The Gates Preview: ABC's Supernatural Drama Series

Later this month, ABC will premiere their new supernatural-drama series The Gates. We have some information about the show, as well as some video clips to share with you, which should give you a good idea of what this series is all about.

Reading ABC’s series synopsis below, The Gates almost sounds like your typical neighborhood-centered drama series but you’ll see as the description goes on, there’s a bit of a twist as there’s something supernaturally mysterious going on in this cozy little community. Check out the video clips further down to get a better idea of just how different this place is.

“Nestled inside a private mountain community are The Gates. The image of perpetual suburban bliss, each street is lined with perfectly manicured homes protected by the massive iron gates, but a dark and delicious secret is buried just beneath the surface of this picturesque neighborhood.Like most families that settle inside The Gates, the Monohans are unmoored from a complicated life they abandoned in Chicago. Named the new police chief of The Gates, Nick Monahan is expecting a change of pace in this quiet suburb. His wife, Sarah, and their children, Charlie and Dana, are embarking on new adventures as well. Their house is to die for, but despite the excitement, Sarah is still burdened with the revelation that her husband may not be the man she thought he was. And Charlie and Dana will face some challenges of their own: Along with navigating the trials and tribulations of adolescence, they'll face the daunting task of fitting into their new upscale school where their new friends run in tight knit packs.There's something very different about this place, almost... haunting. Unions will be complicated by friends with an unnatural influence. Insatiable housewives will struggle with ravenous cravings, and teenagers will be cursed with keeping their beastly instincts in check. The Monohans are facing an uncertain fate, and Nick is about to get tangled up in a mystery in which he'll begin to piece together the dark truth about their new home, and the supernatural elements that lurk behind the shadows of The Gates.The Gates stars Frank Grillo as Nick Monohan, Marisol Nichols as Sarah Monahan, Rhona Mitra as Claire Radcliff, Luke Mably as Dylan Radcliff, Travis Caldwell as Charlie Monohan, Skyler Samuels as Andie Bates, Colton Haynes as Brett Crezski, Chandra West as Devon, Victoria Platt as Peg Mueller, Justin Miles as Marcus Jordan and Janina Gavankar as Leigh Turner.The Gates is produced by Fox Television Studios.
