The Invasion season 2 release date is on the way to Apple TV Plus

When is the Invasion season 2 release date? Marvel might have just given us Secret Invasion and an army of hidden Skrulls wreaking havoc on Earth, but the folks at Apple TV Plus got there first with their own tale of aliens digging deep to take over the world.

It’s the brainchild of co-showrunners Simon Kinberg and David Weil, known for the X-Men movies and one of TV’s best drama series Hunter, respectively.

Invasion season 2 release date and reviews

Invasion season 2 premiered on Wednesday, August 23, 2023, exclusively on Apple TV Plus. We’ll now get episodes weekly every Wednesday, right up until October 25, 2023.

It was a long, long wait, and we were beginning to think the cast had actually been abducted. But the release date is finally here. With the Foundation season 2 release schedule in full flow as well, it’s a great time to be a sci-fi fan with an Apple subscription.

Collider said in its review that the show “reinvents itself” in this new series into something totally different, while IGN said in a highly positive write-up that “an inescapable love of sci-fi is etched into every frame”. On the more negative side, Paste Magazine said it is “a show about aliens that never comes close to understanding its humans”.

What is Invasion season 2 about?

The second season of Invasion picks up 121 days after the invasion, as the aliens escalate their attacks against the humans.

Can humanity survive the onslaught? You’re going to have to tune in to find out. Kinberg promised that this season would be even bigger and more intense than the last one, which is quite a pledge. He even described this season as “the storm” if last season was the quiet before it.

We’re hoping for a truly global fightback against the alien invaders as one of the best Apple TV shows continues. And they’re even more of a formidable foe this time around.

Is there an Invasion season 2 trailer?

The Invasion season 2 trailer debuted on July 26, 2023.

Things are looking pretty dicey for the humans, given how dangerous these aliens are. Well, we were promised that this would be a truly titanic war.

It has been four months since the initial attack and humanity is now trying to communicate with the aliens, who now have more of a foothold on Earth. For the sake of human survival, some sort of negotiation needs to be able to happen.
