“The 4400”, USA Network’s highly rated series, is starting production on its second season and returns to the cable network in June.
The show is about 4,400 people who are presumed missing or dead and then return to Earth looking exactly as they did when they disappeared. It is scheduled to premiere Sunday, June 5. The second season will pick up six months after the events of the first season, with Homeland Security agent Tom Baldwin (Joel Gretsch) having been reinstated to his job and continuing to investigate the returnees with partner Diana Skouris (Jacqueline McKenzie).
Jordan Collier (Billy Campbell), the would-be 4400 leader, has published a book about the abductees containing some rather controversial allegations about the group.
“The 4400” debuted last July to more than 7 million viewers, making it the most-watched series premiere ever on basic cable. The ratings momentum continued for the rest of the show’s five episodes, and it ended the year as ad-supported cable’s top scripted series, averaging about 6.2 million viewers.
