Is Invasion Season 2 Confirmed Or Cancelled By Apple TV+? All You Need To Know
Are you counting down the days until Invasion Season 2? Fans of this suspenseful post-apocalyptic drama have eagerly awaited news about the series’ second season. With a dramatic cliffhanger at the end of Season 1, viewers are eager to discover what happens next. But when will they get the answers they have been waiting for? Here we provide all the available information about the release date for Invasion Season 2.
Was Invasion Season 2 Cancelled or Renewed?
It’s a little surprising that “Invasion” has been renewed for a second season, given that the show’s critical reception has been, to put it mildly, mixed. Its Rotten Tomatoes Tomatometer rating, as well as its audience score, are both significantly below average. There’s also the not-insignificant matter of the fact that the show is extremely expensive to produce. According to star Shamier Anderson (who portrays military man Trevante Ward), the first season of “Invasion” had a $200 million budget, according to Anderson (per The Hollywood Reporter).

Invasion Season 2 Confirmed Release Date
The release date for Invasion season 2 has yet to be confirmed, even though a second season was announced at the end of 2021. The second season of InvasionInvasion began filming in the United Kingdom and South Africa in January 2022, with KFTV reporting that the shooting period would continue until “late summer.” Since there have been no reports of production delays since then, we can assume that filming for season 2 has concluded.
If season 2, like the first, has a seven-month post-production process, we can expect season 2 of Invasion to premiere no later than early spring 2023. Regardless, expect an official release date to be announced shortly.
What Is The Plot Of Invasion Season 2?
If Season 1 were laying the groundwork for the titular InvasionInvasion, Season 2 would significantly ramp up the action, with showrunner Simon Kinberg telling Deadline in July 2022, “the second [season] is the full-on action of the battle for Earth that I’ve always wanted for the show.”
Following the first season’s events, Season 2 will begin a few months later. Kinberg predicts that the aliens will have annihilated multiple nations by this point, indicating that the situation has become grave. While the show will focus on the macro-level details, it will also delve into the daily lives of our heroes as they are forced to confront this alien threat. Kinberg has stated that the characters will attempt to remain optimistic in the face of this otherworldly destruction by focusing on “things like hope, love, and family” despite new and dangerous threats.
Invasion Season 2 cast
The cast of Invasion season 2 will likely include all of the surviving characters from season 1. These characters include Mitsuki (Shiori Kutsuna) and Trevante Ward (Shamier Anderson). As the InvasionInvasion continues, new characters will likely be introduced. In addition, while Sheriff John Bell Tyson (Sam Neill) and Ahmed Malik (Firas Nassar) appear dead, Casper’s connection to the hive mind may be able to bring Tyson back to life, and Ahmed may appear in flashbacks.
