In the trailer Apple shared, which features Neill’s character Sheriff John Bell Tyson philosophizing about humanity’s purpose on Earth, we get a sense of the story. The main characters are spread across the globe in locations like Tokyo, London and Afghanistan. The first signs something could be amiss appear when Tyson discovers an impact crater in a farmer’s field. Eventually, all hell breaks loose, and toward the end of the clip, we get a brief glimpse of the threat to humans.
Invasion isn’t the only big-budget sci-fi series heading to Apple TV+ this year. Provided it isn’t delayed, Apple’s adaptation of Isaac Asimov’s Foundation will also premiere in 2021.
