The CW has ordered another science fiction-tinged pilot: “The Messengers” from CBS Television Studios and Thunder Road, which follows a group of strangers who die from an energy pulse — only to awaken and learn that they must save the world from the apocalypse.

Basil Iwanyk is executive producing. Co-executive producers are Eoghan O’Donnell, who is penning the script, Kent Kubena and Ava Jamshidi.

CW’s other pilot orders this season include “iZombie,” about a med student-turned-zombie forced to work in a coroner’s office, and spinoffs of “Arrow” and “Supernatural.”
