13 episodes

In the white-hot sun of the New Mexico desert, scientist Vera Ivanov watches in fascination as a mysterious object plummets to Earth and explodes in a blinding flash, sending out a shock wave that briefly stops her heart. But Vera is not the only one affected by the blast: she is instantly and mysteriously connected to four other strangers, who also collapse only to miraculously come back to life hours later. Erin, a young mother desperate to protect her 7-year-old daughter from an abusive ex-husband; Peter, a troubled high school student who finally lashes out to end the constant bullying he can no longer endure; Raul, a federal agent looking to escape his undercover assignment in a violent Mexican drug cartel; and Joshua, Jr., a charismatic second-generation televangelist following in his father’s footsteps – all awaken after the pulse with powers they can barely believe, from inexplicable strength to the ability to heal others. Most mysterious of all is the figure known only as The Man, who offers Vera the one thing she wants most in life – to be reunited with her kidnapped son – if she will help him with one morally complicated task. That task puts Vera on a collision course with nurse Rose Arvale who, after a seemingly random act of violence left her in a coma for seven years, suddenly begins to stir. As Joshua, Jr. prophesizes, the wheels of Revelation have begun to turn, and this group of strangers might be the only hope for preventing the impending Rapture… or causing it.

At the age of 35, Henry died for the first time, and despite many more deaths, is always reborn at 35 years old, without aging a day. With morbid experiments, he tries to get to the bottom of his inexplicable immortality, but every time he is reborn as the same old Henry. Being immortal can have its advantages. Henry has seen every corner of the world, learned many languages, climbed Mount Everest, and loved many women. But it can have its heartbreaks as well; like outliving the love of his life, Abigail. To Henry, eternity has not been a blessing – it’s a curse. Henry has spent many decades getting to know Abe, his 76 year-old friend, and the only person who knows his secret. Abe owns an antique store, which hides Henry’s lab where he searches for the secret of his immortality. His experiences with death serve him well as New York’s star medical examiner. Henry’s skills of observation are remarkable, allowing him to read people, whether dead or alive, with stunning accuracy. Like when he meets 32 year-old Detective Jo Martinez, who is investigating the victims of a fatal subway crash. She didn’t have to tell him she is a recent widow who is drinking to mask her pain. He could see that for himself. Each week, a new case and his budding friendship with Jo will reveal layers of Henry’s long and colorful life.
