Apple TV+ has renewed their alien invasion series Invasion for a second season, as the first season of the series is wrapping up with its finale airing this week. The series follows a series of different characters all around the world as they deal with the ongoing invasion in their own way.
Invasion is created by Simon Kinberg (Star Wars Rebels) and David Weil (Hunters) and it tells the story of an alien invasion in a very grounded into realism way with many of its characters having very different backgrounds. Golshifteh Farahani plays the role of a Syrian woman trying to make a life for herself and her family in Long Island, Sam Neil plays the role of a veteran sheriff close to retirement, and Shamier Anderson plays the role of a soldier fighting in Afghanistan. The series also stars Shioli Kutsuna, Firas Nassar, Billy Barratt, Azhy Robertson, Tara Moayedi, and Daisuke Tsuji.
Kinberg showed his appreciation to Apple in this statement for giving an opportunity to explore the story in this series:
“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 at Apple TV+ showed his excitement about the show’s continuation in this statement:
“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.”
Invasion Season 1 is airing its finale this week on December 10.
