The alien takeover is far from over as Apple TV+‘s thrilling new drama Invasion is back for a second season. This time you can expect more chills, suspense and lots of aliens, of course. The new season is set to premiere Wednesday (Aug. 23), and will take place months after the shocking events of the finale.
Alien-invasion plots may seem to be in abundance, but Invasion brings a new perspective, or, in this case, five perspectives. The events of the series take place in real time through the eyes of five different characters spread across the globe. This way, viewers get to see how people from different backgrounds are impacted by the ensuing invasion around them. The upcoming second season picks up with the humans seemingly having won the battle — at least according to the show’s news reports. It’s clear from the trailer, though, that the aliens are very much alive and thirsty for revenge, making the war far from over.
Academy Award-nominated and two-time Emmy Award-nominated producer Simon Kinberg and David Weil created the series, which stars Shamier Anderson, Golshifteh Farahani, Sam Neill, Firas Nassar and Shioli Kutsuna.
