The Others is an American television series created by John Brancato and Michael Ferris, and produced by Delusional Films, NBC Studios, and DreamWorks Television. It ran for 13 40-minute episodes from February 5, 2000 to June 10, 2000, airing on NBC in the US, Five in the UK and on Nine in Australia. It concerned a group of people with various psychic talents as they encountered different, and often evil, paranormal forces. It was an ensemble show.
Primary focus is on a student, Marian Kitt, as she came to terms with her frequently unwanted abilities. Although the series gradually built up an overall storyline of a strong evil power targeting the group, its cancellation meant that this was never properly resolved.
Note that the episodes were broadcast in a different order than shown here. This list presents the episodes chronologically within the timeline of the story. For example, the sixth episode, "Luciferous", would have been second in the story arc, as it deals with Marian's decision to join the group. Similarly, the 12th episode, "Life is for the Living", comes at the end of the story, whereas the 13th episode deals with earlier events and, if taken as the final installment, leaves the story unresolved.

Tobe Hooper directed one episode, "Souls On Board", and the series' writers included Glen Morgan and James Wong (also executive producers, with Brancato and Ferris), who had previously written for shows including The X-Files and Millennium and created, produced and written for Space: Above and Beyond. Morgan's wife Kristen Cloke played the significant role of Allison/The Woman in the episodes "The Ones That Lie in Wait" and "Life Is for the Living".
