TV show description:      
This dramatic series revolves around a generation of humans who have been born with paranormal abilities.

Up until a year ago, Stephen Jameson (Robbie Amell) was a regular teenager but one day, he began hearing voices and teleporting in his sleep. He never knew where he might wake up. Now, Stephen’s issues have gone far beyond the usual teenage angst, and he’s beginning to question his sanity.

Out of desperation, Stephen decides to listen to one of the voices in his head, and it leads him to his first encounter with John (Luke Mitchell), Cara (Peyton List), and Russell (Aaron Yoo) — the Tomorrow People. They’re 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 (Mark Pellegrino), Ultra sees the Tomorrow People as a very real existential threat from a rival species, and the outcast group has been forced to secretly live in an abandoned subway station just beneath the surface.

Trading in secrets, Jedikiah offers Stephen the chance for a normal life with his family and best friend, Astrid (Madeleine Mantock), but only 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 may take him into the shadowy past to uncover the truth about his father’s mysterious disappearance.

Series Finale:     
Episode #22 — “Son of Man”
Russell realizes his alliance with The Founder (guest star Simon Merrells) was a mistake, and tries to make up for his decision by saving Cara from an Ultra ambush. Stephen understands that he must be the one to stop The Machine and the extermination of humanity, but he fears he may be too late. Russell offers up a plan to help Stephen, but he is going to need everyone’s help, including John and Astrid, if they are going to have any chance to survive. Meanwhile, Jedikiah offers John an interesting opportunity that could have them working together again.
First aired: May 5, 2014.

    Sooooo addicted to the show right now. Crazy ending, would have never guessed who the new character with powers was going to be going to be. Going to be a crazy dynamic trying to work that into a second season, which I hope there will be. Anxiously waiting…..

    The show’s been getting stronger as the writers and cast find their feet, hopefully in time.
    The only problem I have at the minute is that some plot points seem to have been abandoned – where’s Astrid gone?
    I think this and the school story may have been axed to try to keep the show away from too much teen angst, which I understand, but Astrid could have been a slightly humanising influence on the “Tomorrow People”. I mean at one point Michael tells Steven, in a very dismissive fashion, that he’s only human after he’s forced to wear an inhibitor bracelet to negate his powers, and there’s nobody to call him on his superiority complex.
    With these threads being left behind, the writers have compensated by giving Stevens mother the requisite suspicious new boyfriend. I just hope that we can get him outed and off the show ASAP, there’s enough arcs going on without adding another long term plot to further reduce the time allotted to each weeks story.

    We really like this show and we think Robbie Amell is great! We dvr’d the episodes and had a marathon of watching all episodes. Each episode was better than the one before it and we sincerely hope they renew it for another season!

    I really like this show. they totally miscast on the main character though, and it very well may cost them.

    I hope it somehow gets picked up though.
