Resurrection is a television drama show that aired on ABC from 2013 through 2015. The show is an adaptation of the book "The Returned" by Jason Mott. The premise of the show is that, one day, several residents of a small town in Missouri suddenly begin to return from the dead. The show follows the reactions of the townspeople to this phenomenon, as well as their attempts to understand and explain what is happening.

The main character of Resurrection is Martin Bellamy, played by Omar Epps. Martin is an Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent who is called in to investigate when a young boy who was presumed dead suddenly returns to his family. As more and more people begin to return from the dead, Martin becomes increasingly involved in the lives of the town's residents and their efforts to make sense of what is happening.

One of the central themes of Resurrection is the idea of second chances. The returning characters are given a chance to start over and make amends for mistakes they made in their previous lives. This leads to some interesting storylines, as some of the characters struggle to figure out what their purpose is now that they have been given a second chance. Some want to make up for lost time with family members, while others are determined to right wrongs they committed in the past.

As the story unfolds, it becomes clear that the returned characters are not the same as they were before they died. They have memories of their previous lives, but they also have gaps in their knowledge and behavior that suggest they are not entirely the same people. This leads to some tension between the returned characters and the living, as well as to some intriguing mysteries that the show explores.

Resurrection is a character-driven show, with a large and diverse cast of characters that is constantly evolving as new characters return from the dead. In addition to Martin Bellamy, other key characters include the parents of the returned boy who initially sets off the story, the town sheriff who is initially skeptical of the returned characters, and a local doctor who becomes convinced that the returned are truly miraculous.

The show also incorporates elements of mystery and suspense, as the characters try to figure out why the dead are returning and what it means for the town and the world at large. There are several subplots and mysteries to keep viewers intrigued, including murders that seem to be linked to the returned characters, a mysterious government agency that may have information about the phenomenon, and a group of people who believe that the returned are the harbingers of the end of the world.

One of the strengths of Resurrection is its ability to balance its multiple storylines and themes. While the show is primarily focused on the returned characters and their impacts on the town, it also explores themes of grief, forgiveness, and faith. There are also subtle hints of a larger mythology at play, which keeps viewers engaged and interested in where the story is headed.

Overall, Resurrection is a compelling and well-crafted drama that explores a thought-provoking premise. Its strong cast, intricate storytelling, and mix of genres make it a show that is both entertaining and intellectually engaging. While the show only lasted two seasons, it has developed a dedicated following and remains a favorite of many fans of supernatural dramas.

Resurrection is a series that is currently running and has 2 seasons (22 episodes). The series first aired on March 9, 2014.
