Written and created by BAFTA Award-winner Howard Overman (Misfits, Crazyhead, Merlin) and based on H.G. Wells’ classic novel of the same name, the third season sees the return of Golden Globe winner and Emmy and Tony award nominated actor Gabriel Byrne (In Treatment).
Set in present-day France and the UK, War of the Worlds Season 3 picks up as the war between the survivors and aliens reaches a new turning point and a terrifying phenomenon grips countless people across the globe. With stakes at an all-time high, one survivor sets out to investigate, forming a tentative partnership with another unlikely hero along the way.
The pair will need to use every resource they have available to face an opposition more dangerous than ever in their fight, once again, for the survival of all humanity.
Joining the ensemble cast are BAFTA-Award winner Molly Windsor (Three Girls), Ernest Kingsley Junior, Madeleine Worral and Oliver Hembrough.
Distributed internationally by STUDIOCANAL, War of the Worlds Season 3 is executive produced by Julian Murphy and Johnny Capps for Urban Myth Films in partnership with CANAL+ and The Walt Disney Company. The third season is directed by Indra Siera and Jonas Alexander Arnby.
The second season of the series premiered on June 6, 2021. Written by Overman, War of the Worlds Season 2 consists of eight episodes.
The cast of the current season includes Golden Globe and Critics Choice Award winner Daisy Edgar-Jones (Normal People), Léa Drucker, Natasha Little, Stéphane Caillard, Adel Bencherif, Ty Tennant, Stephen Campbell Moore, Bayo Gbadamosi, Aaron Heffernan, and Emilie de Preissac.
In the first season of War of the Worlds, an alien attack all but wiped out mankind, with just a handful of humans fighting to survive.
And no one felt more rocked by the invasion than Emily (Daisy Edgar-Jones), who discovered she may have her own strange personal connection to the aliens.
War of the Worlds Season 2 sees our characters left reeling by the possibility that the invaders could be human. A tense fight to take back the planet awaits them.
For some, the sheer desperation to survive will lead them to contemplate sacrificing one of their own…
War of the Worlds is produced with support of Welsh Government funding through Creative Wales. War of the Worlds is produced by Studiocanal-backed Urban Myth Films, in partnership with CANAL+ and FOX.
