TV show description:
This supernatural crime drama revolves around a chief of police who moves from Chicago to an upscale private community. He realizes that the neighbors aren’t quite who they appear to be on the outside.

Nick Monohan (Frank Grillo) is the new Chief of Police for The Gates, and he’ll do anything he can to protect his wife Sarah and their kids, Charlie and Dana. He’s used to working the tougher big city police cases and is ill-prepared for what he finds in his new community. For one thing, he knows there’s something going on with the Radcliffs, but isn’t sure just what. His wife Sarah (Marisol Nichols) is clearly the one who keeps her family together emotionally. As a product of Chicago’s south side, she struggles to fit in but soon she begins to bond with a few of her neighbors and also figures out some of their secrets.

Claire Radcliff (Rhona Mitra) seems like she has a perfect life with a perfect house and perfect family. But, she has a secret — a big hunger for something that she shouldn’t. She and her husband, Dylan (Luke Mably), have a daughter named Emily (Georgia Cole) and are well-aware they could lose everything if Claire can’t keep her addiction in check. Dylan is the CEO of a biotech research firm, and because of his wife’s addiction, he places a lot of value on privacy.

TV show supportA high school student, Charlie Monohan (Travis Caldwell) wasn’t happy to leave the public schools of Chicago in favor of The Gates Academy, but it gets easier the closer he gets with schoolmate Andie Bates (Skyler Samuels). Andi is best friends with Mia Mueller (Devyn A. Tyler) and friends with nearly everyone else. She’s a good student and the archaetypical girl-next-door. She and her father moved from Seattle to The Gates after her mom died in a tragic accident. Her boyfriend, Brett Crezski (Colton Haynes), is on the football team, and in some ways he’s the male version of Andie. He has a dangerous side to him though that he’s struggling to keep hidden.

Mia’s mom, Peg Mueller (Victoria Platt), is the town physician and herbologist. More than that though she’s known for having discretion, and that matters in this small town more than anything else. There’s one person in town that doesn’t consider her a friend however — Devon Buckley (Chandra West). She’s the owner of Devon’s Day Spa and the ex-wife of the owner of The Gates, Frank Buckley (Brett Cullen). She provides miracle cures at the Day Spa but patrons can sometimes end up paying more than expected.

Nick has two deputies in the police department, Marcus Jordan (Justin Miles) and Leigh Turner (Janina Gavankar). Marcus has a very eager and cheerful attitude that helps him get along with almost everyone in The Gates. He’s not the wittiest or sharpest person, but he gets by with a great work ethic. He’s stoked to learn the ropes from a big city cop like Nick. Leigh is somewhat his antithesis; witty, sharp, and very confident. She can be intimidating. When she allows herself to show some vulnerability, it appears she might just be hiding something.

    I am disappointed about finding out there is not a second season to this show. I just found it on Netflix. I do not remember ever seeing it on the air or any advertisements for it whenever it is that it first aired. But if they were to bring this show back now, I think people would LOVE it even more. Especially since sci-fi, fantasy, supernatural stuff is everywhere now a days. At least this has the crime drama thriller aspect added into it that will set it apart from the rest. (not that I don’t love the rest but variety is important as well as a niche.)

  5. Paul says

    I guess the hype ABC hoped for from the cancellation of the show has been gotten… If they really have people that take polls they will know that viewers have been left in an unwarranted suspense for too long…
    Suffice to say “Pls just try another Season” and stop this agonizing suspense u putting viewers through…

    PLEASE PLEASE KEEP MAKING MORE SEASON OF THIS SHOW??!! At least run another season and see how that goes. I just finished Season 1 on Netflix & completely loved this show, i even got other to watch & like it as well. We gotta find out what happens with Charlie, does he go looking for Andie now that he’s special too? And what about Devon, whats gonna happen to her, will she get hunted now & will she escape? I also want to know what happens with the Radcliffs since they killed some of their own kind! PLEASE MAKE ANOTHER SEASON?!

  7. Courtney Vance says

    This show shouldn’t be cancelled because there are so many more things we have to find out. Like whats going to happen to Charlie. PLEASE DON’T CANCEL THE SHOW.
