It’s no secret we are really looking forward to the new Torchwood: Miracle Day series debuting on Starz in July. Obviously, this is a pretty big deal for fans of the show as it will be a chance to see some of their favorite characters return as well as new ones teaming up with them for big time adventures in the States where the fate of the world is at stake.
The series already has mainstays John Barrowman, Eve Myles, and Kai Owen as well as newcomers Mekhi Phifer, Bill Pullman and Alexa Havins. Now, via a release from Starz, we know the series will get some great guest stars as well.
Check out the full scoop on all the action and who’s going to be on the show from the official press release from Starz:
Today, the network announced that in addition to Torchwood alumni, John Barrowman, Eve Myles, and Kai Owen and new headliners, Mekhi Phifer, Bill Pullman and Alexa Havins, that the 10-episode, hour-long series will also feature an impressive list of guest stars: Wayne Knight (“Seinfeld,” Jurassic Park), C. Thomas Howell (“Southland,” The Outsiders), Ernie Hudson (“OZ,” Ghostbusters), Nana Visitor (“Star Trek: Deep Space Nine”), John DeLancie (“Star Trek: The Next Generation”), Mare Winningham (Mildred Pierce, George Wallace) and Frances Fisher (Titanic, The Lincoln Lawyer).
Additional actors starring in the cult sensation include: Arlene Tur (“Crash,” Eat Pray Love) and Lauren Ambrose (“Six Feet Under,” The Other Woman) who join the cast in an extended guest role. The show’s original creator, writer/producer Russell T Davies, serves as executive producer along with BBC Worldwide Productions’ SVP Julie Gardner, with Davies also serving as show-runner for “Torchwood: Miracle Day.”
“Torchwood: Miracle Day” begins with a day when nobody dies. The result: a population boom, overnight. With all the extra people, resources are finite. It’s said that in four month’s time, the human race will cease to be viable. But this can’t be a natural occurrence – someone’s got to be behind it. It’s a race against time as C.I.A. agent Rex Matheson investigates a global conspiracy. The answers lie within an old, secret British institute. As Rex keeps asking “What is Torchwood?,” he’s drawn into a world of adventure, and a threat to change what it means to be human, forever.
Awesome, right? Cant’ wait for this. Come on July, hurry up.
