The show centers on a mysterious object crashes on earth and a group of unconnected strangers die from an energy pulse it emits, but then re-awaken to find out that they have been deemed responsible for preventing the impending Apocalypse.
While the network has decided not to renew the show, star Joel Courtney promised fans that you’ll get to see all 13 episodes.
“The CW Network will air all 13 episodes of the #TheMessengers. You definitely want to see how this series ends! #JC” Joel tweeted to his fans.
He added, “#TheMessengers is not picked up for Season 2. But I’ll be watching & tweeting with you thru the end of the series!”
Meanwhile, Raul (JD Pardo) and Vera (Shantel VanSanten) are more hesitant to believe and when they stray, there are unforeseen consequences. But when Vera discovers her gift, she finally starts to re-think her purpose.
“Path To Paradise” airs TONIGHT, Friday, May 1st @ 9PM ET/PT on The CW.
We are so excited because tonight marks the premiere of the new CW show The Messengers!
The show follows the events after a mysterious object plummets to Earth and explodes in a blinding flash, sending out a shock wave that instantly connects five strangers with extraordinary gifts, from inexplicable strength to the ability to heal others.
We caught up with star Anna Diop who gave us the scoop on her character!
“Rose is an ER Nurse who is recently engaged in the pilot episode and is showing off her new engagement ring to her best friend Pepper when she’s suddenly gunned down. The incident leaves her in a coma for 7 years until we see her finally beginning to stir,” Anna told us. “The audience will get to learn SO much more about Rose in the second episode and throughout the season!”
“The cast on this series is seriously phenomenal. It was such a blessing to work alongside each of them,” she told JJJ.” Professionally and personally they’re all amazing. [They] were my best friends for 5 months and I couldn’t have asked for a better group of people to spend that time with.”
Here are 10 other fun facts Anna told us about herself! Be sure to watch her on The Messengers TONIGHT, April 17 @ 9PM on The CW!
1. I was born in one of the most beautiful paces on Earth; a very small country on the west coast of Africa called Senegal, right on the Atlantic.
2. I’ve been studying Muay Thai for the past two years. Muay Thai is a really cool combat sport similar to Kickboxing or Tae Kwon Do.
3. My little brother Kareem is the funniest person on Earth to me. He’s on Vine as REEMTEAM and every time he makes a video, my phone sends me notification and it never fails to make me crack up.
4. I love Tennis! I played Varsity in high school for 3 years.
5. I’m a total tomboy at heart.
6. I love to sing. (When no one’s around)
7. Filming The Messengers was hands down one of the best experiences of my life.
8. My favorite food is pizza.
9. My favorite thing to do in the summer is swim. And then get out of the pool and eat pizza.
10. I would love to be on Broadway someday.

Most mysterious of all is a figure known only as The Man, who brings death and suffering wherever he appears. The wheels of Revelation have begun to turn, and these five newly christened Angels of the Apocalypse may be the only hope for preventing the impending Rapture.
