Season 2

Resurrection is an American fantasy drama television series developed by Aaron Zelman and based on the book The Returned by Jason Mott which follows the residents of Arcadia, Missouri, whose lives are forever changed when their deceased loved ones suddenly start to return from the dead, unaged since their deaths.

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 a 60-year-old 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 recognises them as his parents. Lucille is overjoyed at the seeming miracle of her son's reappearance. Henry is reluctant to accept that Jacob is back.

Those closest to the family want answers, including Sheriff Fred Langston (Matt Craven), whose wife Barbara drowned 30 years ago while trying to save Jacob, and Fred's daughter, Maggie (Devin Kelley), a local doctor.

Pastor Tom Hale (Mark Hildreth) seeks a spiritual reason for what's happening in his community. When things take an even more shocking turn, Maggie's life-long friend, Elaine Richards (Samaire Armstrong), finds herself drawn into Arcadia's growing mystery.

Bellamy, an outsider in the town, joins forces with Maggie to figure out why the unexplainable is happening in Arcadia. As their investigation plays out, Maggie learns some unsettling truths about her own past.

Will they be able to solve the mystery of Arcadia before the rest of the world catches on to events there? And will they be able to protect Jacob from forces beyond their control?

In the Season 2 premiere, Bellamy awakens alone and abandoned at Arcadia's outskirts, missing a week of his life. As his memory returns, he has a shocking revelation.

Meanwhile, Arcadia welcomes one more Returned: Margaret Langston (special guest star Michelle Fairley), the formidable matriarch of the Langston clan. Mother of Henry and Fred (Kurtwood Smith, Matt Craven), she has been dead for over three decades.

Margaret brings with her knowledge of the Langston family's dark past, a past she is determined to keep hidden. Her return has consequences for the entire family.

Resurrection stars Omar Epps (House) as J. Martin Bellamy, Frances Fisher (Titanic) as Lucille Langston, Matt Craven (Crimson Tide, A Few Good Men) as Fred Langston, Devin Kelley (Chernobyl Diaries, The Chicago Code) as Maggie Langston, Mark Hildreth (The Tudors) as Pastor Tom Hale, Samaire Armstrong (Entourage, The O.C.) as Elaine Richards, Landon Gimenez as Jacob and Kurtwood Smith (That '70s Show) as Henry Langston.

The series was developed by Aaron Zelman (Damages, The Killing), who is executive producer. Michele Fazekas & Tara Butters and JoAnn Alfano are executive producers. Dan Attias is director and executive producer. Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner are executive producers for Plan B and Jon Liebman is executive producer for Brillstein Entertainment. The pilot was directed by Charles McDougall.

Resurrection is produced by ABC Studios.
