Apple TV+ today unveiled the premiere date and a first look at season two of its ambitious series Invasion, which will return globally on Wednesday, August 23, 2023. The series comes from Academy Award-nominated and two-time Emmy Award-nominated producer Simon Kinberg (X-Men films, Deadpool films, The Martian) and David Weil (Citadel).
Executive produced by Boat Rocker, Invasion is a sweeping, character-driven science fiction drama series that follows an alien invasion through different perspectives around the world.
Invasion Season 2 will debut with the first episode of its ten-episode second season, followed by one new episode weekly, every Wednesday through October 25, 2023, on Apple TV+.
The action-packed second season of Invasion picks up just months later with the aliens escalating their attacks in an all-out war against the humans.
New series regulars joining season two include Enver Gjokaj, Nedra Marie Taylor and Naian González Norvind.
“I couldn’t be more excited about the return of ‘Invasion’ on Apple TV+,” said series co-creator and executive producer Simon Kinberg. “It’s a bigger, more intense season that drops our viewers into a wide-scale, global battle from the start.
“At its core, the show is about the power of the human spirit and the emotional connections that hold us together especially when facing incredible obstacles.”
The first season of Invasion is now streaming globally on Apple TV+. Since its premiere, the series has been praised as a “must-watch,” an “expertly crafted sci-fi series,” and a “gorgeously filmed global thriller.”
Invasion has also been hailed for its “fantastical, action-packed plot,” its “grand scale,” and for its ability to be both “gripping and refreshingly patient.” Star Golshifteh Farahani was also lauded as a “standout star” and a “force on screen.”
In addition to series creators Simon Kinberg & David Weil, Audrey Chon, David Witz, Alik Sakharov, Andrew Baldwin and Katie O’Connell Marsh serve as executive producers.
