The sci-fi alien invasion series aptly titled Invasion is returning to Apple TV+ for its second season this August, and now has got an exclusive first-look at the season in a brand new clip.


In the action-packed featurette, executive producer Simon Kinberg reveals that in season 2 audiences will find the series is "really in the thick of the war" and that "the aliens have a stronger foothold on Earth".

Meanwhile, Aneesha Malik star Golshifteh Farahani says it is "a story about a collective surviving a moment of complete chaos" and Mitsuki Yamato star Shioli Kutsuna says that the aliens manage to "really get into your head" in the new episodes.

Farahani explains that the aliens have "evolved" and that they are now "more vicious, more aggressive" than we saw them in season 1.

However, she also stresses that the series isn't just about the alien invasions, but is also about human connections.
