Containment sneak peek: Chris Wood is trapped

Posted on

The CW

What happens when you’re the man in charge, and yet you can’t get your best friend out of a deadly situation? That’s only one issue that plagues Lex Carnahan (David Gyasi) when Containment premieres. 

After a viral outbreak hits the city of Atlanta, a city-wide quarantine is put in place, effectively trapping Lex’s best friend — not to mention the woman he loves — inside. 

Friendships are strained. Humanity is tested. And we’ve got your first glimpse of all the action in an exclusive sneak peek at the pilot, which sees Jake (Chris Wood), Lex’s best friend, realize just how bad things could get.

Containment premieres Tuesday, April 19 at 9 p.m. ET on The CW.
