First Look: Christopher Atkins in Lifetime’s “Blue Lagoon: The Awakening”

Here it is, Christopher Atkins fans! Our first look at the original Blue Lagoon heartthrob as high-school teacher Mr. Christiansen in Blue Lagoon: The Awakening, Lifetime’s teen-centric modernization of the notorious, classic coming-of-age tale.

In the new incarnation, Atkins’ character helps in the hunt for Emma and Dean, an overachieving high-school girl and underachieving boy (played by Home and Away‘s Indiana Evans and Brenton Thwaites) who end up on a deserted island after falling off a boat while on a class trip to Trinidad.

The cast also includes Denise Richards (Anger Management) as Emma’s devastated and determined mom.

Here’s a sneak peek of the film, which premieres Saturday, June 16 at 8pm ET/PT on Lifetime.
