In October 2021, streaming service Apple TV + presented viewers with a fantastic new project Invasion. It was received ambiguously by viewers and criticized by critics, but by the end of the first season, it became known that the show had been renewed. The release date of season 2 of the Invasion series is expected in 2022, but there is no exact information on this, as well as the plot details of future episodes. The director of the project, Simon Kinberg, is known for working on most parts of the X-Men franchise, the main roles in the series went to Sam Neill, Golshift Farahani, Shamir Anderson, and other actors.
What do you think, is it worth filming a sequel, and what should be in it?
Invasion is a fantasy project inspired by the book War the World by H.G. Wells, but with a heavily revised concept. The authors noted that they did not have the task of showing directly the invasion, aliens or war with them, but the idea of the show was to show the reaction of different people to the events taking place. To this end, the series has chosen a huge number of characters that are extremely different in nature and lifestyle, who are faced with one phenomenon – the invasion of aliens. The new episodes release date are expected in 2022.
The show begins with an unknown object falling somewhere in the deserts of Arizona. Later it will become known that he has a foreign origin and is associated with the invasion, but for now, the heroes of the show will have to remotely guess that something strange is happening in the world.
Among the characters in the show are an elderly man, a group of schoolchildren from Britain, a participant in the space program from Japan, and a military man from Afghanistan. The heroes are in no way connected with each other, but they are connected by one thing – a lack of understanding of what is happening in the world after the aliens. The release date for season 2 of Invasion is expected in 2022.
The new Apple TV + was received ambiguously by the public and was marked by low ratings. Despite this fact and the huge costs in measurement, verified in the success of the project in the $ 200 million season, the data was obtained in the new year in 2022. The authors of the series note that the main criticism deals with the slow development of the show, since the action is highly concentrated on the characters and motivation, and almost completely ignores the main theme of the picture – the alien invasion. According to rumors, this will change in the coming season, and the events will become more dynamic.
