From executive producers Julie Plec (The Vampire Diaries) and Greg Bertanti (Arrow) comes The Tomorrow People. Debuting this fall on the CW, the series follows a group of people who discover they are humanity’s next evolutionary step. Hounded by Ultra, a shadowy organization whose aim is to ‘put down’ all genetically advanced – and therefore dangerous – aberrations, the Tomorrow People hide underground. Check out the CW’s official logline below along with a brand new promo from the recent LA pilot episode screening. At first glance we’ve got an Arrow/Jumper feel from the footage we’ve seen. This is almost certainly one for CW fans to keep an eye on this Fall.

They are the next evolutionary leap of mankind, a generation of humans born with paranormal abilities — the Tomorrow People. Stephen Jameson stands at the crossroads between the world we know and the shifting world of the future. Up until a year ago, Stephen was a “normal” teenager — until he began hearing voices and teleporting in his sleep, never knowing where he might wake up. Now, Stephen’s issues have gone far beyond the usual teenage angst, and he is beginning to question his sanity. In desperation, Stephen decides to listen to one of the voices in his head, and it leads him to his first encounter with the Tomorrow People — John, Cara and Russell — 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, Ultra sees the Tomorrow People as a very real existential threat from a rival species, and the outcast group has been forced to hide out in an abandoned subway station just beneath the surface of the human world.
