CW cancels 4400 after just one season

Cast of CW’s 4400

CW has pulled the plug on 4400 after just one season.

Filmed in Chicago last summer, 4400 was a reboot of the 2004 science fiction television series The 4400, which was also canceled in 2007 after just 3 seasons.

The show starred Brittany Adebumola, Joseph David-Jones, Ireon Roach, TL Thompson, Jaye Ladymore, Derrick A. King, Khailah Johnson, Cory Jeacoma, Amarr, and Autumn Best.

Written by Ariana Jackson, the 2021 version of the series explored “the history and legacy of white supremacy in our country and how it hasn’t been fixed, and how that has led to where we are now.”

Over the last century at least 4,400 people who were overlooked, undervalued, or otherwise marginalized vanished without a trace off the face of the planet. One night, they are all returned to a location in Detroit not having aged a day and with no memory of what happened to them.

As the government races to understand the phenomenon, analyze the potential threat, and contain the story, empathetic social worker Jharrel Mateo (David-Jones) and hardened community corrections officer Keisha Taylor (Ireon Roach) are among the civil servants called upon to deal with the uncanny refugees. The new partners clash in ideology and approach, but gradually find they have more in common than they thought as they become familiar with those under their care.

These unwilling time travelers, collectively dubbed the 4400, must grapple with their impossible new reality, the fact that they’ve been returned with a few “upgrades”, and the increasing likelihood that they were brought back now for a reason they’re only beginning to understand.
