'Tomorrow People' Stars Prep for Monday Move With Cheeky Promo (Video)

The CW moves the sci-fi drama from Wednesdays, recruiting Mark Pellegrino and Madeleine Mantock to help spread the word.

The Tomorrow People is heading to a new night starting next week. To get the word out, The CW tasked castmembers to film special promos.

In a spot released Wednesday, Mark Pellegrino (Jedikiah) and Madeleine Mantock (Astrid) are in a find themselves in a tense showdown inside an Ultra interrogation room.

Jedikiah: "I know you know Astrid... The Tomorrow People -- they're not where they're supposed to be. Where are they?" But Astrid's not biting. It takes a gun pointed at her head to prompt an answer about the new Monday time slot.

"Good... I'll be watching." The question is, will viewers?

Executive producer Phil Klemmer told The Hollywood Reporter earlier this month that he was "excited for the opportunity about making a foothold" on Mondays. "We're doing a couple guerilla campaigns and promos that we shot in between takes. We're hoping to get the word out and I feel like our fans are super loyal and I feel like they're going to travel with us and hopefully their friends," he said.

The Tomorrow People premieres in its new Monday home starting March 17 at 9 p.m. on The CW.
