The Messengers is an American supernatural mystery drama television series created by Eoghan O'Donnell which follows the events after a mysterious object plummets to Earth, sending out a shock wave that causes five strangers to perish, only to miraculously come back to life moments later.
The group includes Vera (Shantel VanSanten), a struggling radio-astronomer searching for her missing son; Erin (Sofia Black-D'Elia), a young mother desperate to protect her seven-year-old daughter (guest star Madison Dellamea) from an abusive ex-husband (guest star Lane Garrison); Peter (Joel Courtney), a troubled high school student; Raul (JD Pardo), a federal agent looking to escape his dangerous and violent undercover assignment; and Joshua (Jon Fletcher), a charismatic second-generation televangelist.
Most mysterious of all is the figure known only as The Man (Diogo Morgado), who offers Vera the one thing she wants most in life - if she will help him with one morally complicated task which puts her on a collision course with Rose (Anna Diop), a nurse who has been in a coma for seven years.
Drawn together by fate and biblical prophecy, the "Messengers" soon learn they have supernatural gifts that might be the only hope for preventing the impending Rapture.
The Messengers is produced by CBS Television Studios and Warner Bros. Entertainment, in association with Thunder Road Pictures with executive producers Trey Callaway (Revolution, CSI: NY), Basil Iwanyk (The Town, The Expendables film franchise, Clash of the Titans film franchise) and co-executive producers Eoghan O'Donnell (Teen Wolf), Kent Kubena (the upcoming Gods of Egypt, Turistas) and Ava Jamshidi.
