When is War of the Worlds season 2 out?

As of writing this article, a release date has not been announced for the second season of War of the Worlds.

But it could be quite some time until the show returns as the show has only recently started filming again.

Like with many shows, there was a delay thanks to the coronavirus pandemic but Producer Johnny Capps told Deadline having less people on set wouldn’t be a problem for the show.

Capps explained: “It’ll certainly help that, as a post-apocalyptic sci-fi, War of the Worlds is all about small, isolated groups and vast, empty landscapes. “Fortunately, we are a show which is in a world where there aren’t that many people around.

“There are things that work for us creatively.”

What is the plot of War of the Worlds season 2?

War of the Worlds is a re-imagined version of the H.G. Wells classic story.

This time around, the plot is set in the modern-day, both in France and the UK.

In series one, after astronomers detect a transmission from another galaxy, they realise it is physical proof of intelligent extraterrestrial life.

The official synopsis for series two reads: “In series one of War of the Worlds, an alien attack all but wiped out mankind, with just a handful of humans fighting to survive.”

The synopsis continues: “No one felt more rocked by the invasion than Emily (Daisy Edgar Jones), who discovered she may have her own strange personal connection to the aliens.

“In series two our characters will be left reeling by the possibility that the invaders could be human.

“A tense fight to take back the planet awaits them.

“For some, the sheer desperation to survive will lead them to contemplate sacrificing one of their own.”

War of the Worlds season 1 is available to watch on Fox.
