The CW has released a brand-new trailer for its upcoming apocalyptic sci-fi TV series, The Messengers.

The video centers on the newly revealed five Angels of the Apocalypse, who are tasked to stop the Devil (who looks pretty cool, in that fiery kind of way) and prevent the whole “The End Is Near” thing. It's a nice clip that builds some excitement for the show -- at least, it looks a tad better than the first two minutes of the pilot we got to see back in November of last year.

Have a look:

This is the show’s synopsis:

When a mysterious object plummets to Earth, the blinding explosion it causes sends out a shock wave that instantly connects five strangers who awaken after the pulse with extraordinary gifts they can barely believe. Most mysterious of all is a figure known only as “The Man,” who brings death and suffering wherever he appears. The wheels of Revelation have begun to turn, and these five newly christened Angels of the Apocalypse may be the only hope for preventing the impending Rapture.

The new CW series stars Shantel VanSanten (Gang Related, One Tree Hill), Jon Fletcher (City of Dreams), Sofia Black-D’Elia (Betrayal, Gossip Girl), JD Pardo (Revolution), Joel Courtney (Super 8), Anna Diop (Everybody Hates Chris), Craig Frank (Mixology) and Diogo Morgado (Son of God) as The Man.

The Messengers will premiere on The CW on April 17. Will this be on your must-watch list?
