TV show description:
The people of Arcadia, Missouri are forever changed when a deceased loved one suddenly returns. An eight-year-old American boy wakes up alone in a rice paddy in a rural Chinese province with no idea of how he got there. Details start to emerge when the sweet and sensitive boy — who calls himself Jacob Langston (Landon Gimenez) — recalls that his hometown is Arcadia, and an Immigration agent/former cop, 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). They lost their son, Jacob, more than 30 years ago when he drowned. While they look different, young Jacob recognizes them as his parents. Those closest to the family try to unravel this impossible mystery — but this boy who claims to be the deceased Jacob knows secrets about his own death that no one else knows. Lucille is delighted to have her beloved boy back again while Henry can’t help thinking that it’s a cruel mistake.

Agent Bellamy joins forces with local doctor Maggie Langston (Devin Kelley) to figure out why the unexplainable is happening. She’s the daughter of the local Sheriff and the niece of the Langstons. Her mother, Barbara, died more than 30 years ago in the same accident that killed Jacob and discovers that the boy’s account of his death differs from what she was told by her father. Sheriff Fred Langston (Matt Craven) is an intense man with a pointed temper who adamantly does not want the incident of his wife’s death dug up and picked over.

Elaine Richards (Samaire Armstrong) is Maggie’s best friend. A single, attractive woman, Elaine is well put-together and good at her job as an assistant bank manager, but there is a fragility to her competent exterior. Being the financial and emotional support for her brother Ray has made it difficult for Elaine to live her own life.

The local minister is Tom Hale (Mark Hildreth), a town leader with a loyal flock. He has an empathetic soul that is irresistible to women. Married to Janine, he’s initially unwilling to believe in the miracle that is Jacob. But he was best buddies with the 8-year-old boy, 32 years ago, and he instantly recognizes his long-lost pal, making him question his beliefs.

Meanwhile, a mysterious and disheveled man named Caleb Richards (Sam Hazeldine) is on the path to Arcadia and ends up further complicating the town’s growing mystery.

I am a seventy-year old and, perhaps, older than your sampling group. But “Resurrection” is my favorite show…. I video tape it and play it at least twice each week. Please bring it back for a third season…it would really hurt this old man if you didn’t.

MaryAnn Masters January 26, 2015 at 6:53 pm

Renew, renew, renew. It must be renewed.

Please, despite the drop this year, keep this show on the air. The second season was actually better than the first; I have to believe word of mouth will “resurrect” Resurrection. Last three shows showed significant up-tick. ONE MORE TIME!!!
