One of the best contemporary fiction reading experiences I’ve had over the last few years was with Justin Cronin’s The Passage. The book was one of those rare “first in a trilogy” books that was so well-done that a continuation seemed almost unnecessary.
So I’m pleased to hear that FOX has picked up The Passage (with Mark-Paul Gosselaar as Wolgast) for a run this next season. It’s been long enough that I don’t remember all of the details (and it’s no small book), so this trailer is engaging without giving too much away (or making too many easy call-backs).
FOX did a great job this past season with The Gifted, a comic book property that was basically X-Men without the X-Men. If The Passage is anywhere near as good, as well-paced and well-acted, then it should be a great television experience.
