As previously announced, ABC’s new drama Resurrection will premiere on the network on Sunday, March 9th. The network however has changed its timeslot, from 10pm to 9pm.
As a result, Revenge is shifting to 10pm. Currently in its third season, Revenge has been seeing some serious declines in the ratings. Earlier this month, the numbers fell to a 1.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 5.49 million total viewers. The show will return from its winter hiatus on March 9th.
Here’s how ABC describes Resurrection:
The people of Arcadia, Missouri are forever changed when their deceased loved ones suddenly start to reappear. An 8-year-old American boy (Landon Gimenez) wakes up alone in a rice paddy in a rural Chinese province with no idea how he got there. Details start to emerge when the boy, who calls himself Jacob, recalls that his hometown is Arcadia, and an Immigration agent, J. Martin Bellamy (Omar Epps), takes him there. The home he claims as his own is occupied by an elderly couple, Henry (Kurtwood Smith) and Lucille Langston (Frances Fisher), who lost their son, Jacob, more than 30 years ago.
While they look different, young Jacob recognizes them as his parents. Those closest to the family try to unravel this impossible mystery, including Sheriff Fred Langston (Matt Craven), whose wife Barbara, drowned 30 years ago while trying to save Jacob. But this boy, who claims to be the deceased Jacob, knows secrets about his own death that no one else knows — secrets that Fred’s daughter, Maggie Langston (Devin Kelly), will begin to investigate and discover to be true.
“Resurrection” stars Omar Epps (“House”) as J. Martin Bellamy, Matt Craven (“Crimson Tide,” “A Few Good Men”) as Fred Langston, Devin Kelley (“Chernobyl Diaries,” “The Chicago Code”) as Maggie Langston, Frances Fisher (“Titanic”) as Lucille Langston, Kurtwood Smith (“That ’70s Show”) as Henry Langston, Sam Hazeldine (“The Raven”) as Caleb Richards, Samaire Armstrong (“Entourage,” “The O.C.”) as Elaine Richards, Mark Hildreth (“Dragon Ball Z”) as Tom and Landon Gimenez as Jacob.
