Childhood's End - Season 1

Calling all fellow Canadian science fiction geeks! Arthur C. Clarke’s classic novel Childhood’s End is being adapted for the small screen and will premiere next week on Showcase! The three-night, six-hour miniseries follows the peaceful invasion of the mysterious Overlords, which begins decades of apparent utopia. The Overlords eliminate poverty, war and sickness from the world… but at what cost?

I’m also geeking out over the cast for this show. Charles Dance (Tywin Lannister from Game of Thrones!) is the ambassador of the Overlords, and likely about as trustworthy here as he was in Westeros. Julian McMahon is the founder of a research station, and while he’s probably best known for Nip/Tuck, I will forever know him as Phoebe Halliwell’s demonic boyfriend Cole in Charmed. Yael Stone, who is the utterly lovable but creepily stalkerish Lorna Morello in Orange is the New Black, plays a woman determined to find out the truth about the Overlords. Finally, Colm Meaney is in the cast as well, playing someone named Wainwright, and his name is certainly familiar to many Trekkies as Chief O’Brien.

Childhood’s End will be broadcast on Showcase in a three-night, six-hour miniseries event on December 14, 15 and 16 from 8 – 10 pm ET / 9 – 11 pm PT.

  1. That’s a tough question! I guess I would want to eliminate poverty because I think the world would be much more peaceful if everyone had a warm bed and a full belly.
