The Family ABC

Joan Allen's Family Reaches Its Breaking Point in Poster for ABC Drama

ABC’s primetime lineup is getting some new neighbors this spring, and it seems they are in a very fragile state.

TVLine can exclusively reveal the official poster for The Family, the network’s upcoming drama about the Warren clan and the events that transpire when their presumed-dead son (played by Psych‘s Liam James) suddenly returns years after a disappearance — but is he really who he says he is?

Joan Allen (The Killing) stars as Warren matriarch Claire, whose political aspirations are helped by her family’s tragedy. Rupert Graves (Sherlock), Alison Pill (The Newsroom) and Zach Gilford (Friday Night Lights) round out the cast.

The Family debuts Thursday, March 3, at 9/8c, before moving to its regular time slot on Sundays at 9/8c.

Check out the key art below — in which the Warren clan’s cracks are already beginning to show — then share your early thoughts on the series.

  1. Nice post. I learn something new and challenging on websites
    I stumbleupon every day. It will always be interesting to read content
    from other authors and use a little something from their sites.

    What is up with Zach Gilford’s hair in that poster?

    Isn’t this a lot like ABC’s Resurrection from a few years ago?

    • Natasha says:

      Not even close to that. In Resurrection, the boy was actually dead and returned in the age he died. Also other dead people also started returning.
      In this show, the boy was kidnapped and presumed dead and he returns as a teenager.

        Ditto; the point of this show is that they are not sure if it really is him, not that he came back from the dead. It’ll be interesting to see how the DNA question is handled.

    So glad to see that Joan Allen from hometown of Rochelle, IL is coming to TV in a series. Wishing her success in this new role.

    I missed the pilot and I am so upset! Are you going to repeat it? I really hope so!!!!!!

    There is no way they can stop this show now. This show is GREAT!!!!!!!!!! The network needs to give this show more time. I have been telling everyone to watch it
