What happens when the people you have mourned and buried suddenly appear on your doorstep as if not a day's gone by? The lives of the people of Arcadia are forever changed when their deceased loved ones return. Based on the novel by Jason Mott.

What if someone you lost, returned?

Resurrection, ABC's spring drama based on the Jason Mott novel The Returned, asks that very question in the first official poster, which The Hollywood Reporter exclusively debuts.

The hourlong drama centers on the residents of Arcadia, Miss., whose lives are forever changed when their loved ones return from the dead as if time never passed.

Instead of focusing on the sci-fi aspect of the story, the poster gives significant real estate to a mother cradling her young son, almost as if she is in protective mode. (In one of the show's mysteries, an 8-year-old boy suddenly returns to his family after dying three decades earlier.)

Omar Epps, Frances Fisher, Matt Craven, Devin Kelley, Mark Hildreth, Samaire Armstrong, Sam Hazeldine, Landon Gimenez and Kurtwood Smith star in the series from executive producer Aaron Zelman (Damages, The Killing).
