October always sees spooky films and television series pop up in anticipation of Halloween, so it’s the perfect time for Syfy to premiere their new paranormal series, Ghost Wars.
The series is set in the remote Alaskan town of Port Moore, which is overrun by paranormal forces. It centers on local outcast Roman Mercer who must overcome the town’s prejudices and his own demons if he’s to harness his repressed psychic powers and save everyone from the mass haunting threatening to destroy them all.
ABOUT THE CHARACTERS
Roman (Avan Jogia) sees dead people. He is a troubled young loner, plagued by his lifelong ability to communicate with the spirit world, and yearns to be left alone by both the living and the dead. Roman is the real deal.
- Reverend Dan (Vincent D’Ononfrio) was suffering from a crisis of faith long before the ghosts arrived. It’s not his own religious convictions that trouble him, it’s the congregation’s flagging membership. But it turns out ghosts are good for business.
- Marilyn (Kristin Lehman) is the town doctor. Though she and her wife are often on the receiving end of gossip about their age difference, Marilyn’s medical skills are well-respected by the town’s population.
- Depending on who you ask, Jimmy (Kim Coates) is either a charming rogue or scam artist. A former fisherman, he now uses his boat to smuggle contraband into Port Moore.
- A pragmatic young research scientist, Landis (Kandyse McClure) hails from a small town not unlike Port Moore. This is exactly the kind of place she spent her wholelife trying to escape, but the opportunities for advancement supercede her disdain for small town culture.
- A troubled and angry man. Doug (Meat Loaf) is haunted by the horrors of his past, and Roman is a convenient scapegoat to place all the blame.
Starring Avan Jogia (Twisted), Vincent D’Onofrio (Daredevil), Kim Coates (Sons of Anarchy), Kristin Lehman (Motive), Kandyse McClure (Battlestar Galactica), and Meat Loaf.
Ghost Wars premieres tomorrow on Syfy at 10/9c.
