Renewed: Invasion

Second wave of alien attacks coming on Apple TV sci-fi.

Alien attack drama Invasion, by Simon Kinberg (X-Men, Deadpool, The Martian) and David Weil (Hunters), has been renewed for a second season.

The news comes ahead of the finale tomorrow on Apple TV+.

Set across multiple continents, the series stars Golshifteh Farahani, Shamier Anderson, Shioli Kutsuna, Firas Nassar, Billy Barratt, Azhy Robertson, Tara Moayedi, Daisuke Tsuji and Sam Neill.

“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,” said Simon Kinberg.

“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,” said Matt Cherniss, head of programming for Apple TV+. “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.”

  1. I probably should have put money on the prospect of Invasion getting renewed, the production does tick all the boxes Apple+ executives would find desirable for bankrolling a two or three season show. Perhaps the clue to Invasion’s success is that some armchair forum ‘critics’ think the show has been so bad they actually want to see the end (me too), surely there will be a final episode with an answer to make all the waiting worthwhile or will the show conclude still the same mess it began, or maybe the makers of Invasion are film making geniuses after all.
