Apple TV+ has released the first Invasion teaser trailer for Simon Kinberg and David Weil’s forthcoming sci-fi drama series, featuring an ensemble cast led by Jurassic Park alum Sam Neill and Golshifteh Farahani (Extraction). The video brings us to different parts of the world and introduces characters from different walks of life as they all experienced a simultaneous out-of-this-world phenomenon that will change the course of their lives forever.
The series will make its global debut on Apple TV+ on October 22, with the first three episodes. After its premiere, new episodes will then premiere every Friday.
Set across multiple continents, Invasion follows an alien invasion through different perspectives around the world. 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 series is being led by: Shamier Anderson (Bruised, Awake) as Trevante Ward, a soldier stationed in Afghanistan; Golshifteh Farahani (Extraction, Body of Lies) as Aneesha Malik, a first-generation Syrian immigrant, wife, and mother living in Long Island.; Sam Neill (Jurassic World: Dominion) as Sheriff John Bell Tyson, a weathered rural lawman on the verge of retirement; Firas Nassar (Fauda) as Ahmed Malik, Aneesha’s husband and a successful businessman; and Shioli Kutsuna (Deadpool 2) as Mitsuki, an intelligent member of Japan’s JASA mission control.
Invasion is created, written, and executive produced by Simon Kinberg (Dark Phoenix) and David Weil (Hunters). Executive producers are Audrey Chon, Amy Kaufman, Elisa Ellis, Andrew Baldwin, Katie O’Connell, and Jakob Verbruggen, who also directed multiple episodes of the series.
