"The Messengers" (TV show) is a drama series that airs on The CW.

"And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit." (Revelation 9)

In the white-hot sun of the New Mexico desert, scientist Vera Ivanov watches in fascination as a mysterious object plummets to Earth and explodes in a blinding flash, sending out a shock wave that briefly stops her heart. But Vera is not the only one affected by the blast: she is instantly and mysteriously connected to four other strangers, who also collapse only to miraculously come back to life hours later.

Erin, a young mother desperate to protect her 7-year-old daughter from an abusive ex-husband; Peter, a troubled high school student who finally lashes out to end the constant bullying he can no longer endure; Raul, a federal agent looking to escape his undercover assignment in a violent Mexican drug cartel; and Joshua, Jr., a charismatic second-generation televangelist following in his father's footsteps — all awaken after the pulse with powers they can barely believe, from inexplicable strength to the ability to heal others.

Most mysterious of all is the figure known only as The Man, who offers Vera the one thing she wants most in life — to be reunited with her kidnapped son — if she will help him with one morally complicated task. That task puts Vera on a collision course with nurse Rose Arvale who, after a seemingly random act of violence left her in a coma for seven years, suddenly begins to stir. As Joshua, Jr. prophesizes, the wheels of Revelation have begun to turn, and this group of strangers might be the only hope for preventing the impending Rapture ... or causing it.

The cast includes Shantel VanSanten ("Gang Related," "One Tree Hill") as Vera, Jon Fletcher ("City of Dreams") as Joshua Jr., Sofia Black-D'Elia ("Betrayal," "Gossip Girl") as Erin, JD Pardo ("Revolution") as Raul, Joel Courtney ("Super 8") as Peter, Anna Diop ("Everybody Hates Chris") as Rose, Craig Frank ("Mixology"), and Diogo Morgado ("Son of God," "Sol de Inverno") as The Man.

"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. The pilot was directed by Stephen Williams ("Lost").
