“Invasion” will debut on Apple TV + on October 22, and Apple is making more of the show and what it means with a new feature on YouTube.
In “Invasion”, Earth is eponymously invaded by an alien species that threatens the existence of humanity. The series follows five ordinary people from around the world as they struggle to understand the chaos unfolding around them.
The new feature detailing the motivation of the characters and some discussions with the show’s runners gives fans a look at the show from a new perspective, and looks at how the central tenet of the show is about alienation, both literal and figurative.
“Invasion” stars Sam Neill (“Jurassic World: Domination”), Shamier Anderson (“Awake”), Golshifteh Farahani (“Extraction”), Firas Nassar (“Fauda”), and Shioli Kutsuna (“Deadpool 2”). The trailer includes the song “This Bitter Earth (Heavy Duty Remix)” by The Seshen.
The series, filmed in New York, Manchester, Morocco and Japan, had to halt production in March 2020 when COVID-19 closed planned filming in the UK. It restarted production in August 2020.
