The upcoming sci-fi series created by Simon Kinberg and David Weil will debut in October, bringing on-screen a new take on the classic alien invasion leitmotif.

Besides Neill, the cast will also see Shamier Anderson as Trevante Ward, “an extraordinary soldier stationed in Afghanistan.”Additionally, Golshifteh Farahani is Aneesha Malik, “first generation Syrian immigrant, wife and mother living in Long Island.” Firas Nassar will portray Aneesha’s husband, the successful businessman Ahmed Malik. Last but not least, Shiori Kutsuna acts as Mitsuki, “an intelligent member of mission control in Japan’s space program JASA.”
The first teaser serves as an introduction to all the cast. Right before the end of the video, there is also a quick glimpse at the alien spaceships. You can watch the official Invasion teaser in the player below.
