They must now determine how to use their gifts once they realize the fate of the world rests with them. The series stars David Ajala, Will Yun Lee, and Lizzie Brochere.

In addition, Aubuchon co-created “Caprica,” the spinoff of “Battlestar Galactica.”

“With its striking visuals and stylized narrative, ‘Falling Water’ creates a world where dreams have a dramatic impact on reality,” said Jeff Wachtel, president and chief content officer of NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment. “Gale and Blake executed a thought-provoking and resonant first season. We’re delighted to welcome Rémi to the creative team – and we can’t wait to see where he takes us next.”
