Apple Reveals Invasion Trailer and Release Date for Sam Neill Sci-Fi Show

Shamier Anderson stars in the streaming series directed by Simon Kinberg and David Weil.


Yesterday Apple released a summer preview that featured many of its upcoming shows, and today the streamer gave us a first look at its upcoming sci-fi series invasion, which premieres on October 22nd.

The drama series comes from an Oscar-nominated producer Simon Kinberg (The Martian) and Hunter Creator David Weil, and follows an alien invasion from different perspectives around the world.

Sam Neill (Jurassic Park) and Shamier Anderson (Stowaway) star next to it Golshifteh Farahani (Extraction), Firas Nassar (Fauda) and Shioli Kutsuna (Deadpool 2), and the character-focused series was directed by the Emmy nominee Jakob Verbruggen, whose TV credits contain The alienist and The autumn.

Kinberg and Weil co-wrote the series Andrew Baldwin (The Outsider) and the three also act as executive producers Audrey Chon (The twilight zone), Amy Kaufmann (When they see us) Elisa Ellis and Verbruggen as well Katie O’Connell Marsh (Narcos) from Boat Rocker Studios who produced the show.

Invasion is a 10-episode series, and Apple will release the first three episodes on October 22nd before releasing the rest of the episodes weekly every Friday thereafter. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’re as positively surprised as I am. Anderson is an emerging star in this industry and I am excited to see him alongside Neill, who is always a welcome presence on my screen.
