Although a reboot of a 1970s science-fiction show, “The Tomorrow People” is definitely something new on The CW. Focusing on a young man named Stephen (Robbie Amell) who discovers he is a member of a genetically advanced race, the pilot episode starts off with plenty of adventure and craziness.
Photos from that episode show this very clearly.
The show begins with Stephen Jameson hearing voices and waking up in strange places. Although he mostly figures he is going insane, he follows a voice and meets the Tomorrow People. Hunted by Ultra, a paramilitary group, the young adults live in hiding under the leadership of John (Luke Mitchell). Stephen finds out about Ultra and its leader, Dr. Jedekiah Price (Mark Pellegrino) with the help of John, Cara (Peyton List) and Russell (Aaron Yoo). Along the way, Stephen learns some truths that will help explain his father’s disappearance years earlier.
