” Roach said. “But she also finds it very difficult to confront them and face the reality of what that relationship is, even though she always works to make it strong and better.”
One of the ways Keisha works for her loved ones is by enduring the same bureaucracy that Jarrell faces in his battle to fight the system from within, and Roach described how working on a new sci-fi project for her, she finds she sees parts of her story in Keisha. “For example, I have strength,” she said, “and sometimes I don’t really know what to do with it, I don’t know where to direct it, and I don’t know the best way to fight.” “I think that, again, is like telling the times, and a lot of what I’m feeling, which is like, ‘I know I have this. I know I have all these tools, “and I don’t always know I’m fighting the right people, or fighting them the right way.”
Dr. Andre (T.L. Thompson), a transgender man and physician from the 1920s, is one of 4,400 people from the early twentieth century. Thompson said he could deal with Andrei’s curiosity about the world around him as a whole, something that greatly increased his offset over time. “Everything from hairstyles, to cell phones, to people pushing dogs in prams, is like, everything is new to him,” Thompson said. “And sometimes, you know, in 2021 lately, after all the shutdown and everything, going back to the world, I definitely get to know that, like everything looks so new. You know, seeing people’s faces, and Not. “
Thompson also mentioned that while the new 4400 You’ll directly acknowledge a real-world pandemic, it’s not a “pandemic show,” which would be interesting to see given how interesting the series is to talking to other aspects of our reality. Since all of these concepts are familiar, it’s promising that the CW didn’t attempt to lead with 4400It’s the show’s most fictional component as its main draw, and a sign that it might be worth checking out when it premieres on The CW on October 25.
