The revived series The Tomorrow People will start in the UK on Wednesday 8th January, it has been announced.

The US-made sci-fi drama is based on the ITV series of the same name that ran between 1973 and 1979, and features the next evolutionary leap of mankind - a generation of humans born with paranormal abilities.

Episode one of the 22-part series - which stars Robbie Amell as Stephen Jameson, Luke Mitchell as John Young, Peyton List as Cara Coburn, Aaron Yoo as Russell Kwon, Madeleine Mantock as Astrid Finch, and Mark Pellegrino as Dr Jedikiah Price - will air on the digital channel E4 at 9pm.
Teenager Stephen Jameson has been hearing voices and teleporting in his sleep, never knowing where he might wake up. Now his mother is worried about his strange behaviour, most of his school friends have abandoned him, and he is beginning to question his own 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 - members of a genetically-advanced race who are capable of telekinesis, teleportation, and telepathic communication.

Stephen learns from his new friends that the Tomorrow People are being hunted down by a paramilitary group of scientists known as Ultra, led by Dr Jedikiah Price. Tempted by the idea of joining the Tomorrow People, but unwilling to turn his back on his family, Stephen sets out on his own path in an attempt to uncover the truth about the mysterious disappearance of his own father years earlier.
The show began in America on The CW on 9th October and is currently on a mid-season break after the ninth episode, returning on 15th January. The first of the one-hour instalments is known only as a pilot episode, but episodes two to 11 are understood to have the following titles:
