TV show description:      
Hank Galliston (Anthony Edwards) is the publisher of Modern Skeptic Magazine. He’s spent his career following clues, debunking myths and cracking conspiracies. But when his beautiful wife, Laila (Jacinda Barrett), is abducted from her antique clock shop, Hank gets pulled into a more compelling mystery than he could have imagined, one that stretches around the world and back centuries.

Contained in one of his wife’s clocks is a treasure map, and what it leads to could be cataclysmic. It’s up to Hank to decipher the symbols and unlock the secrets of the map. While doing so, he must ensure that the answers don’t fall into the wrong hands — like those of a sinister, mysterious man known only as White Vincent (Michael Nyqvist).

Hank, along with his two young associates — Rachel (Addison Timlin) and Arron (Scott Michael Foster)– and FBI agent Rebecca “Beck” Riley (Carmen Ejogo), embark on a race against the clock to not only find his wife, but to save humanity.

Arriving at the entrance to New Jerusalem, Hank, Beck, Arron and the Shepherds know it’s now or never to find Rachael and stop Melanie “Mother” Lynch’s plan before it’s too late. But when the team unlock the doors, what they find is unimaginable. With faith shaken and time running out, it’s up to Hank and the team to take down Lynch and save the world before it’s too late.

    I can’t believe ABC cancelled Zero Hour . It was the program I looked forward seeing the most each week!!!! WHY DON’T THEY CHANGE TIME SLOTS. BIG DUMBY’S

    Why is it that anytime they come up with a really good show that makes you actually THINK, as opposed to watching mindless reality TV, it gets cancelled. I was really starting to get into it. ABC, you didn’t even give it a chance. ZERO HOUR, maybe you can get picked up by another network.

    Why would you cancel a good show. Every time I get interested in a good show it’s cancelled. Reality/mindless shows air forever. ABC has just started to show something of interest. Hope they reconsider.

    ABC has no sense of programming. Last Resort was a good show and cancelled. Now Zero Hour has been cancelled. WHY??? It was just getting good. It reminded me of Da Vinci Code and National Treasure. They were popular movies, ABC execs!
    Castle and Scandal are the only programs with any style and substance.

    Wow, what a great show! Even my Mom was interested in it! Can’t you at least give us the other 9 shows? What a shame that it’s been cancelled!

    I loved this show! How can they cancel it based solely on the opinions of crack-pot critics. Everyone I talked to about it LOVED it! This was a good show (reminded me of National Treasure or The DaVinci Code) in the midst of a bunch of reality crap! I agree, television lately is the dumbing down of America, it is a sad state of affairs when inane crap stays on the air. This show made me think, I love it when something engages me to solve it myself before everyone else. Come on Hollywood, bring back this awesome show!!!!! It deserves it and so do the fans!!!

    I guess it is the boob tube! At least on ABC lately. Must not have had the “required sex/bed scenes you seem to think people require. A shame people’s minds can’t be utilized anymore. Hopefully, a cable station (who seem to know quality shows) will pick it up and have the decency to finish the first season. Kudos to network TV once again!

    My husband and I are so upset that this show has been cancelled. We turned the channel and watched a different channel.We will not be turning that station on at 8:00 on Thursday evening until Zero Hour is back on T.V. Hey folks, lets all boycott this station until they bring back Zero Hour! Patricia markowitz

    ZeroHour was a nail-biting, edge of your seat exciting show. Was it doomed from the start being shown opposite Big Bang Theory? Dont know. Just know that I would love to see the other 10 episodes to see how it ends. Very disappointed.

  10. Joy says

    I am so upset that this series has been cancelled! I”m so tired of reality TV, please bring this series back. How can you leave us hanging and not finish with the next 10 episodes? DISAPPOINTED ABC, VERY DISAPPOINTED!!

  11. Lisa says

    I thoroughly enjoyed Zero hour, but clearly was in the minority. At least let us see the rest of the already taped episodes. I don’t agree with those that are bashing reality TV, as I like an awful lot of that too. But this series, was different, and unexpected.

    ABC – Put it back on.

  12. Mike Greenberg says

    I think your canceling zero hour just sucks. It was a pretty good job better then some of the other garbage you put on TV

  13. Mike says

    A great series, ABC is a bunch of dummies, they would rather have you watch stupid reality shows – well I only watch ABC for one show Once Upon A Time – rest of ABC shows suck.
