‘The Messengers’ First Look Preview & Premiere Date (VIDEO)

Here’s a sneak peek at The Messengers — a new series from The CW.

This looks really promising!

So basically five people get hit by some sort of shockwave from a “meteor” that turns out to be an evil person. The five get superpowers and are apparently angels? I like it!

The series premieres Friday, April 10, 2015 at 9 PM ET. Wait, a Friday??? Looks like they are targeting the Grimm crowd.

Watch the video here:
