For those viewers who were able to make it past the first two sluggish episodes of sci-fi drama, Invasion, we have some good news for you. Apple TV has decided to renew the series for a second season.
The series follows people around the world and how they each deal with an alien invasion. ￼
The renewal for Invasion, created by Simon Kinberg and David Weil, comes two days ahead of the show’s first season finale, which debuts Friday.
“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,” said Kinberg (the X-Men franchise, Paramount+’s Twilight Zone). “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.”
“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 Plus. “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.”
