A year has passed since 4400 abductees were returned to Earth (and six months since the original series ended). Richard (Mahershalalhashbaz Ali), Lily (Laura Allen), and Isabelle are on the run from Jordan Collier (Billy Campbell) and others who would attempt to harm their child. Shawn (Patrick Flueger) has moved into Collier's cult-like 4400 Center. Then there are NTAC (National Threat Assessment Command) agents Diana (Jacqueline McKenzie) and Tom (Joel Gretsch). The former has officially adopted Maia (Conchita Campbell), while the latter is reunited with formerly comatose son Kyle (Chad Faust), Shawn's best friend. Almost everyone, returnees and otherwise, is changing. Jordan, for instance, is having more seizures (as a result of his first encounter with the eerie Isabelle), while Kyle is having blackouts. Along the way, new characters are introduced, like mute mental patient Kevin (Jeffrey Combs), who regains the ability to talk, thanks to Tess (Summer Glau, Serenity
), the only returnee who can recall what happened to her. Others include Diana's sister April (Natasha Gregson Wagner), Jordans pal Matthew (Garret Dillahunt, Deadwood
), and former NTAC supervisor Dennis Ryland (Peter Coyote), who returns to the fold. Guest stars include E.R.
's Sharif Atkins ("Voices Carry"), Star Trek: Voyager
's Robert Picardo ("Weight of the World"), and Twin Peaks
' Sherilyn Fenn ("Carrier"). The season will end much as the miniseries began, with the 4400 being released from another quarantine, setting the scene for the next year. Although the first set was a barebones release, the second features commentary from McKenzie, Gretsch, writer Craig Sweeny, and writer/producer Ira Steven Behr. --Kathleen C Fennessy
Complete second series of the US sci-fi drama executive-produced by Francis Ford Coppola. Over the last century, thousands of people have gone missing and are presumed dead. When a meteor impacts over Earth, all 4400 people are returned to Earth as suddenly and inexplicably as they disappeared. In this series, it has been a year since the abductees returned. Jordan (Bill Campbell) is opening a series of '4400 Centres' to spread the message, while the NTAC starts becoming more interested in the strange powers exhibited by them. Tom (Joel Gretsch) and Diana (Jacqueline McKenzie) investigate a 4400 whose powers devastate a small community, and who could potentially wipe out humanity. Episodes are: 'Wake Up Call (Part 1)'; 'Wake Up Call (Part 2)'; 'Voices Carry'; 'Weight of the World'; 'Suffer the Children'; 'As Fate Would Have It'; 'Life Interrupted'; 'Carrier'; 'Rebirth'; 'Hidden'; 'Lockdown'; 'The Fifth Page'; and 'Mommy's Bosses'.
