Apple's New Sci-Fi Show Invasion Gets Dramatic First Trailer

Sam Neill stars in the alien invasion show, which hits Apple TV+ in October.


The first trailer for Invasion has been released. The new sci-fi thriller series arrives on Apple TV+ in October and stars Jurassic Park's Sam Neill.

Like most first teasers, the Invasion trailer is big on atmosphere without giving too much away about the story. We see the main cast, which also includes Shamier Anderson (Awake), Golshifteh Farahani (Extraction), Firas Nassar (Fauda), and Shioli Kutsuna (Deadpool 2), all of whom play people in different countries, while a voiceover states, "We will finally have our stand." As the title suggests, the focus of the series is on some sort of alien invasion, and while we don't see what exactly has invaded the Earth, there's enough to know that it's something big and scary. Check the Invasion trailer out below:

Invasion is written and produced by X-men movie veteran Simon Kinberg and David Weil, who created last year's acclaimed Amazon series Hunters. The show premieres on October 22 with the first three episodes, with subsequent episodes releasing weekly.

Apple TV+ is set to release a variety of other highly anticipated shows over the next few months. Season 2 of the hit sports comedy Ted Lasso arrives on July 23, and the series has already been renewed for Season 3. The epic sci-fi series The Foundation is expected later this year, as is the second season of the Jason Momoa-starring fantasy series See. On the movie side, Martin Scorsese's thriller Killers of the Flower Moon is currently in production, while Tom Hanks will star in the post-apocalyptic drama Finch.
