The second season of For All Mankind may have ended in April, but Apple TV+ subscribers can look forward to watching the new original sci-fi series on streaming platforms this fall. On October 22nd, Apple will release Invasion. Starring Sam Neal (Jurassic Park), Shamir Anderson (Awakening), Golshifteh Farahani (Patterson), Firas Nassar (Fauda) and Shioli Kutsuna (Deadpool 2) The story of the celestial invasion, you guessed it. The whole planet.
In the trailer Apple shared, which features Neill’s character Sheriff John Bell Tyson philosophizing about humanity’s purpose on Earth, we get a sense of the story. The main characters are spread across the globe in locations like Tokyo, London and Afghanistan. The first signs something could be amiss appear when Tyson discovers an impact crater in a farmer’s field. Eventually, all hell breaks loose, and toward the end of the clip, we get a brief glimpse of the threat to humans.
"Invasion" is not the only big budget sci-fi series to land on Apple TV+ this year. If there is no delay, Apple’s adaptation of the Isaac Asimov Foundation will also premiere in 2021.
