I will not gloat because here in the USA we are about to see the finale of Season Two of War of the Worlds on Sunday!
This has been a spellbinding season: bleak as ever, and darker too, with more human violence and even more emotion. The complications hinted at as the first season closed are laid out, episode by episode, until now we are the precipice of decision-making. What will happen? How will this season end?
I’m not telling. But Canadians will find out soon enough:
Season 2 of War of The Worlds premieres on Wednesday, October 6 at 9 p.m. (9:30 NT) on CBC and CBC Gem.
One of CBC’s most-watched dramas last year, WAR OF THE WORLDS returns with an action-packed second season in Fall 2021. Set in present-day Europe and based on the timeless story by H.G. Wells, WAR OF THE WORLDS is written and created by the BAFTA award winner Howard Overman (Misfits, Crazyhead, Merlin). After a series of brutal losses, the human survivors of the alien attack mount their own fight to take back their planet. It’s four months after the initial attack and Professor Bill Ward (Gabriel Byrne) has discovered more and more about the aliens. Most shocking of all are the undeniable similarities between the humans and the aliens – but Bill can’t find any possible explanation . . .
The CBC Press Release with the new Fall Schedule barely mentions the series at all, but that’s okay. YOU know when it is scheduled to land on your screens now, so be sure to stock up on popcorn, drinks, and whatever stuffed toy you like to hang onto when the going gets rough in your favorite TV show. What?! You don’t have a favorite stuffed toy?
Well, now is the time to get one, believe me! heart
