TVLine can exclusively reveal that Torchwood: Miracle Day — the rapturously anticipated fourth season of the UK phenom — will make its stateside debut on Starz on Friday, July 8.
But wait, there’s more.
Scroll down for a first look at the provocative key art for Miracle Day, which perfectly underscores the season’s explosive conceit: What would happen if the entire human race became immortal?
“Not a single person on Earth dies” Torchwood boss Russell T. Davies recently explained. “The old stay old. It’s great news for some people, but globally it’s an instant population boom. Earth relies on people dying. Suddenly you’re affecting everyone on the planet. That’s where the Torchwood team comes in.”
And what a team it is. Joining Captain Jack (John Barrowman) and Gwen (Eve Myles) on their international crusade — which includes an extended stopover in Los Angeles — will be ER‘s Mekhi Phfifer and All My Children‘s Alexa Havins. The season 4 ensemble also includes Bill Pullman as the Big Bad and Six Feet Under‘s Lauren Ambrose as a no-nonsense PR expert.
Memo to July 8: You can’t come soon enough!
