I'm referring to the Anthony Michael Hall, Nicole DeBoer series of 2002. Senator Stillson was a very different character from either the book or the movie, and had a lot more development.

Does anyone have any information on what the final resolution of the apocalyptic storyline was to be?

It probably didn't help that the creator died two years before the show was cancelled. – Solemnity Jan 16 '13 at 2:02
Yup. I felt like the show stayed pretty strong throughout, though. I was bummed that year when they cancelled both that and the 4400. He made a great contribution to DS9 as well, from what I understand. – Chris B. Behrens Jan 16 '13 at 4:27

According to sci-fi blogger John Keegan, the "cliffhangers" at the series end were actually pretty well resolved;

As it stands, this could be the series finale. The writers left the door open, especially in terms of Armageddon, but nearly every character arc has come to a point of resolution. Walt’s legacy is complete, Purdy has turned the corner on his search for redemption, Bruce has found a life for himself, and Johnny is with Sarah and JJ.

There is one hint for the future, if the series is renewed for a seventh season. Had Sarah remained with Stillson, her presence would have prevented Armageddon (or so Herb’s visionary statement seemed to imply).

In 2008 actor Anthony Michael Hall stated that he was hoping that there would be a sequel film but that the show itself "ran its course" suggesting that any further plot developments would have been written after confirmation was received that the show had been reprieved.

If you want an idea of how the show was likely to progress, you can view a show bible for series 4 here. It's pretty much "Monster of the week" territory from season 3 onwards...
