Childhood’s End Gets Air Date

1 min read

Childhood’s End, the SyFy miniseries that will feature Colm Meaney, will be airing in December.

The six-hour miniseries will be based on the Arthur C. Clarke novel of the same name.

TrekToday reported on this story earlier this year, but at that time, no airdate had been announced.

Childhood’s End follows the peaceful invasion of Earth by the alien Overlords, who promise to eliminate poverty, war and sickness – ushering in a golden age of peace, health and security for all of humankind. But why do the Overlords insist on hiding their appearance – and what do they ultimately want from Earth? While much of the world enjoys its newfound utopia, some suspect there’s a price to pay. As the truth about the Overlords’ intentions [is] revealed, humanity will discover its actual destiny may actually be a nightmare, instead of a dream.”

Meaney will take on the role of Wainwright in the production, a “powerful, confident owner of a major news organization.”

Childhood’s End will air over three consecutive nights, beginning Monday, December 14. The series will run from 8 to 10 PM (ET) each night on SyFy.

  1. Good to see Colm still working, and on a sci-fi project; even better, a miniseries on the SyFy channel.

  2. That does not sound anything like the original story, I know, I have it and have read it several dozen times. There was nothing sinister at all about the aliens, they just looked like the human idea of demons, that is it.
