Trailer for Orson Scott Card's Intriguing New Sci-Fi Series EXTINCT
Ender's Game author Orson Scott Card has created a new sci-fi TV series called Extinct and we have the first trailer to share with you for it today. This actually looks like it could be solid series and It definitely has an intriguing story that grabbed my attention.
The 10-episode action-packed series takes place 400 years after the extinction of the human race and follows a small group of humans who are revived by an alien civilization. The aliens claim they want to restore the human species, but the reborn humans uncover new dangers, hidden agendas and powerful secrets that challenge that claim and threaten to annihilate the human race all over again.
Extinct carries the colony of revived humans through struggles with the aliens who extinguished humankind centuries before — while trying to understand and get along with the mysterious aliens who revived them. Nothing is as it seems to be, and if they aren't careful, courageous, and unified, they'll find themselves under the control of one group or the other.
That's a pretty cool concept! I just hope that they can execute it properly. The series was co-written by Aaron Johnston (Earth Unaware, Earth Afire, Earth Awakens, The Swarm) and it was directed by Ryan Little (Saints and Soldiers, Outlaw Trail). Chad Michael Collins (Sniper, Freakish) is set to star alongside Victoria Atkin (Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate), Jaclyn Hales (Unicorn City), Yorke Fryer (How to Get Away with Murder), Jack Depew (Mad Men, The Fosters) Matthew Bellows (Grimm, Fuller House) and Jake Stormoen (Mythica).
The series is set to debut on October 20th on ByuTV. Check out the trailer and let us know what you think!
