Media outlets are reporting that sci-fi drama series Invasion has been renewed for a second season at Apple.
The only brief synopsis given for the series is as follows:
We are not alone. Extraterrestrial beings have made their way to Earth from across the universe. Civilization could collapse. And survival is up to you.
The renewal comes ahead of the season one finale this Friday on the streaming service, with the first season written and executive produced by Simon Kinberg and David Weil. Jakob Verbruggen has been directing this season as well as serving as executive producer. Other executive producers on the series include Audrey Chon, Amy Kaufman, Elisa Ellis, Andrew Baldwin, and Katie O’Connell Marsh.
Simon Kinberg released a statement saying:
I’m profoundly grateful to Apple for being so supportive every step of the way, and trusting us to make a deeply human, emotional alien-invasion story. And most of all I’m thankful to our amazing fans, without whom we wouldn’t have this opportunity to continue the invasion. I’m super excited about what we’re planning for season two, expanding our universe in the most intimate and epic ways.
Matt Cherniss, head of programming for Apple TV+, also released a statement saying:
From day one, we have been hooked on this unique, engrossing and very human telling of an invasion story which deftly explores how the lives of different characters around the world are impacted when Earth is under siege. It has been so rewarding to witness global audiences respond to the brilliant performances, the captivating mystery and the sweeping cinematic vision, not to mention some pretty terrifying alien intruders. We couldn’t be more excited for viewers to see what Invasion creators David Weil and Simon Kinberg have in store for these characters – as well as our planet – in season two.
The first season stars Sam Neill, Shamier Anderson, Golshifteh Farahani, Firas Nassar, Shiori Kutsuna, Aziz Capkurt, Billy Barratt, Azhy Robertson, Tara Moayedi and Daisuke Tsuji.
