ABC drama Forever kicks off premiere week with two new episodes: a special sneak premiere on Monday, September 22 at 10 p.m. ET/PT, and a second, all-new episode on Tuesday, September 23 at 10 p.m. ET/PT, for its regular time period premiere.
What if you could be immortal and live forever? Would you find it a blessing or a curse? Meet Dr. Henry Morgan (Ioan Gruffudd), New York City's star medical examiner who has an unusual secret. He doesn't just study the dead to solve criminal cases -- he is trying to solve a mystery that has eluded him for over 200 years: his own inexplicable immortality. Henry's exciting, adventurous and intriguing long life has blessed him with amazing insight and observational skills, which not only impresses his new partner, Detective Jo Martinez (Alana De La Garza), but piques her curiosity about who he is. Each week, a new case and their budding friendship will peel back the layers of Henry's colorful extraordinary past.
|Every time Henry Morgan dies, he returns in water.|
However, Abe (Judd Hirsch) is Henry's best and only friend. He also is the only one who knows Henry's secret and the two men share an unconventional bond. A romantic at heart, Abe is the more optimistic of the two. However, even though he has an active social life, something is keeping him from getting serious with any woman.
As Henry soon discovers, someone else knows his secret. He may not be the only "immortal" out there. It's just part of the captivating mystery surrounding Henry's strange circumstances and his long search to uncover the cause of his condition and escape.
