Epix released a trailer for the second season of “War of the Worlds,” which premieres on June 6. Set in present-day France and the UK, the sci-fi series is a re-imagining of the classic novel written by H.G. Wells. After detecting a transmission from another galaxy, astronomers realize that they have received definitive proof of intelligent extraterrestrial life. Mankind was wiped out just a few days later by a devastating attack. Left to survive in an eerily deserted world, the remaining pockets of humanity must escape what is hell-bent on destroying them. As a tense fight to take back their planet awaits them, the second season of “War of the Worlds” will see the main characters ponder the possibility that the invaders could be human. For some, the sheer desperation to survive will lead them to contemplate sacrificing one of their own. The series will star Gabriel Byrne, Daisy Edgar-Jones, Léa Drucker, Natasha Little, Stéphane Caillard, Adel Bencherif, Ty Tennant, Stephen Campbell Moore, Bayo Gbadamosi, Aaron Heffernan and Emilie de Preissac. “War of the Worlds” is executive produced by Howard Overman, Julian Murphy and Johnny Capps for Urban Myth Films in partnership with Canal Plus and Fox. The sci-fi series was produced with the support of funding from the Welsh Government through Creative Wales. Richard Clark returns to direct the first four episodes of the series, while Ben A. Williams will direct episodes five through eight.
