The CW has added yet another cast member to their remake of the popular cult UK seres ‘The Tomorrow People’ in the form of Luke Mitchell, who will be best known to both Australian and UK soap fans for his role of Romeo Smith in Home and Away.
Based on the series created by Roger Price, The Tomorrow People revolves around several young people from around the world who represent the next stage in human evolution, possessing special powers, including the ability to teleport and communicate with each other telepathically. Together they work to defeat the forces of evil.
According to Hollywood Reporter Mitchell will play John Young, a member of the new species dubbed the Tomorrow People. He’s described as dark and handsome and cool under pressure. His specialty is teleportation and he’s instrumental in recruiting other gifted people to the group. Nicholas Young played the role in the original series.
The character of John Young is also the love interest for Peyton List’s (Mad Men) Cara, the female lead.
The pilot episode is to be written by Phil Klemmer (Political Animals) who will Executive produce alongside Arrow’s Greg Berlanti and The Vampire Diaries‘ Julie Plec. Berlanti Productions’ Melissa Kellner Berman will serve as a co-EP, with Danny Cannon directing the pilot for Warner Bros. Television and FremantleMedia.
