First Details About New 'Torchwood' or "Jack Is Back"
Oh, this is the sort of thing makes me wanna' do the Happy Dance! The first few details about the next 'Torchwood' series have been released. Aside from being produced by the cable channel, Starz!, we also know that:
-- The new series is titled "Torchwood: The New World"
-- It will be set a few years after the previous Torchwood series, "Children of Earth", in a world where Torchwood is only talked about in whispers and thought to be only a legend.
-- The new series will featured two new characters, a CIA agent and a CIA analyst, who come across some presumably alien-based information that sends them running for their lives. The two American agents end up teaming with Gwen Cooper and Capt. Jack Harkness in order to deal with this new threat.
-- This series IS a reboot. Executive producer Julie Gardner and creator Russell T. Davies want to bring in a new audience.
I've said it before. I'm going to say it again. I, as well as the millions of 'Torchwood' faithful eagerly awaiting this next chapter, simply CANNOT wait for this to debut next summer!
Much thanks to my pal, kleedrac, for the heads up!
