There is a new Amell in the CW lineup – and well guys, he’s kinda hotter than the Arrow one. Robbie Amell is due to star in the new CW tv show, The Tomorrow People.
Whats the show about?
They are the next evolutionary leap of mankind, a generation of humans born with paranormal abilities — the Tomorrow People. Stephen Jameson stands at the crossroads between the world we know and the shifting world of the future. Up until a year ago, Stephen was a “normal” teenager — until he began hearing voices and teleporting in his sleep, never knowing where he might wake up. Now, Stephen’s issues have gone far beyond the usual teenage angst, and he is beginning to question his sanity. In desperation, Stephen decides to listen to one of the voices in his head, and it leads him to his first encounter with the Tomorrow People — John, Cara and Russell — a genetically advanced race with the abilities of telekinesis, teleportation and telepathic communication. The Tomorrow People are being hunted down by a paramilitary group of scientists known as Ultra. Led by Dr. Jedikiah Price, Ultra sees the Tomorrow People as a very real existential threat from a rival species, and the outcast group has been forced to hide out in an abandoned subway station just beneath the surface of the human world. Trading in secrets, Jedikiah offers Stephen the chance for a normal life with his family and best friend, Astrid, if he will help in the struggle to isolate and eradicate the Tomorrow People. On the other hand, Cara, John and Russell offer Stephen a different type of family and a home where he truly belongs. Unwilling to turn his back on humanity or the world of the Tomorrow People, Stephen sets out on his own path — a journey that could take him into the shadowy past to uncover the truth about his father’s mysterious disappearance, or into an unknown future with THE TOMORROW PEOPLE.
Here’s where you can follow on your socials to keep up with what looks to be an amazing show!
I am sad that ARROW is on hiatus, because I love the show. Stephen Amell talked with IGN about Arrow’s Season Two.
IGN TV: The finale went so big. Were you shocked to find out that they were actually gonna have Malcolm succeed in that way?
Stephen Amell: Yeah, I mean, I knew elements of the finale by the early part of this year. I like it because, again, there’s nothing that we promise or tease in the show that we don’t deliver on. There was a device, there was a bomb — whatever you wanna call it — and whenever the bomb doesn’t go off, it’s kinda disappointing, so I’m glad that they went there, as hard as it was.
IGN: So when you pick up, how is Oliver going to deal with everything that has happened?
Amell: We’re just going to find everybody in a different place. I think we’re actually going to find Oliver literally in a different place at the beginning of next year. It’s our second season, but it’s kind of like a new series. So I’m excited.
IGN: How do you think he’s going to process the loss of Tommy?
Amell: Not well. The reason that he was the vigilante, the Hood, all that stuff is gone now. Merlyn’s been stopped, the list is essentially somewhat obsolete, the Glades are destroyed. If he’s going to become the vigilante again or something different, he’s gonna need a new reason.
