The CW is in the works on a reboot of sci-fi drama The 4400, according to a new report. Deadline reports that the network has tapped Craig Sweeny (Elementary) and Taylor Elmore (Justified) to develop the new take on the series. Sweeny was a writer and supervising producer on the original project.

The 4400 ran for four seasons on USA Network starting in 2004. It starred Joel Gretsch, Jacqueline McKenzie and Mahershala Ali, and had the following synopsis:

Over the course of recent history, four thousand four hundred young adults in their reproductive prime have gone missing all over the world—some disappearances happened as recently as a few weeks ago, while others date as far back as the infamous day the Soviets launched the Sputnik satellite in 1957. One day in 2019, all 4,400 show up at the sites of their original abductions. None of them have aged a day; none have any memory of where they’ve been. The so called “4400” must grapple with their return to a changed and hostile world… and also contend with the reality that they’ve come back altered in ways that none of them yet understand.
