The network has also ordered a pilot about nuns from ‘Jane the Virgin’s’ Jennie Snyder Urman.
The CW is planning for the return of The 4400.
The broadcast network has handed out a straight to series order for a remake of the sci-fi series that aired on USA from 2004-07. Additionally, The CW has ordered pilots for a live-action, grown-up Powerpuff Girls from Diablo Cody and for projects from Ava DuVernay and Jane the Virgin showrunner Jennie Snyder Urman.
The CW put a remake of The 4400 in development more than two years ago. Like the original, the new version will focus on 4,400 overlooked, undervalued and marginalized people who disappeared over the past 100 years who are all returned in an instant, having not aged at all and with no idea what happened. They also discover they’ve been returned with upgrades, and likely for a specific purpose.
