With the likes of The 100, Arrow, and The Flash, The CW has put together a surprising strong line up of genre shows. And if you’re into vampires, they’ve got you covered on that front, too. Over the next few months, they’re looking to add even more with new shows like iZombie set to debut. One of their more interesting looking additions is the apocalyptic drama The Messengers, and the network has released this quick new trailer to tease the premiere.
This video gives you the basic set up of the series: there’s some kind of mystery comet or asteroid or something that crashed to Earth, apparently killing a handful of people. Only they don’t stay dead and are resurrected in order to fight the devil, yes, like the devil, devil, as that one kid says. That’s a tall order for anyone, let alone the recently deceased, and this footage introduces you to the so-called Angels of the Apocalypse.
