Has the term “resurrection” ever came to your mind? Do you have any idea what is it and most importantly, have you ever wonder the possibility of it? 

What then happens to the family of the “deceased”? Should they feel elated about the return of their family member, or should they be afraid?

If your curiosity is kicking up now, here’s a piece of good news. A new TV series “Resurrection” has commenced. The first few episodes are already up on Lifetime Asia.


The people of Arcadia, Missouri are forever changed when their deceased loved ones suddenly start to reappear. An 8-year-old American boy (Landon Gimenez) wakes up alone in a rice paddy in a rural Chinese province with no idea how he got there. Details start to emerge when the boy, who calls himself Jacob, recalls that his hometown is Arcadia, and an Immigration agent, J. Martin Bellamy (Omar Epps), takes him there. The home he claims as his own is occupied by a 60-year-old couple, Henry (Kurtwood Smith) and Lucille Langston (Frances Fisher), who lost their son, Jacob, more than 30 years ago. While they look different, young Jacob recognizes them as his parents. Lucille is overjoyed at the seeming miracle of her son’s reappearance. Henry is reluctant to accept that Jacob is back. Those closest to the family want answers, including Sheriff Fred Langston (Matt Craven), whose wife Barbara drowned 30 years ago while trying to save Jacob, and Fred’s daughter, Maggie (Devin Kelley), a local doctor. Pastor Tom Hale (Mark Hildreth) seeks a spiritual reason for what’s happening in his community. When things take an even more shocking turn, Maggie’s life-long friend, Elaine Richards (Samaire Armstrong), finds herself drawn into Arcadia’s growing mystery.

Bellamy, an outsider in the town, joins forces with Maggie to figure out why the unexplainable is happening in Arcadia. As their investigation plays out, Maggie learns some unsettling truths about her own past. Will they be able to solve the mystery of Arcadia before the rest of the world catches on to events there? And will they be able to protect Jacob from forces beyond their control?

I kid you not when I say I’m really looking forward to this show. I mean, how often or usual can you find such bizarre plot? If you’re like me, someone who’s really into thrillers and mystery plots, I’m sure you’ll like it too. I’ve watched the trailer for this new TV series and it attracts me a lot. First, I see a lot of events linking to each other. From the resurrection of Jacob who died 30 years ago, to the unvealing of secrets one after another, it makes me look forward to what’s going to happen next. But the biggest question in my mind is, how did Jacob come alive? And an answer in my heart tells me that he probably didn’t die in the first place, or did he? Well, this TV series will tell.
