When will 'Invasion' release?
Invasion is all set to release globally on Apple TV+ with the first three episodes coming out on October 22, followed by new episodes weekly, every Friday. The 10-episode sci-fi drama series is from Academy and Emmy Award-nominated writer/producer/director Simon Kinberg and David Weil.
Strong parallels between Apple TV+'s Invasion and the H.G. Wells classic War of the Worlds can be noticed as well as the title Invasion and the tagline 'Hold onto your humanity' evokes the classic 1956 film Invasion of the Body Snatchers and its 2007 remake The Invasion.
The official synopsis for Apple TV+'s Invasion reads:
"Earth is visited by an alien species that threatens humanity's existence. Events unfold in real time through the eyes of five ordinary people across the globe as they struggle to make sense of the chaos unraveling around them."
The alien invasion series is set against a global backdrop, with a massive budget and stunning visual effects, making it a highly-anticipated series.The official trailer for Invasion was released last month on Apple TV's YouTube channel revealing its cast - Shamier Anderson, Golshifteh Farahani, Sam Neill, Firas Nassar and Shioli Kutsuna.
Among the human cast of characters are astronauts and a ground crew in Japan, an American sheriff, and a soldier stationed in Afghanistan. The series will follow a Syrian family in Long Island.
While the invasion itself remains somewhat mysterious, a TV news chyron seen in the trailer reads, 'Unconfirmed reports of coordinated attacks' and huge damage done to various cities and spaceships can be seen hinting that the aliens do not have a peaceful relationship with humans.
