Containment cast previews story about survival

Posted on

When you’re telling the story of a deadly viral outbreak, things get very real very quickly. And in the CW’s newest show Containment, it’s safe to say the intensity begins with the very first second of its first episode. 

Containment, which follows a number of individuals as they handle an outbreak in Atlanta, wastes no time in launching its hauntingly realistic portrayal of how society reacts to a seemily unbeatable threat. EW visited the set and talked to the cast members about what fans can expect from the show.

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